A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.

Pours a nice brown color. A little hoppy with some roasted malt flavors going on. Has a somewhat nutty flavor to it with a bitter finish.

Thanks to Lord Gorlock for this tasty treat. Pours a rich black/brown color, tan head on top, which disappears relatively quickly. Aroma is very porter-like, with rich coffee and chocolate flavors blending with mild hop spiciness. Flabor is sweet, coffee notes, nuttiness, and a light tobacco flavor. ends nice and dry. I like it.

Nice brown ale, not too bad. Very dark with a tan head, and has a chocolaty aroma, nutty taste also. Good Brew.

Black body with tan head, nothing unusual. Smells of malt, chocolate and coffee. Not very good on the tongue, taste is boring and unimaginative: nuts and chocolate. After is slightly sweet chocolate. Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchase at New World Brewery in Ybor City, Tampa, FL.

Thank you to DrunkAsASkunk for this one. Pours deep dark brown,with a medium off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, corn flakes, almonds, cabernet, hops, and slight prunes. Tastes malty, with hints of brown sugar, toffee, almonds, caramel, and slight Coca-cola. Nice, smooth medium-bodied finish. I haven’t had a bad California beer yet.

This beer is the greatest. What can I say? It’s the nectar of the gods. Also, if some restaurants/bars have the large bottle and it just keeps on giving. It has a nice subtle scent. The appearance is quite dark, however the beer goes down surprisingly light. I have found my beer. I have been drinking Downtown Browns for over five years now. I could never pass on this one.

Pours deep brown with a thin off white head. It has a nose that is nutty and roasted, and a flavor of roasted hazelnut and malt. Very little bitterness from hops. All in all average.

Deep brown in color. Lots of roasty aromas. Flavor is roasted with a sweetness to it that makes you come back for more. A little under-bittered but a fine beer.
