3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle(thanks Tyler!) and served in a Bell’s dimpled mug. This beer poured a semi-translucent brown color with a lasting tan head. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, nuts, and biscuit. The flavor was nice and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, along with a mildly spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth with light carbonation. A very nice example of the style. I wish I could get my hands on more of this!

12 oz. bottle pours a clear chestnut brown with a small beige head and practically no lacing. Smells of roasted malts and yeast. Aroma has hints of chocolate and fruit (raspberry?) The finish is slightly sweet, clean, and satisfying. As Minnesotans would say to praise this: not bad at all.

Thanks to Deliriumfest for this one in a trade!
A-Completely transparent chestnut brown colored body. Pours with an approximately 2 finger foamy off-white head. Head eventually fades completely. No lacing left behind in the glass.
S-Nose has a very sweet, sticky nose of caramel and toffee, behind this is a hint of nuttiness.
T-Initial flavor of sweet caramel and toffee. These flavors intensify for the finish and add a hint of roasted nuttiness. Flavor is clean otherwise.
P-Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight, drinkable body. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.
O- This is a nice English Brown Ale. I haven’t had an English Brown in awhile and it was nice to revisit the style. This brew is very sweet and has a strong flavor. It would be perfect for making bread with. Wouldn’t mind having this again.

On tap. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some roastiness. Good flavor, solid enough bitterness to let you know it’s there. Good beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Nutty, dry, slightly sharp aroma features Nutella, toast, carob, and caramel scents. Interesting smell. Pours a clear, dull copper to light auburn. Sparkling liquid. Large amount of fluffy, cream-colored head. Produces a smattering of lacing. Simple, sweet taste features caramel and brown sugar flavors. Dull aftertaste. Light body and watery; insubstantial. A bit lively on the palate. This is not my style of beer.

This is a great brown ale. Nutty, chocolate taste with a hint of raspberry. Damn good brew. I have yet to be let down by a brau brother beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Rich, somewhat dark brown with an orange-red hue. Small off-white head forms with spotty lacing.
Milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Very nice malty smell overall.
Semi-sweet malt backbone of caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. A nice nut flavor helps cut the sweetness which turns slightly drying at the end.
Relatively low carbonation, medium smooth body, slight dry finish. Just a nice pub ale feel overall.
Both full flavored and easy drinking at the same time. One of the better English Brown Ales I have had.

Friend of mine gave me a bottle on the day it was released. Pheasant season opener 2007. Very nutty flavor with strong chocolatey tones. A lot more complex than I thought it would be. Impressed and can’t wait to visit the Brauhaus sometime and taste all there selections.
