3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at BrickHouse. Aroma of earthy hops, nuts, coffee, solid quantity of roasted malt. Flavor the same, very rich brown ale, practically a porter in body but with the lovely brown aroma profile. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a thick creamy head that reveals the palate. I would be lying if I said that this beer had much in the way of a striking aroma, but this was not reflected in the taste what-so-ever. Highly roasted malty taste was dominant from start to finish but there was a hint of nuttiness also.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice toasted coffeeish mouthful with a little bit of toasted flavor. Has a hint of rich almost buttery nutty aftertaste. Qaulity brew.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown beer, thick creamy off-white head. Pale malt, faint toast. Served too cold, but there is little in the way of complexity. Light maltiness, but fairly thin-bodied. Light toasted nuts in the finish, but very non-descript.

this was surprisingly good - I’m not a fan of the brickhouse but this beer was dark rich roasted malt flavor and very complex palete - enjoyed it fully

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was surprised by this one - a lot of brick house beers really don’t sit well with me, but this had a nice creamy body, and a very smooth flavor of roasted nuts and caramel - a tiny bite of hops in the finish - a little buttery, but not in a diacetyl-like way - the metallic character that plagues many of this brewer’s beers was not present at all.

Dark brown pour with a thick head. The aroma showed caramel malts with a nice hint of hazelnuts on the mouthfeel. It drank very creamy.

The man who this beer was named after, Paul Brown, was drinking at the Brick House when I had this one. It was pretty decent, it had a dark brown body, and wasn’t bad.
