Aroma: rich chocolate malts, a touch of coffee, very light caramel note, resin and piney hops. Pours brown, tan head with good retention and excellent lacing. Flavor: very nice interplay between rich malts and resiny hops. Chocolate and coffee dominate the malt profile, with a hint of toffee and a good dose of toast. Moderately high bitterness for the style, pine and some citrus, excellent balance. Medium body and carbonation, smooth texture. Another excellent HF brew.

500ml bottle bought a while ago at the brewery. Bottle date: 11.17.15. Aroma: lots of caramel, nuts, molasses, roasted malt, a tad smokey. App: dark burgundy, small mocha head, great lacing. Perfect look! Taste and palate: light to medium body, a tad watery, smokey light lingering bitter finish probably coming from all the hops. Overall: better than expected. Not exactly my favourite style hence why it took a while before I open it but not disappointed. This feels really light. A great match with my rib steak.

Dark brown pour with creamy tan head... Aroma of chocolate, caramel, nutty malts... Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, almonds, smooth creamy mouthfeel, some light chocolate bitterness on finish... Well done for style, but not my favorite style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shawn and Co. are incapable of creating flawed beers. This is another perfect example of its style, thick and rich in the manner of a stout, like a triple-C malt-heavy liquid caramel infusion. Dont listen to me, just find one & drink it : )

Not so much my style, but will give it a shot. Dark cola pour with a tan fluffy head. Aroma on nuts, roasted malts, toast, and earthy hops. Taste is caramel malts, roasted toffee, almond nuts, and doughy bread. Thin to medium body. Easy drinking. Good for the style!

JBPortland (1480) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2016
500ml bottle pour dark almost opaque brown black with finger of head and some faint light edges. Great brown ale, my favorite brown ale, drinks like a lot of other brewery "stouts". Also close in profile to a porter, very nice nutty chocolate and light roast, grain, and crust, toast, coffee and walnuts, balanced bitterness, earthy, refined and delightful.

La Belle George nous présente une couleur presque noire, intéressant poiur une brown ale, avec très peu d’effervescence, et enfin un petit collet. Au nez, on sent beaucoup le malt torréfié, la mélasse, caramel et enfin le sirop d’érable vermontois (je présume!). Le goût en bouche est très fidèle au nez, avec l’aspect sirupeux qui domine. Au final, cette brown ale remet en question notre définition d’une brown ale standard, pour le mieux. Excessivement bien fait. Bravo.
