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.

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!

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...

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 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.

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.

on tap-pours a thin tan head and mahogany color. Aroma is rich medium/dark malt-cocoa/roasty. Taste is rich medium /dark malt-coffee/cocoa/roasty, some earthy hops. Easy. Soft carbonation.

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.

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.

Tinco (561) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2012
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!

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.
