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.

Can. Mostly clear deep brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of cocoa and a bit of coffee. The flavor is lightly sweet and a bit nutty but not much here.

unclemike (2850) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Pours cloudy copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of coffee, nuts and malt. Bitter, roasty flavour of coffee beans, with sweetish malty notes and touches of fruit. Bitter and sourish finish.

kingaugusta (191) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Pours copper-brown with a big off-white head. Nose is strongly chocolate and brown sugar and a slight tart note. Flavor is less interesting, though chocolate definitely dominates the palate. Finish is fast. Nothing exceptional but certainly very drinkable and solid for a simple beer.

ChainGangGuy (4720) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2015
16 ounce pour - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, brown body with some ruby-tinted hues at the edges. Slim, ivory-colored head. Smell: Caramel, brown sugar and cocoa atop toasted breadcrusts charred and burnt at the edges with some mild, lighter fruity hints underneath. Taste: Toasted malts with nutty caramel and brown sugar. Lightly fruity, hint of raisin, and, maybe some cherries, too. Thereís an underlying burnt roastiness that overrides the more pleasing íbrown aleí tastes. Backdrop of floral hops and some light bitterness. Drying finish with that roastiness having latched on. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: While itís not bad itís not overly likable with the sustained roasted kick.

ContemplateBeer (1945) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Old Town. Aroma: Slightly spicy brown toast with some cocoa powder in tow. Appearance: Dark chestnut brown with soft carbonation holding up a foamy tan head that settles into a partially bubbly skin. Flavor: Semi dry toast up front becomes more spicy; cocoa enters and adds a semi-sweet element, but ultimately dries up at the finish. Palate: Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nicely done and flavorful brown ale; if anything, it feels a little heavy for 5%.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2015
The beer pours a brownish red with a small off-white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends roasted and caramel malts, and the taste is slightly umami and slightly sweet with strong nutty and subtle cocoa flavors. The palate does have a thin texture and medium-light body, but the carbonation does match nicely with the flavors dancing on the tongue.

JStax (4633) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has sweet malted milk balls. The taste is mind of whopper-esque. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Decent, but very sweet.
