Ungstrup (30256) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2010
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt as well as medium notes of caramel, malt, and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish. The body is, inspite of the alcohol note, thin.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a deep amber glare and a minor tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and breadish roasted malty. Dark roasted malt, chocolate and breadish flavoured. Bitter and fruity hoppy into the finish. Ends dry and hoppy.

Pours a chestnut brown color with no head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and bread. Some roasted malts, chocolate, bread, and a touch of hops. Very nice beer! Quite tasty.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2010
12 oz bottle shared by rateyourpoison. Pours an unclear soft brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, bready with plenty of chocolate malt and a nice toasted grain note. Flavor is sweeter with an even bigger chocolate character, a bit of a burnt roasted note but mostly sweet with caramel and toffee and a subtle but present earthy hop balance in the finish Medium body and a bit of a sharper carbonation. Pretty good brown ale

12oz btl. Pours deep brown with a hint of red and a thin light tan head. An aroma of roasted malt and vanilla coffee. Smooth to start with tha sweet lasting maltiness with a nice bitter kick towards the end. I wrote brown ales off at first but this is another great one.

Brown ale is often times synonymous w/ bland and boring and this is one of those exceptions that proves the rule. It is roasty and hoppy enough that you’d probably call it an American porter if didn’t say otherwise on the label. In other words, because it is flavorful, you think it is a different style. The color is dark and porter-like. The head is nice and thick, made of evenly small bubbles. A slightly piny hop pressence hits the nose first but is backed by a nice, roasted character. This is a medium dry beer which works quite well w/ the pale ale-like hoppiness and gentle roasted character. This is maybe slightly less roasty than a good porter or a stout but there are many bad porters and stouts that aren’t nearly so flavorful. A creamy but lively palate rounds out this reserved but excellent brown. If more brewers put this level of attention detail into their browns, maybe more people would give a shit about the style.

Beautiful deep chestnut in color poured into my new DFH pint glass, with a thin, foamy tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel and chocolate with a touch of nuttiness, and a hint of hops. Flavor is malty with tones of caramel, Cocoa and molasses and just a hint of dark fruit. A nice Brown Ale. Creamy and smooth. light bodied for an American Brown. But one I would get again.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Very cloudy brown (dark apple cider) with a pathetically-thin warm tan head. Smells of coffee, toffee, chocolate brownie cookie with a mild hoppiness. Flavor is a delcious chocolate cookie with mild spicy hop flavor and bitterness to balance. Candy. Nice full body. This is simple, sweet, malty, and delicious.

nsquishee (630) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Roasty, malty, chocolatey aroma. Small off-white head with a deep brown color. Light sweetness, light bitterness combines with moderate carbonation. Very tasty brown ale with complex flavors of oak, malt, and a dash of hops. Solid choice for a fall beer. Go Dark Horse!
