COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Breckenridge Brewery's Mighty Brown is a towering behemoth of a brown ale, rich, robust and full of personality. And it will go well with every other big event, meal or day in your life. Savor it. And ration it accordingly.

The 22 ounce bottle poured a clear dark garnet colored beverage with an off-white, modest sized, rocky head that was mostly diminishing but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was complex but mostly malty with a moderate presence of molasses straw and mild coffee. There were also notes of dark dried fruits - raisin and date - with a hint of brown sugar. The body was medium full with a nice soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy texture. The flavor started off moderately sweet with the taste of molasses and coffee. That sweetness lasted throughout the medium-long finish and was joined by a hint of smoke and dried fruits.

Dark brown color with reddish hues; clear. Tan colored head that leaves a lasting crown. Aroma is caramel, light roast, and some alcohol notes. Flavor is caramel, slightly nutty, and just a hint of milk chocolate. Alcohol is quite detectable but not offensive in any way. Body is medium to light, but smooth. Overall I think this is a nice beer for a really good price. 22 oz bottle, $2.99 from the Pour House Bottle Shop.

22oz bottle. Poured a dark reddish / brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes of lighter nuts, chocolate, toasted malts and caramel. Not bad for a Brown Ale.

Kevin (2098) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 22, 2006
bottle. pour is black with a thick lasting mulatto head. aroma is peanuts, toffee, light coffee and bread crusts. flavors are rich mutty malt with caramel,, a good little dose of hop flavor on the southside that is striking me as floral. lingering caramel and weak coffee and cream. the alcohol is not in your face, but noticeable a few sips in as it builds up. bread crust flavor is here too, a touch of butter too. not a bad one, iím not upset about buying this one at all.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a darker brown with some red when held to the light and a small bubbly off white head. Aroma was nutty, chocolate, toasty and caramel. Flavor was also nutty, chocolate, caramel, nutty and a bit thin.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle on 9/9/06. Pours a dark brown with a nicely maintained tan head.. Sweet malty aroma. Medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is primarily malty sweetness with a hint of hop bitterness, but the finish is sweet.

hotstuff (4230) - Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Medium sized tan head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, transparent, carbonation, and a reddish brown hue. Sweet, malty, chocolate, toasty, and nutty nose. Flavor was caramel and nutty. ABV was not very noticeable. Needs more flavor. Mildly tingly mouthfeel.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Pity, this seems to drawing a mixed review and I am sitting on the letdown side of the fence here. The alcohol just seemed overpowering for only 7.5 and the taste was hidden by it. There is some light roasted flvors along with a bit of caramel/hazelnut but this one will never match the IPA in this series.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bomber Bottle. Pours a dark coffee color, very little head on a good pour. The aroma is very faint, with just a hint of chocolate and very little else. Iíll start by simply saying the flavor and mouthfeel combination is superb, probably my favorite brew from Breckenridge. At the beginning, itís nutty, chocolate, earthy taste is quite strong. It slowly and quite smoothly fades into a malty and quiet finish. The carbonation isnít too active, and the mouthfeel in incredibly silky.

Easy to drink...it just slides down with a sweet silkiness, mildly frothy and without harsh edges. Yet that smoothness comes with a downside, in that it has very mild flavors up front (caramel and some molasses is about it) and a quick finish. The alcohol is not apparent as alcohol in a "hot" way, but the lack of dimensionality makes it come out a bit. Very attractive (very very dark for a brown, good dense head like a good Belgian), good feel in the mouth, and very drinkable--not a bad way to spend the evening with a 7.5% beer--but there isnít enough flavor depth to make this a real winner.
