Tap at Pizza Port. Pours a translucent amber brown with a smaller creamy off white head. Aroma of nuts, tobacco and chocolate. Flavor of the same.

On tap at PP Carlsbad. Pours a dark brown, creamy light tan head. Roasted malt, bread, sweetness, nuts, chocolate, and light bitterness to balance. Really very drinkable and quite tasty. I’m not a big fan of the style, but this is one of the better examples.

On tap at Papago -- thanks to hellbilly for the reminder. Pours a chalky brown color with a trim tan head -- looks more like Franklin, actually. Smells and tastes caramel, sweets malts, muted cocoa, cream, and dry hops. Very drinkable -- good grief!

charlie brown on tap at papago 2/4/10. mostly opaque chestnut-y brown with a somewhat tannish head which sticks around as a film. the nose is really nutty... full of caramel, dark grain, roasty coffee, woody vanilla, cream and some herbal hops. it tastes a lot like canned coffee drink with caramel and cream... side notes of toasted nuts, roast, vanilla, wood and herbal hoppy dryness... this is just a step away from being a porter... delish. full body, luscious mouth feel... very creamy, rich yet hoppy and terribly sessionable! 8/4/8/5/17/4.2

This was a fine brown ale. Looks good, sweet aroma. Definitely not a nut brown flavor to this, but a bit hop heavy, like many PP beers. Good guest beer at Big Dogs

On tap at Pap. Deep amber brown pour with a foamy head. Roasted nuts, malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. A touch of sweetness. Pretty good brown ale.

From tap at Carlsbad. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small white to light tan head. Aroma is mild fruity and yeasty. Smooth roasted and light caramelish. Smooth toffee dark malty finish. Nice one.

Feel weird going to Pizza Port and not drinking something hoppy or a Stout. This beer pours brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor of coffee, chocolate. It is a bit thin, but is still a decent brown.

On-tap at Papago bar. Very dark brown and lacey, though was only a whisp of a head. A bit watered down. Some licorice taste. Sweet and essentially uninteresting, did not pick up the unique use of hops.Average mouthfeel.
