This rich, dark and decidedly tasty ale is brewed with coffee and cocoa which lends a complex and roasted flavor profile to balance brown sugar notes of a typical American Brown Ale. In 2012 NPB won a Silver Medal at the GABF in the Gluten Free Category with the Brown Ale, and starting this September, will be packaging and distributing this ale nationally.

shrubber85 (10670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2016
Bottle. Acetone aroma - just a hint of malt comes through. Brown with small head. Sweet tangy acidic light caramel malt and light grass. Solvent aroma and smell overwhelming - no date on bottle so not sure how old this is.

Patrickctenchi (6031) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle: Clear, coppery-brown with a frothy tan head. This tastes and smells like spray paint..... Tangy, metallic..... Absolutely VILE..... I hope for New Planets’ sake that this was just a bad bottle....but looking at the rates, it might be a false hope.... Hard to believe someone authorized this for production....

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a nut brown color with red highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was off, medicinal, metallic and had a bit of molasses. The flavor was bitter, sour, medicinal, metallic, off and odd. Unfortunately long finish. Medium body. Disgusting.

Aggie80 (808) - Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Strong head and lacing on the pour. Cola color throughout. Flavor is slightly burnt and malty. Bitterness comes through in the aftertaste, not something I’m likely to obtain again.

well...i’m officially not a fan of any of these beers. they all have an off smell and taste, and this is no exception. nothing resembling a traditional brown except (kind of) the color.

Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
This brown ale poured a deep amber colour with next to no head. Even after a vigorous pour. Scents include herbal liquor and cardboard. Flavours of very light vinegar and ripe fruit. This has to be off. Otherwise you guys have alot of work to do...

bhensonb (14079) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather dark copper with a slight beige or tan head. Aroma is strange, but does have a cocoa note. Med minus body. Flavor is rather ugh, and finishes somewhat thin and acrid, tho the cocoa survived. Not liking it.

Clear copper color with metallic aroma with some chemical. Sweet molasses flavor with some funk.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2014
The aroma is cardboard, brown sugar, and chemicals. The appearance is light brown with a very thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall pretty much like all the New World Beers.

tnkw01 (1717) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear, medium brown color. Medium to small head. Funky, sweet, molasses aroma. Taste, toffee, molasses, touch of funk. Not really bad for a gluten free beer.
