A smooth dark ale with hints of caramel and roasted nuts. This fullflavored English style Brown Ale perfectly balances the bitterness of the hops with a sweet malt base. "Why have a ten... when you can have THE ELEVEN!"

Contract brewed for Native Brewing Company.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body circled with a thin ring of bubbles. Smell: Aroma of toast, roast, caramel, and nuts. Yes sir, it’s a brown ale, alright. Taste: Flavor of toasted nuts with a small hint of roast and a restrained caramel sweetness. Light spicy hops, low bitterness. Drying finish with a lingering nuttiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Sure, it’s designed for easy drinking, but in a world filled with brown ales, this one is just so-so.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a reddish/brown with a small 1/8 inch head. Smells of malts, mild hops and spices. First sip has some spicy notes but not much flavor and not much of a finish. Fairly light bodied, carbonated well but lacking in flavor.

daknole (9224) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine. THis is an ok beer, a tad underrated. Brown pour with a whitish head. A nutty aroma is follwed by a malty, nutty flavor. Some hops balance it out a bit. Not the best beer in the world, but certainly drinkable.

Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of shipyard yuck, some fruit, some earthy hints. Tastes fruity with a decent herbal finish.

Thanks to daknole for sending this along with several other beers in a recent trade. I’ve been drinking them as the last days of summer fade away in a change of pace from huge beers. This one was solid enough that I’m going to have to go against the grain. At its heart it might only be a brown ale but it is well done enough that it could be a daily drinker.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish brown body was dark yet still let through a trace amount of light. A little watery it still made its presence known nonetheless. The nose was just what I expected from a simple brown ale - gingerbread and dark iced tea. Light with only a hint of malt it was easy on the nose.

Flavor / Palate - The mouthfeel was more carbonated than I thought it was going to be. After this nice discovery came malt, a trace of bitterness like that found in an iced mocha and then a fast fade. I wouldn’t have thought to seek this out but it was a great find. The hoppy finish gives it enough character to set it apart from the crowd.

Bottle at GOBF ’08...pours brown with a very generous, fluffy beige head. Nose was toasted malts, caramel, some toffee notes. The beer was moderately sweet from the malts with notes of caramel, toffee, maybe a little coffee and nuttiness. It was very well balanced and easy to drink. Smooth on the palate, with a sweet, dry finish.

12oz Bottle - Trade - Daknole
Aroma – Nice dark malt beer with a light nutty aroma.
Appearance – Brown in color, Thick head and hazy.
Flavor – A dark malt beer with a nutty flavor this was a nice easy to drink beer. Was expecting more from this beer. Little flavor of coffee and toffee in the back.
Palate – Good Mouthfeel, nice texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a decent brown ale with some small issues. Needed ore time or less of one of the special ingredients. I think they had too much in the beer and it was fighting for the flavor to come out.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Daknole. Pours a clear brown with a lot of floaters and a huge 3 finger rocky beige head that floats around like an iceberg. Nose is slightly sour upfront with mild caramel malts coming through. Taste is malt, some roasted nuts and a mild hop finish. Lighter mouth feel. Thanks Dakine.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Bottled via trade with DAKNOLE. Pours a clear brown but you can still see through it. Medium off-white head that settles quickly. Sweet aroma with roasted malt and chocolate. Rather thin mouthfeel and flavour. Just hints of coffee and bitterness. Easy to drink but not real complex.
