COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brown Ale.
"That’s Mr. Brown too you!” We used a lot of base malt and four different dark malts in this beer resulting in a complex malt character and a warming alcohol flavor. This is a great cold weather beer, warming and smooth to take away the chill. We balanced it with Kent Goldings hops.

Courtesy of x_Rex (reddit trader), thanks Corey. Pours a murky brown (almost like brown chalk) with a tan head that leaves just a little lacing behind. Aromas are weak but basically what you would expect from a brown, malt, bread, maybe some chocolate. Flavor is like a BIG brown ale, with lots of roasty malts and some bittersweet chocolate, just a pinch of floral hops. The mouthfeel is perfect for a brown, not sticky or thick like a stout or porter. I don’t usually like browns but I can dig this one as it is big enough to keep my interest.

Poured a deep brown color into a sampler glass. Very soothing beer that tasted very malty/sweet. Not my favorite type of beer, but an enjoyable one nonetheless.

Hophaze (172) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruby color with little head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Decent balance finish with slight bitterness. Higher abv than most browns I'm accustomed to but no complaint. It warmed me on a cold Early March night! ----Hophaze out

Pours deep brown, ruby highlights and a thick, tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is creamy, bitter, chocolate malt. Nutty and roasty. Good stuff.

Pours reddish pour with a thin wispy tan head. Notes of chocolate, light roast, toffee, and fruit. Medium bodied, lightly sticky with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, chocolate, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of brown sugar. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Reasonably pleasant nose if a bit simple and mild. Too syrupy sweet in the mouth to drink very much. Overall average.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma was hoppy and brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The creamy flavor contained notes of brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow chocolate aftertaste. The creamy flavor contained notes of vanilla roasted malt burnt malt coffee and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Pours deep dark brown to black with a thin mocha head. Nose is toast, some chocolate, some earthy grassy hop notes, perhaps a bit of tree bark. Taste is fairly sweet but there’s some bitterness to balance: it’s really quite well balanced overall. Palate is definitely medium bodied, pretty rich but not too heavy, maybe a touch oily, with a pleasant toasty finish. A nice brew, one to sip on and enjoy but smooth enough to knock back if that’s your thing. Good stuff.

Block (1342) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2012
I thought this was a great beer to do nitro. The beer already has a lot of sweet malts, caramel, and alcohol. The nitro definitely adds body and creaminess. Really nice.

Brown pour with an off white head. Aroma is light and sweet. Light body and flavor. Not as malty as I had expected.
