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.

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.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a smallish biege head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, and nuts. Some bitterness at the finish. Decent Brown Ale.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2011
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.

Poured from draft at their taproom. Clear lighter brown pour. Kinda watery. Decent but flavor with some malts. Average brown

Warm brown colour in draught. Sweet and nutty with a bit of pecan? in the aroma. Again, would make a good session beer if served in small enough glasses. Good for washing down spices.

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.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Looks a little thin. The nose is dusty, nutty malt. In the mouth it is super smooth and light with some real nutty sweetness in the finish. Pretty good but not something I’ll pay to revisit.

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!
