brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Light brown pour with an off-white/khaki head. Kind of roasty for a brown ale with some chocolate, toffee, and caramel malt notes. A bit of roasted nuts, earthy and spicy hops, and a light fruitiness. The flavor has a good sweetness and some decent roast character. Caramel, toffee, roasted malt, and nuts. Light hop flavor, mild fruit, and a light bitterness. Not bad.

On tap at Hollister. Extremely solid Brown Ale! Pours with a large, creamy white head over a light brown body. Aroma of coffee, toffee and toast. Taste is full of chocolate, caramel, and light nuts and baked bread. Creamy mouthfeel and light bubbles. One of the best I have had of the style.
