COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Cypress Brown Ale is a bold, American-style brown ale that would make our phriends from Vermont proud. It is made with lots of English brown malt to give a deep, smoky roastiness. Caramel and chocolatey characters abound along with an earthy hop aroma and flavor.

On cask at Magnolia. Clear brown with a beige head. Roasty caramel aroma. Nutty, toasty, roasty, sweet taste, with a slight bitter finish. Mmm smooth cask mouthfeel. Good.

10 ounce sample on cask at the brewpub. The aroma has a really nice nuttiness, as well as some good toasted malt character. Lightly sweet, and nicely aromatic. Transparent mahogany body with a medium, bubbly light tan head. Good lacing. Starts with a flavorful toastiness, before a little light coffee character comes in the middle. Finishes with light astringency. Very easy-drinking.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is deep brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roast, cocoa, graham crackers, bread, lightly earthy, vanilla, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is roasty, bready, biscuity, grassy, graham cracker, and slightly herbal with a lightly roasted bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery. It pours a nice mahogany color, clear but dark with an off white head. The aroma has great notes of strong toffee, cocoa and toast. Kind of like a Heath bar without all the sweetness. The flavor is more toffee, toast, mild red berries, and a hint of mineral tartness and toastiness in the finish. Dry. A great session beer.

Classic looking brown. See through. Nice off white head. Aroma is brown sugars and caramel malts. Taste is slightly roasted, caramel, no hops, very good for a low ABV beer! Tastefull!

Dark brown/light amber pour with a soapy off-white head. Coffee grounds and roasted malt on the nose. A hint of chocolate, some cocoa powder, and a bit of coffee grounds. The flavor is semi-sweet with some toffee and bread malt notes. A little bit of earthy hops, some cocoa powder, a light coffee note, and some dark chocolate bitterness.

Aroma is a bit light with roastiness, some peanuts, hints of coffee and licorice. Flavour has coffee and licorice with a dry, nutty finish. Smooth and a bit watery palate. Your typical Brown Ale.

On tap into a snifter. Dark brown with little head. Aroma is malt without much else. Flavor is malty and chocolatey with Rosemary. Creamy with a slightly spicy note. Overall a decent brown ale.

On tap, bartender said this was made with no hops, but Rosemary instead...? I definitely taste and smell Rosemary, color is dark for a brown. Pretty cool being on haight street though! Interesting...

A pretty solid brown ale. Nice malty flavor, although a bit subtle. Really wish there was some more flavor so it could be a truly nice beer.
