Dark, malty and delicious - but also dangerously quaffable. This style ale began in 18th Century Britain, but died out as pale malts becasme more economical than their darker counterparts. We’re reviving the tradition and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Dark red Brown color with thin white lacing. Mild chocolate/nutty/malty aroma. Palate is slightly crisp up front with smooth finish. This is a very delicious Brown.

A second sample was this fine brown ale. Hardly an electrifying style this is instead an excellent sessionable beer. Though your wallet may not agree your palate will be happy after a couple of these.

Aroma / Appearance - The almond brown base overwhelms the minimal head. Noble hops, malty iced tea, and nutty blasts of caramel tickle the senses. Peanut butter on white toast makes the mouth water.

Flavor / Palate - Nuttiness, malts, and noble hops ease into a warm transition that invites more reflection. The finish is like walnuts ground up into a smoothie. This is a solid beer that balances drinkability with the need to be able to taste things after a couple of imperial pints.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Sample at the brewpub on 8/29/11. Clear dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of light roast, caramel and nuts. Malty flavor with a bit of diacetyl butteriness and roasty coffee with a caramel finish.
