Brewed with two-row malted barley, roasted barley and chocolate malt, this classic American brown ale is distinguished by its deep brown color and creamy, smooth taste.

Chudwick (2438) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12oz non-returnable bottle from variety pack - pours deep amber with khaki head. Nose is roast and coffee. Flavor adds toast and a tad nutty. A little richer than the black ale 2012, minus the hoppy finish. Bitterness is more chocolate/coffee driven. Chocolate finish, but coffee goes away.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle as Point burly brown. Pour is dark brown with some red, thin off white head. Aroma is super malty, caramel and roasted, some milk and molasses. Taste is rich layers of malt, caramel, some chocolate. Body is medium, light carbonation.

bytemesis (4607) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle. Brown ales suck. Clear brown, medium tan head, nice lacing., aroma is brown. Flavor is brown, but actually not too bad. Brown sugar, rice, toffee, coffee. Medium sweet, lacking all bitterness. Medium body, a bit creamy. Ok, this one doesn’t quite suck. So there.

mnmike (1067) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2013

MarkSachon (746) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. Just alright, certainly not in the top of its class. You get what you pay for and this case came pretty cheaply.

Travlr (15868) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear brown color, medium off white head. Aroma of light nutella. Taste is similar.

beerbaaron (1675) - Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Dark dark brown. Medium white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel i suppose, brown sugar. Flavor to match. Light to medium body. Quick finish. Not too impactful.

boozedude (2185) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours clear brown, white head, has a coffe sweet aroma, taste is excellent for its style, probably one of the best browns ive had in a while

DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear dark red / brown color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Not an incredible texture. Toasted malt, light hop, light chocolate. Flavor is fine, but not really interesting or appealing. Light sweet taste. Really average beer...

Hophaze (187) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber. Roasted malts. Drinkable. Average at best. This is what Budweiser would be putting out as their "Brown Ale". ----Hophaze out
