COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
King Street Brown is the answer for those wanting a slightly more malty experience. Made in classic Schooner EXACT fashion, the beer achieves the tricky balance of malty, but not too sweet; full of flavor but not too full on the stomach. Brewed with a blend of chocolate and special Belgian malts, this beer has a roasty, nutty flavor nuanced with hints of stone fruit and leaves you with a dry lingering finish.

Bomber from LetsPour.com. Pours dark brown with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate over some moderately roasted malt. Med body. Flavor is nutty and chocolaty with that standard "brown" malt flavor. It finishes dry and rather bitter.

pours a semi-cloudy copper-brown with a very small tan head that goes away quickly, and little to no lacing. smell is of molasses, wood, roasted malt, hazelnut, and chocolate. taste is a little oily, malt, some spice, a little cocoa, hazelnut, some roastiness, and a few hops. ends oily and somewhat spicey.

On draft. A mid-range brown ale. Decent, but lacking any distinguishing qualities. Underwhelming.

Poured from a growler. Thin tan head with decent lacing. Sweet, but not too sweet. Very malty with good notes of chocolate. Body a little thin but overall a very solid brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Wingdome in Greenwood. Pours a dark brown with tiny white head. Not much in the aroma but a bit of toffee and coffee. Flavor of roasted malts with a creamy finish. Decent, but nothing special.

Don’t see what the hype is all about, I’ve had this beer on 3 separate occasions and each time realized that it was fairly ordinary. Not too malty, no dominant hop presence, no prevalent malt presence either. It’s beers like this that I wish I could say that there was a unique yeast ester or a malt ester, or even a masterful combination of fermentation control and timing...but there really isn’t. In no means is it a great beer, but by no means is it truly a horrible beer either. Yes, there are some malt notes of medium caramel and nuts, no hangover esters either, but it’s not outstanding and I would deifnitely ask about other beers on tap before ordering this one.

Growler from Chuck’s. Tasty if mellow brown ale. I suppose it’s not supposed to be too sweet but there seems to be something missing. Interestingly nutty. Slight tang in the finish, like a Guinness.

Dark chestnut brown hue, with a slim, but resilient browned silken head. A pretty balanced, nutty brown ale that is more British than American as the malt profile is the centerpiece, with muted hops just providing the support. Nice hazelnut and easy roasted aroma that follows through similarly on the palate. Just a good solid, nutty brown ale.

Draft at celtic bayou. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose and lightly sudsy tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Nice caramel nose, a little molassesy, great power and balance to it. Super nice to see in a brown. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and toasty brown bread on the mid palate with a nice earthy, slightly peaty finish. Best new brown in a while.

Tap @ Parkway, SE and other places. Clear, deep red-brown pour with a creamy, tan head leaving heavy, coarse lace. Coffee nose is a bit of a turn-off for me, but most will like it. Medium-light body and carbonation. Bitter chocolate, toffee, burnt caramel, coffee and a touch of honey liven this one up without making it overly sweet and thereby not sessionable. Hops are peppery and pine and very much in the background as they should be for a brown ale. Quite tasty, have more than one!
