COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown Cow herds forth a complex biscuit and dark toast aroma. A beige head corrals this brilliant copper brown beer. Seven different malts with balancing hops round out the medium dry finish. Amazing! This Cow wonít steer you wrong.

This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt and mild hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of mild spice nutty mild hops brown malt and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

DrSilverworm (6009) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2014
12oz bottle, from Big Red Liquors in Indianapolis. Very dark red color. Thin off-white kind of bubbly head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Big dark fruit, toasty malt in the nose. Moderate bitter taste. Light sweet. Some raisin, dark fruit in the flavor, biscuity toasty malt, and herbal hoppy bitterness. Starting on my sandwich now... Good chocolate notes. Good light spicy bitterness, light sweet. Pretty nice, enjoyable brown ale. Went up several points after I let it sit for a bit and started munching on dinner. Smooth, crisp, flavorful, and easy drinking. I guess this is pretty much what I was craving... I passed by many IPAs, pilsners, pale ales, lagers, belgians while digging for something smooth and malty to go with my meal. Brown ales work great with sandwiches.

574deadzone (994) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours a hazy brown-amber with a decent sized khaki head that leaves some hanging soapy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, nutty brown ale stuff, some milk chocolate, some earthy hops and some crusty bread. Decently sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, a bit creamy, active, with a decent lengthy earthy, woody bitter finish. This is a nice brown ale, well balanced, drinkable, good quality, and somewhere between refreshing and sustaining. Like.

First Iíve ever had by Carsonís. They got the brown ale right. With slightly burnt toast and coffee flavors, you can replace your typical solid breakfast with two or more of these.
