COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Got them fancy clothes. Got that big car, suicide doors, 8 track stereo, color TVís. Liviní the American dream, now youíve 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 donít have to have solid gold pants to enjoy, but it helps.

Location/Date:Bottle shared with Ben on October 20th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with white foamy head.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel malt, faint sweet.
Taste: Faint bitterness, caramel malt, faint roast, faint boozyness, maybe a little chocolate on the end.
Palate:Medium body, lingering aftertaste, faint booziness, a little fizz.

Summary: Pretty solid beer, and first beer Iíve had that Brash has contributed to. Solid beer, but nothing really exciting about it.

"What - this was (partially) barrel aged?! That may be where the slightly off aroma and flavors that I described last night as "vegetal"came from, but damn, i didnít get any barrel aged goodness outta this one. Itís a suped up brown that if not for the green olive like offness had some serious potential to be very very good. As it was, it was still decent. Looked good, great body, and some nice complexity with the roast and malt (and I guess bourbon) in there, but I couldnít get past the off notes. Nevermind - upon further review, the brewerís description ablove is for Flight of the Pimp, a totally different beer. So this one is indeed NOT barrel aged. Good. I thought I was losing it."

Bottle, shared with my father in law. Very hazy medium brown, off white head. Heavy malts, lots of cocoa and burnt sugars, finishing with an assertive bitterness. A bit of dusty yeast. Very tasty.

22 oz, bottled 6/2012. Deep brown with creamy tan foam. Nose is brown sugar, molasses, hay and coffee grounds. Seductively silky with a sharp tang ending bitter and ashy. Taste is dark chocolate, dark roast and burnt sugar with swirls of dark fruit. A jacked up brown; i like it.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Deep dark brown with two fingers of beige head. Looks great. Aroma is a little weak, toasted nuts, slight roasted malts that yield a mellow coffee notes. Taste rolls around the tongue much like the aroma. This is pretty much just it comes billed as, a double brown ale. I actually liked it quite a bit at first, but as it warmed it became too boozy. If that was better balanced this would be very impressive. As it is, pretty good.
