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.

(10/30/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in San Francisco. 4.1%. Dark reddish-brown color with a rather creamy beige head. Nutty malt aroma with some caramel, light fruitiness and buttery notes. Sweetish malty flavor with some nuts, toasted bread notes and caramel. Medium-bodied.

Cask at the brewpub. Roasted "brown" aroma. Opaque brown color with a decent tan head. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Flavor is dark roasted malt (but not burnt) with enough fuggles? hop to balance. Finishes malty and dry. Good brown.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - APR 21, 2008
...was surprised at this beer. It was similar to a New Castle, with more quality. Deep flavor with nuttiness, but an overall lighter beer. It was good, and I wanted more.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Rich aroma with roast, nut, caramel and chocolate. Moderate hopping present. After that, body is highly carbonated, somewhat light. A good start and a bad finish.

Damn solid brown ale here. Pours DARK brown (are you sure they didnít pour me the stout again?). I thought they messed up at first but then had a nice whiff and knew they had everything straight... these guys are pros. They even have a specific glass for each beer they serve. Aroma is malty, some caramel, some roasted malt and also a decent dose of hops. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Nice.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
(On tap) 4.9% ABV in my version. Clear, dark, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Lightly nutty nose. Medium body, some nutty flavours and a dry finish. A very uncomplicated and highly drinkable Brown Ale. 210307

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2006
Pour is dark dark brownish black with some ruby highlights and a dense nice tan head...smell is great, with nice roasted malt and some nutty and toffee aromas too...taste is sweet and also very toasty with some great chewy malt flavors...finish is lingering and leaves a great aftertaste...weird, a fairly deep brown ale...

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Dark brown. Upfront liquorice, toffee malts. Light body but smokey, toffeeish malts make this is pleasurable brown and the only fully realized beer I had at Magnolia.

Cask at the brewpub (3.7%). Near black. Pleasant roasty malt aroma that is carried on over into, and getting more intense, in the flavour. Light bodied with creamy mouthfeel. The low hop rate results in low bitterness and leaves alot of room for a well developed malt flavour. My favourite beer at this place.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
On tap, at the brew pub. Nutty brown aroma. Dark brown, medium tan head. Interesting malty taste - rather flavourful. Some other taste present - is it a spice? Maybe some dry bakerís chocolate? Whatever it is, I like it and it adds to the flavour. Just a tad watery, otherwise solid and very good. Man, Iíve had some excellent brown ales on my trip so far.
