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.

Really a very remarkable brown ale. Stronger than normal and heavier in flavors. Has a roast and chocolate quality more akin to a stout than what is found in most brown ales. Very nice!

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.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
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...

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and toffee malts plus some light floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average to smooth texture. Borders on a stout a little bit for a brown ale, but a good brown ale.

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.

Draft. Small tan head that was mostly lasting, no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a brown hue. The aroma was malty, nutty and earthy hops. Ditto for the flavor. The mouthfeel was tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the hops were more upfront than the malts considering this is a Brown Ale which caught me off guard. That being said, I truly enjoyed drinking this beer as it is definitely worthy of a try and one I would drink again.

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

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; sweet and malty with notes of toffee and light hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.
