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.

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 (3000) - 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 baker’s chocolate? Whatever it is, I like it and it adds to the flavour. Just a tad watery, otherwise solid and very good. Man, I’ve had some excellent brown ales on my trip so far.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2005
Pint pulled at the Magnolia Brewpub in San Francisco, a dark black with a large head which was creamy but frothy on top. A malty aroma, toffee-like. Flavour is reminiscent of stewed fruits with a hint of sweet bitterness. Very very smooth in the mouth. On of my all time favourites!

PorterPounder (7424) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2005
On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Dark brown pour, off-white head; wort-like vegetable-like aroma. Pick up some coffee in the flavor, a bit of back end nuttiness. Smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Ok bbrewpub brown ale.

Cask at Magnolia. Dark burgundy. Mild, thin palate, a little maple, brown malts, some wood, maybe some smoke. Decent.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2004
Tap@Magnolia Pub and brewery, San Fransisco- pretty sweet and thin, some toffee and nuts, grainy texture. Not a big fan of this one.

bb (8572) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 24, 2004
Draft (handpump). Little aroma. Brown beer with a quickly dissapating head. Slightly burnt sour taste that was a little vinegry, but also smooth enough. Very light watery body. Maybe the cask had been on for too long and the beer was slightly off, or maybe not.

jazz88 (2669) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 23, 2003
