COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caramel brown with a hint of chocolate, Brewhouse Brown melds four kinds of malt to create a satisfying, thirst-quenching brew. Best enjoyed at 55 degrees, this ale is slightly rich and roasty, yet leaves a dry finish. It is the perfect companion for a hearty meal.

Nice medium foamy head, brown colored with some tones of red. Malty and toffee like nose. Light milkchocolate taste. Long lasting malt and cereal aftertaste. But all in all not that interesting.

Meaty, chocolatey nose. Flavor is the same but light, and the palate is waaay too carbonated.

This beer just stank of alcohol. there was almost no flavor but the alcohol! A good, brown color and a reasonable head. But an awful beer. I've found that almost all the Real Ales are!

This brew was generously passed along from Fly in Texas to BeanDip, then to me, SO thank you both; especially FLY, That was very kind of you!
I’ve gotta tell ya, this beer pours dark as the Abyss, with a massive creamy and frothy lite caramel colored head. The aroma is all chocolate malt, well maybe a pound or two of toffee. The flavor is a plethora of malt, more chocolate, more toffee, notes of peat, coffee, almonds & walnuts, but a little hop to back it all up. Truthfully I’m really impressed! This is far closer to a sweet stout in my books, a bit bland, but damn tasty!
FLY, you shouldn’t have, but you did, so THANKS!!

I would probably give this a much higher rating were it not for my being anything but a brown ale fan. I seem to be able to distinguish when one is a good one from discussions with other fans of the style. I would say this is a pretty decent one.

Deep brown in color, creamy, nutty, malty, tasty. A solid beer, you won't go wrong with this one.

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Very nice palate for a brown ale. None of the thinness that seems to plauge so many dark beers. Beer pours rich hearty dark brown with big tan head that is retained. There is nice lacing. Aroma is definately earthy and smokey. Flavor is roasted/smokey with nice full mouthfeel and a spicy/dry finish. Very good brown ale.

Aurelius (4230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2003
Nice chocolate, earthy aroma. Pretty smooth, with a hint of fruit over a drinkable, but sturdy roastiness. The palate gets a little thin, but leaves a trail of chocolate. Per the other bottled Real Ale brews that I've had, they seem to have trouble balancing out the carbonation -- akin to Dogwood brews from Atlanta in that respect -- the pour goes all fizzy but the brew loses CO2. Perhaps it's the heat down here or something.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Beautiful brown with large creamy head and good lacing. Aroma of tobacco, caramel, leather, and citrus. Sweet malts are balance by tangy hops, finish was short and mostly clean. Dry and soft mouthfeel, medium-bodied. A nice little brown that offers more on the palate than you would expect.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2003
Light brown color with a good roasted malt aroma. Body is sweet and robust with a touch of sour malt and good complexity. Smooth and easily drinkable, a pretty good brown ale.
