A classic, flavorful brown ale with outstanding character coming from both caramel and chocolate malts. Brickway Brown is full-bodied, yet smooth and always refreshing.

Draft at Rock Bottom Indy. From notes. Nutty caramel dominates taste and aroma. Good, but not great.

10 oz. glass at the brewpub. A fairly dark brown beer with red. A one finger tan head. Aroma is roasted nuts and cocoa. The flavor also had those roasted nuts along with some molasses. Only the faintest hops were noticed. Very easy to drink it is both bitter and sweet. Pleasant.

Draught at RB Indy/Downtown. Dark ruby, black with highlights, very cool looking! Lacy tan head. Nose of roast and berry. Watery body. Taste of roast and mocha, light berry, sticky candy bar malt and faint toffee/chocolate. More impressive than any of their light beers - has some complexity and depth!

Growler shared for Brother Eric’s 30th. Pours very deep brown with slight transparency and minimal beige head. Nose is mostly sour stale malt...but my palate is a little off due to the spicy cookout celebration. Flavor is smooth, mellow, slight choc malt and sweet nuttiness. Very good style and flavor. One of the better "year rounds" from this location.

Had on tap at the brewpub awhile back. It was arguably my favorite offering I tried while visiting there.

BiddleBrau (1164) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Hazy brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is of roasted malts with some sweet notes. Roasted/burnt flavor, dry finish. Flat on the tongue. Not sure if what I had was a Brickway since it was noted as a robust brown similar to a porter. On tap at RB, Indianapolis.

draft at the downtown brewpub - Pours dark brown with an off-white head that laces well. It has a minimal nutty malt aroma. The flavor is sweet and full of caramel. It’s light to medium bodied and an easy quaffed session brew.
