A nice winter ale. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells a bit of herbs and cocoa. Taste is herbs and chocolate upfront, with a vanilla finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

ok, this one is cheating. it is a brown ale, but it’s LC’s Downtown Brown all spiced up for the holidays, giving it a better body, and heartier mouthfeel and aroma. gotta have atleast one every year."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a brown with a large tan head. Aroma is an ok roasted chocolate and caramel malt. Flavor is more chocolaty malt with a bit of roasted nuts. Finish is again a ok roasty malt. Alcohol is no problem. For a brown ale its decent but it does not offer anything beyond the average. Another bargain bin pick-up that is still drinking well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a large fading head.
Very malty aroma with nutty malt, a bit of chocolate and some soft booze.
Sweet flavours too. More nutty malt, almost cloying. Some melanoidin notes and booze.
Needs more carbonation.

A fantastic American brown ale. The aroma is bread, honey and citrus. The taste is biscuits, almonds grapefruit and glucose. Nice length, nice body. A lovely warming winter brown ale.
