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.

tap at Indiana winterfest - Pours medium brown with a small tan head. There’s a caramel malt aroma. Flavor is the expected caramel malt with good roastiness and a robust taste that makes this medium bodied brown ale work well.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose some some roasting to it with a slight malty sweetness coming through underneath. Taste is actually a little toasty with some elements of coffee to it. Definitely has a bit to it, but is fairly inviting. Interesting...

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft at People’s. Pours a coppery brown with a persistent off white head. The nose is caramelly, somewhat bland. Some English yeast notes. Faint cocoa? On tasting, moderately bitter with a caramelly quality. Also a bit winey. Some strange astringency distracts. An odd brown ale overall, really.

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.

12 oz. can courtesy of queenholly. I was really surprised by the color, couldn’t believe it was brown!! No head. Toffee and chocolate with underlying nutty nose. Similar flavors as the nose; caramel, nuts and some chocolate. The flavor is bold for a brown ale. If there is a “Imperial” brown ale this is close. Carbonation is real low yet the texture is lightly creamy. Pretty damn good.

Bottle. Nutty milk chocolate malt aroma. Brown with a small tan head. Roasty coffee and chocolate malt flavor with a light to moderate herbal bitter finish. Medium creamy body.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown with a light brown head, spotty lacing, the chocolate is pretty pronounced on the nose, quite a bit of sweet caramel too, the flavor has a chocolate front end with a dry finish, honestly the abv was probably a little too high with this one, if it was turned down a few notches I think this thing would knock it out of the park, not bad by any means, just kind of missed the mark.

Bottled. Pours a dark brown. Smallish tan head. Coffee and chocolate malt. Weighty without being too heavy.

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.

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.
