COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Brown Dog has been cited as a classic example of the "American Brown Ale" style of beer. Compared to a typical English Brown Ale, Old Brown Dog is fuller-bodied and more strongly hopped.

presario (4729) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2002
Rich texture. Dark colour. Low carbonation and head. Almost a smoky flavour. As described fuller-bodied and evenly hopped.

pivo (2603) - GERMANY - DEC 5, 2002
Sweet malt nose, red-brown color and a tight-bubble head. Maple syrup flavors, also brown sugar and maybe prunes. Thin-ish to my palette. Interesting qualities, but not so well balanced.

Cherry alcohol nose. Dark red color with a little head. Nice nutty and malty flavor. Crisp refreshing finish.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2002
I got this one for the lable. And I actually turned out nice. It is a well balanced beer red in colour A bit on the sweet side. It sat well in my mouth like a well behaved dog. I don’t think I’d be rolling head over heals for this one but it was okay. The appearance did nothing for me.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - NOV 8, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 very nice brown ale. well balanced. reddish brown color, not much head. complex sweet aroma - milk chocolate and nuts dominate the more earthy elements. taste is initially all sweet malt but it develops a substantial hop character ending on a slightly tangy fruit note. I’m beginning to think this is a very under appreciated brewery

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2002
Amber, not much head. Toffee and raisins aroma. Malty toffee flavors mixed with some bitterness. Not that well-balanced. My bottle was 5 months old so maybe a fresher one would be better as Volgon suggests.

jsquire (3578) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2002
This poured with almost no head, deep redish/brown color and little nose. Sweet, almost sherry-like flavors. A little thin in body. Not very interesting to me.

Humbug. Tasted like an old brown dog.

radiomgb (2422) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2002
Dark amber, almost brown colour, malty-nutty-fruity aroma, tasted almost like burnt caramel, candy like. Very enjoyable.

GABF 2002: Middy. Not robust enough.
