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.

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Deep brown with a rocky off white head. Caramel and yeast aroma is very rich and inviting. The flavor is nutty sweet and goes over the tongue with a full roundness that really pleases. A very well done brown ale that is worth trying.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2004
This is a great Brown ale. Nice deep amber/ light brown with a long lasting moderate head. Aroma and flavor is nutty and malty with just a hint of hops to balance it out. Smooth finish. Ranks up there with Rogue Hazelnut.

Crockett (1035) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours red with a short tan head. Clean herbal hop aroma with a dull roast and some fruit. Pleasantly bitter but also full in malt character. Lightly smokey and burnt notes. Banana, caramel. Roasty finish. Very good. ’Twas quite fresh.

12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. Freshness date consists of a notch on the label, notched May, but no year. I suppose that means this year, but who knows? It’d be nice to see a year as well, so we know when we’re getting fresh beer. Weak ppfftt when opened. Poured out a deep amber color, with no head to speak of, at first. I used my pocket beer engine to produce a head. It turned out to be tan colored, but loose and fast fading. Aromas are of sweet caramel malts, along with a slight mustiness. Some yeasty bread notes, and alcohol aromas abound. Tastes are of sweet malts, balanced by just enough bittering hops to make it not so sweet. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, and carbonation is weak at best. Finishes on the dry side, with hints of charcoal ash. Sorta like when you dropped your hot dog in the fire as a kid, but you brushed it off and ate it anyway. An OK brown ale at best, but not my cup of tea.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Bottle pours a brown tinted deep amber, small white foamy head, subtle lacing, with sparce lacing.   Aroma of toasted malts, light grain, and a bit of basement.   Sweet maltiness as I sip, leading to nice roasted malt trailer.   Medium bodied, average mouthfeel.   Slightly bitter finish.   Decent, but could stand to be a bit maltier & smoother.   Thanks goes out to slob for the trade!

Very dark tasting, with a nutty malt flavor with a hint of dark chocolate. I was expecting something a little lighter at the time, so I was a little taken back. Not that bad though, pretty smooth going down, and overall a decent dark ale. Smuttynose has some good microbrews.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Draught. Nice chocolate and caramel flavor without excessive sweetness. Good spicy hop quality rounds this out. Not the least bit cloying, at least not in healthy doses. This is one of the best brown ales that I’ve had and was a definite crowd pleaser among the 10 people that I ordered this for at Murphy’s in Hanover.
