A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

A: More coffee and toffee than normally in a brown ale. A little metalic note. A; Looks perfect for a brown ale: dark brown in color with a nice creamy tan head. Excellent retention. T: A good caramel toffee note. Cream note. Milky. Goes down easy but with some good flavor. P: Creamy with a medium body. Metalic finish reminds me of a porter. Great showing for a brown ale. Brings some flavors that remind me of a porter but a little more.... chewy? A little too sweet in parts but very nice.

Excellent flavor with superb body. No bite. It does pour pretty flat with no head, but it is delicious.

330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Rating from May 2013. Great looking beer when poured and the thick brown head hangs around for a while.

boxofrane (2050) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Can from Mari’s. Pours an ugly murky brown, fizzy like a coke. The aroma has plenty of roasted malt, chocolate notes, a bit of espresso. The taste has a nice mix of milk chocolate, coffee bean, fairly sweet but easy enough to drink. Not a bad beer from a guy who isn’t big on brown ales.

TJ Tallahassee can. Good enough where I just drank the whole can and completely forgot to write notes. Reminded me of sweet, rich, milky, coffee with a hint of nuttiness.

Pours dark caramel brown with no head (I had the can on ice). Aroma is nutty with chocolate malt. There is also some smoky java character as well. Flavor is sweet and smoky with a predominance of the nutty flavor. The aftertaste is nutty and sweet as well. Very nice.

Canned. Mahogany body with a small beige head. Chocolately at first with some doughy notes, then a sweet lingering roast character. Thin but flavorful.

12 oz can. Vacation in Tampa. Almost solid dark brown; big, light tan head. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, roast, vanilla. Medium body. The absolute most killer "standard" brown ale I can remember. Really great for 5%.
