COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brown is a British Style brown. It has a roasted nutty flavor complimented by a great malt sweetness.

Draft sampler, 4 Aug. 07. Almost Porterish in color, though holding it to the light shows its brown edges. But, in fact, it actually tastes like what a lot of big brewers try to pass off as porters. A bit of toffee flavor, sticky with some smoky sweetness, and just a note of fruitiness. Could actually be my favorite beer here, just because it pushes the edge of its intended style.

Rich and chewy, a really decent nutty brown ale. Nuts and toffee are predominant, with just a hint of hoppiness in the aftertaste. Has also a bit of a graham cracker crust kind of maltiness. Enjoyable!

jandd1983 (2538) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2011
It poured a brownish color with a small head. The aroma was of malt and mild hops. The taste was sweet that expanded into a hoppy malty flavor.

PhillyBeer2112 (2523) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Very brown, with a ruby tint. Mild chocolat and roast aromas. Dry, chalky on the palate, with some chocolate, and maybe some spices, like cinnamon. Also a molasses component? A little on the thin side.

Huhzubendah (2496) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 3, 2012
On draft at the source. The beer is chestnut brown with a thin, light beige collar. The aroma offers some sweet, fruity notes atop a light malt bill. The flavor is decent, albeit a bit to sweet. A bit more bread and malt character would serve this beer well. Decent beer, and easy enough to get through a pint, but this could stand a few improvements.

Tasted 9/7/08. Draft from the brewpub. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Good malt roast with a smooth finish. Fudgy and nutty. Went great with the meatloaf I had for dinner!

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2008

boto (1844) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2004
Draught: This pours a fairly clear brown color. There is a bit of a rapidly dying tan head. Not too much lacing. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with a hint of nutiness. Maybe some fruits, but very subdued. The taste is malty sweet and nutty. A hint of roastiness to it. The aftertaste is a bit dry also.

Tap at restaurant. Poured a very dark color with a small white head. Aroma was nutty, caramel, bread, and some dough aroma. Flavor was nutty, with some smoke. Medium body. Good beer.
