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.

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.

burg326 (4931) - Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle pours a coca-cola brown color, light aroma of chocolate, nuts, sweet malt, and some caramel. Flavors are the same, rather dialed down on booziness for over 7% abv, decent brown ale and would drink agaim.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours deep deep brown or almost deep red with a very small light brown head. Flowery hops, roasted malts, chocolate, bread, caramel and toffee aromas. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, mild caramels, toffee, bready malts with some light biscuity and/or toasted notes again with flowery and almost some very light citrus notes and some fruitiness. Medium dry finish with medium light bitterness to balance. Medium light body for what I was expecting from a 7% brown. Liked it but could have used some more body and richer, thicker feel and flavor.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Taster on tap at Black Acre. On nitro. Clear dark brown color, with a good thin half-finger of creamy nitro head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium-plus body, smooth lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Interesting nutty malt profile. Kind of hazelnutty, light caramel malt, lightly toasty. Moderate sweet taste. Solid nitro brown ale.

Tmoney99 (12402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Draft fest sample. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish that lasted. This beer would go well with a good cigar.

HoppyAlesToYou (164) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Slight caramel, chocolate, and nuts in the aroma that rises off the small tan head that rests atop a dark brown ale. The taste is sweet followed by an earthy bitterness, very well balanced. An enjoyable brown ale, but not really worthy of four-pack treatment.

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.

cbfobes (2800) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2013
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.

tmongoose (1865) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured dark brown with tan colored carbonated head lots of bubbles. Aroma I get a mild roasted malt scent along with some bitter either from coffee or chocolate. The flavor is of a deeper richer roasted malt. There is bitterness about half way thru the mouth feel. This is a medium tonight bodied beer. For brown ale not to bad.
