January 6th, 2012 - The great American Brown is a great brown, offering up a smell straight up front combing coffee and grass notes with gentle wafts of pipe tobacco fresh from the tin. The aroma matches the wardrobe, which glimmers in the daylight, a dark chocolate lab brown, glossy and also murky. The most notable aspect of the flavor is a long, rolling aftertaste of roasted coffee, served on a mild and soft palate. The rest of the flavor is mostly built of roasted cashew, roasted chicken and a mild and mellow chocolate note.

Mortlach (1372) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 30, 2012
28/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Bruna, riflessi mogano-rubino, limpida, schiuma bianca abbondante e abbastanza persistente. Al naso caramello e luppolo si sposano alla perfezione. In bocca mostra un equilibrio mostruoso, note di tostato, pane, caramello e luppolo, un mix praticamente perfetto. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta, grande beva. Brown ale magistrale, freschissima, elegantissima e super bilanciata, chapeau!

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Light brown pour with a slick of off-white foam. Aroma is subtle with light roast, nuts, a smidge of hop bitterness, and soft, dry malt. Taste is dry roasted malt with nuts, light and sweet caramel, and a balancing hop bitterness on the finish. Light, semi-creamy mouthfeel. Nice brown.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Deep, and dark brown pour. Huge creamy beige head and thick lacing pattern. Aromas of chocolate, crystal malt, smoked dark wood. Taste is chocolate with cooked cherries on top. Other small notes of raisin, dark fruit, earthy hoppiness in the back end accompanied by slight vanilla. Tad bit bitter on the mouth.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Webby beige lace on a deep amber to marron. Floral, fresh nose with herbal hops. Taste is ligher, herbal, juicy, quenching, mild roast, moderate bitterness. Lemon tartness in the back end. Enjoyed this a bit more than the Good Grief Brown. Clean body. But when you’re at Pizza Port, just stick to the IPAs and heavy stouts.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Very dark pour. Standard nut brown aroma, but not sure if it is actually a nut brown. Very smooth to drink. Despite its heavy color this isn’t a heavy beer. All around great

SDalkoholic (2260) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
On tap at Toronado San Diego: Served with a thin layer of film for a head while the liquid was a dark almost black color of brown. As for the nose, a nutty and roasted aroma that intrigues the senses as well as my appetite. The flavor is also nutty with semi roasted malts that has a nutty/meaty flavor of cashew or perhaps pistachio. This one of the best and richest brown ales I have tasted.

On draft (guest)

Making a return visit to Lizardville for the tapping of two Pizza Port kegs I opted first for this brown ale. I’m not sure how they made it to Ohio but both were excellent, fresh, and a nice easter egg for those who were looking for a change of pace. I would not complain too much if Port Brewing / Lost Abbey were to break into the Ohio market.

Aroma and appearance - The opaque ruby brown body matched the mood of the dimly lit bar. Dense short lived plumes of foam rested on top like packing peanuts in a shipping container. Heavy roasted malts, oak, and a mellow mood felt like a hipster coffee drink from the local grocery store.

Flavor and palate - Carbonated and lively this had quite a punch. Warm and woody the feel was soft on the tongue. An ashy finish bit back though - this was not timid and mild. Like licking a dusty floor it eventually leaves a mark on the palate. The hops betray that Pizza Port (ie West Coast) touch. This is a sessionable beer with a regional twist that makes it worth getting your hands on when you don’t want a heady high ABV monster.
