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.

Poured out of bottle, 6/16/03. Dark brown, thin-looking pour with very slight head and thin lacing-- looks almost like a cola soft drink, albeit with a touch of red to it. Scent of honey, lots of sweet roasted malts. Wish the scent were a little stronger, but it's very springy, very inviting. Body is expectedly thin, quite smooth as well. Flavor is of dark roasted malts, but not very strong, and a tingly feel of carbonation makes it seem like a great stout that's been watered down by tonic water. Still a decent beer, as the finish is deliciously subtle, warm, and nutty. Not a bad one, but not a great-great either.

Rather "run of the mill" for a brown.....appearance was normal, deep brown in color, coarse bubbles. Mouthfeel was very crisp, I like a smoother brown though. Flavor was sharp, almost sour in the finish....not especially bad, just not what I look for in a brown.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Bottle. Standard sweet, malty nut-brown flavoring and aroma. Weak mouthfeel, off-finish that's a little bit on the sour/bitter side in a place where a hearty roastiness would feel better.

Suttree (5259) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2003
I've never really liked Brown Ales, I'll admit up front. This one seems, in many ways, typical. It looked fine in the glass, but no head to speak of. Very little presence in the mouth, and a slightly watery body. A surprisingly nice hop bitterness in the finish. Not bad, of course, but not on par with Lost Coast's other offerings.

Very dark brown, almost black. Just a wee bit o' head. A slightly sweet aroma. Taste is a little of roasted malt. It has a good flavor but is not so overwhelming as to demand you to only drink one a night. I think this could be a grand session beer.

Awesome labeling, but as a very good friend told me.... If the label is to fancy the beer must not be very good. I must agree this is very average.

Dark Brown appearance with a decent head and lacing. Good balance of malt and nuts. Average.

This beer is a pretty good brown ale. It has a mild thickness with a chocolate nut flavoring. Yummy.

On tap at Yard House: Very dark brown with a lacing cougar head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Rich, robust, smooth body with a fresh hop finish and candy-like flavors. Very well-balanced and enjoyable.
