COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Got them fancy clothes. Got that big car, suicide doors, 8 track stereo, color TV’s. Livin’ the American dream, now you’ve got a brew as smooth as a chorus from Al Green. Brash Brewing and Clown Shoes each made a brown ale at Mercury, then blended them. You don’t have to have solid gold pants to enjoy, but it helps.

This is pretty good. Plenty of hops, no nut flavor. Which is good. Tons of hops yet doesn’t seem like ten percent. A little sweet and creamy. Good stuff.

Pours an opaque dark-chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent yellowish-wheat head. Strong aroma has malty, earthy and caramel tones and a nutty hint. Rich flavor fills the mouth with malty, caramel, nutty molasses and bourbon tones plus a hint of - Coca-Cola? Firm, smooth texture has plenty of life and fizz. Kick off your clown shoes, be brash, try this one!

bottle. muddy deep brown, almost black, beer with a small, creamy, tan head. sweet aroma of brown sugar, creamed coffee, and toasted nuts. lots of ’brown’ in here. loaded with nutty and toasted notes, caramelized sugars, root beer. modest on the hops. warming, but i wouldn’t guess at its 10 abv. i like this beer and this style.

so first off this might be the best brown ale I have ever had. Its a clear brown with a cappichino head. Aroma is coco and cashew nuts. Taste is tangy light roast and tiny tinge of alcohol. I know this is not a super complex beer but it is really just super well done.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark murky brown with a quickly disappating tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is dominated by nice roasted malts and hints of caramel and vanilla. Bittersweet cocoa on the backbone. A bit boozy. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Alcohol definitely warms you up. Perfect on this wet cold night. Sticky bitter finish.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
22oz bottle. Toasted malts & citrus hops aromas. Pours very dark brown, light tan foam. Nice biscuit nose, toasted character, sweet malt, earthy hops, and chocolate. HEAVY syrupy body. Very sweet, with sweet toffee, nuts, caramel, chocolate (sounds like a candybar), but then there is the hops. Very hoppy; earthy leather bitterness, pine, citrus rind, and resin. Finishes with a bitter chocolate flavor along with some wood. Very sticky. Very strong indeed. Its a frisky one. Overall, a very amazing (and strong) Imperial Brown Ale. Definitely a Brown Ale, not really gonna get a score as high as some American Strongs though. (3648)

22oz bomber pours a nice mahogany with a good looking quarter inch mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up yummy rich roasted malts and coffee to go along with almonds, some molasses, anise like spice and earthy malts. The taste has a sizeable anise note followed by some rich roasted malts, nuttiness and some sweet molasses. This gets more and more spicy anise Mt Rainier like hops, damn. This is loaded with anise like black licorice notes. Pretty good stuff.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bomber from Capone’s, Frank Smith’s, and Craft Ale. Pours hazy mahogany with 3-finger tan head that laces well. Nose is intense earthy notes, hops, vienna malty, brown sugar, nuts. Tastes malty, nutty, with a bog mid-palate hop hit, and a complex and malty finish. This is a top notch brown ale, and the profile is more like an imperial nut brown ale.
