Specialty malts bring intimations of brown sugar and vanilla, which meld into the Gnarly’s character. Roasted coffee malt flavors and residual sweetness dance in harmony, obscuring the line between brown ale and porter.

Can. Pours brown with a beige head. Mild roasted and nutty malts, some sweetness, some bready notes, low bitterness, and a rich malty finish. Pretty good.

12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Clear light brown, medium body, medium carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is earthy, herbal hops, and bitter hop finish. Not for me.

Julie thinks it is a little to hoppy for her taste. Overall I think it is a nice mellow brow

Shot (382) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Can. Pours like a cola with a massive, pillowy beige head. Exceptional cling. Aromas are caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. Flavors are cocoa and caramel, toffee, sweet dark fruit. Licorice and dark chocolate in the finish. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Creamy, but lively, mouthfeel. Fairly dry finish. Very nice brown ale!

Bendrixian (1453) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
On tap. brown, sorty of murky with a light brown head. Very big toast and roasty aroma with almonds and a hint of chocolate. Dry brew with that toasty bitterness coming through and big body. very good.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate malt, nutty, light roasted malt. Flavor is that and a light hoppy bite on the finish. Really enjoyable malty brown with a light hop background. Good.

Brown ale? Maybe black. :-) Had this brew on draft. Dark brown and rich. This brown ale is stout and hides the 7% alcohol well. Enjoy!

12oz can from Pace High Carryout: copper-brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of nutty, roasty, grass, wood. Tastes are roasted malt, chocolate, sweet toasty. caramel, coffee. Nutty, herbal, bitter finish. Not a huge brown fan, but this is solid stuff.

12 ounce can, canned on 11/10/2014. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear brown color with some reddish tints to it. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like brown sugar, nuts, vanilla and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some toasted malt and a light bitter hoppiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brown ale, I wouldn’t mind buying this again. Nice to see the MadTree cans finally come to Columbus! $9.99 a 6-pack.
