Bellaire Brown is a full-flavored brown ale that derives sweet caramel and toasted qualities from four different kinds of malt and specialty grains. Select hop varieties create an enticing aroma and dry finish. Bellaire Brown is very dark and rich, which makes it hard to classify as a brown, but it is certainly considered a delicious masterpiece.

Bellaire Brown was originally created to appeal to people who enjoyed drinking coffee, and to beer drinkers who are not interested in hoppy options. When Joe Short was creating the Bellaire Brown recipe, he desired a beer that was meatier and burlier than most browns. Bellaire Brown is a great gate-way beer for drinkers to be introduced to darker beer varieties.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is exactly what you’d expect, a dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and rich caramel malts. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate and light coffee flavors. I generally don’t care for coffee flavors, but they are pretty subtle in this one. Not my favorite, but I don’t hate it.

Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
This brown ale poured a deep, dark amber colour with a frothy, white head. Scents include caramel, honey and hay. First swig was smooth with medium/low carbonation and flavours of caramel, roasted malt and a light coffee flavour. Finish was malty and sweet with light roasted caramel.

Brown pour with barely any head. Light aroma. Taste is nutty. Not too sweet. A little chocolate. Disappointing that the aroma is so light. Great medium body palate.
