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.

I like Smuttynose beers, and this one is a solid example of the style. Nice brown pour, with aroma of malt, nuts, and hops. Tastes malty, with some nuts, sweetness, and hops at the finish. Decent complexity.

Tap: My first from this brewery. Very nice, though not amazing. I enjoyed the stronger hops flavors, but felt that the carbonation was just a bit more than needed.

One of my favorite from the Portsmouth Brewery, I usually order this when I go to the Jimmy LaPanza room. Dark caramel color with not much head when poured from the bottle. Goes down fairly easy. I’d recommend stopping by to try one if you are in Portsmouth.

Had a bottle of this with Argo at RFD in D.C. Expected a lot more. Aroma has a slight smokiness to it. Has a slight dirt taste to it. Dark copper colored appearance. Light, off white head. Flavor has a bit of nuttiness to it, bit that is about it. Thin mouthfeel. The dog on the label is nice....

sloth (2602) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2004
Large light tan head, medium retention and lacing. Lightly hazy brown ale with a red hue. Lightly malty, smokey nose. Med/light body. Medium dry malt flavors with hints of chocolate, fruit and caramel malts. Finish is medium sweet. Couple more hop flowers would of been interesting.

sfontain (832) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2004
Aroma of caramel, coffee, some chocolate, and malt. Looks good--lasting off-white head with lacing down the glass; dark, dull brown color when held to a light. Flavor is sweet and of malt, caramel, and coffee. Bordering on porter flavor, but it could be a little thicker. Overall, this is a solid beer that is tasty and quite drinkable.

Lubiere (10788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2004
Caramel coloured beer with a caramel and vanilla nose, with light floral hops. Good malts with nutty roasted finish, sweet aftertaste which blends with the bitterness very well. Round mouthfeel, with an interesting powdery body. mmmm...
