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.

Dark malt and aroma hops in the nose. Dark brown color, clear and thin head. Great dark malt flavors nice mild hops makes for a good balance. This was a great drinking beer.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Roasty, nutty nose, somewhat sweet, chocolatey and fruity as well with some piney/garlicy hops. Pours dark brown with a thinnish beige head. The flavor is roasty up front, chocolate and fruity sweetness on the mid palate followed by piney bitterness. Nice lingering roasty/hop note. Interesting take on style, hoppy american brown. Enjoyable.

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.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a medium khaki head that diminishes slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted nuts and a bit of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

BillKismet (3342) - 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.

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

Bottle:   Deep brown, thin to moderate off-white head, little lacing.   Cocoa start, sweetened coffee, lots of creamer, seems a bit dry.   Maltly start, cocoa, sweet roasted malts, lots of sugar and cream in this one.   Not a hoppy example, but not overly malty either.   Decent balance, smooth, sweet, not overly roasted either.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of cocoa, a bit nutty too.   Enjoyable!

Bottle... Poured deep brown with a moderate khaki head. Typical of style. Not bitter or crazy but just a nice nutty, toasted malt presence with a standard yeast presence for the style. Earthy, mildly dry, not too much for hops going on.
