This dark brown ale has a gentle malt sweetness with a nutty, light caramel character that lasts into the finish. Brewed with imported english maris otter barley and fuggle hops. Its dry finish and low hop bitterness makes it readily suited to drinking in quantity. Refreshing yet flavorful.

Bought a bottle at Crown while driving through the Point. Aroma wasn’t complex nor overpowering would agree with other reviewers. Malt was more nutty and had a roasted initial taste. Light in alcohol as well. Not a beer to search out, but not one to throw out either.

Tap at the brewpub. Standard brown ale - gotta have one, right? Slightly murky brown pour with a small foamy head. Mild nut and chocolate. Okay.

Draft sample @ Ft. Wayne Oktobeerfest. Nutty roasty caramel malt aroma. Deep amber with a large beige head. Nutty roasty caramel malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

Draft: Nearly clear.........woody brown. Aroma is lightly nutty, malty. Taste is light chocolate, nut, malt. Nothing surprising, but good.

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of frothy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated cola brown colored body and a poor lacing. The initial nose was yucky and a strange brown malt. The mouth feel was mellow from start to finish with an off-tasting thick brown malt aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

tap at Dash In - Pours dark and mostly clear amber-brown with a small off-white head. It has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is sweet, mild, and bland. There’s a little caramel and in the finish some rather generic hop bitterness. It’s light to medium bodied and overall a disappointment.

Draft at Crown as "Crown Brown." Pours a very nice coppery brown with a fluffy offwhite head. Nose is caramel and some burnt char notes. On tasting, moderate sweetness and caramel but the black patent or dark chocolate malt notes are off putting unfortunately. Hop bitterness is appropriate just overwhelmed by the dark roast notes. Meh.

Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. Pours dark brown with a medium thin beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts and hops. Light body with a sweet malty character with notes of toffee and mildly bitter hops. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.

Decent but nothing outstanding or particularly interesting. Light on aroma and flavor. Some roasted malts and caramel. Light on alcohol as well.
