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.

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.

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 Iíll 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!

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.

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

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

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!

Donít see what the hype is all about, Iíve 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. Itís 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 isnít. 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 itís not outstanding and I would deifnitely ask about other beers on tap before ordering this one.

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.
