Tap at Hop-Scotch. Brown with a nice light beige pillowy head that lingers throughout. Caramel, raisin, some plum and molasses. Taste is more of the same. A very standard brown. Light bittering hops on the finish with good caramel and molasses present. Nothing bad about it, just a very normal brown ale.

Popped into Craft Beer Base for my free drink ticket & to enjoy a half pint of Schooner Exact King Street Brown Ale.
It pours a beautiful clear rich reddish brown. The nose is soft cocoa, candied raisins and nutty breadiness. A lively carbonation on a med-thin bodied clears the palate for flavors of nutty goodness with chewey chocolate raisin graham cookie notes.
A satisfying brown which is saying something as the style tends to be overly sweet in my opinion.

Medium brown color. Very malty nose with some nice nuttiness and chocolately character. The mouth is very malty, slighly tart with a lingering nuttty finish. Nice stuff.

On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a clear dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out dry cocoa, milk chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavour is smooth, with notes of milk chocolate and hazelnut. Toasty, nutty and chocolatey, with a dry palate. Very solid stuff - much more interesting than typical brown ales.

Draft pour at the church key pub. Pours a really dark brown with a nutty malty aroma. Smooth caramel malt flavor all throughout. A standard brown ale for me, I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is a nice mix of nuttiness and toasting, and belies a very flavorful beer. Taste is a bit sweet, with some nice toasting and some subtle caramel and nutty notes. Really interesting.

Wow, absolutely splendid. Most brown ales seem to be too hoppy or thin. This is not on either count. Strong malt flavors, which I like. Strong brown ale flavor, which I like even more. Amazed they packed this much flavor in this low of an ABV. Good, good, good!
