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.
Old Brown Dog has been around for many years. It was first brewed in 1988 at the Northampton Brewery. In 1989 it won a silver medal in its category (American Brown Ale) at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. It has since been retired from competition but enjoys love and respect from people all over the world.

Poured a medium reddish-brown with an averaged sized brown head. Sweet, malty, nutty, caramel, and light chocolate smells. Sweet malty/nutty flavors. An OK beer.

Bottle. Reddish brown, white head. Sweet maltiness with a hint of roast. Nice but sort of simplistic. Mondiale 2T (Tiggmtl).

A quite good, hardy, nice toasty and somewhat burnt roasted tasting brown ale. OK+ mouthfeel and content. To top it off, served up by a very weathered and droopy Al Pacino look-alike.

this brown ale was sweet and malty smelling. taste is very malty that goes down pretty easily. a very easy to drink beer that didnt leave a very good impression. doesnt hold a candle to rogue hazel or dfh indian.

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.

A verty tasty, enjoyable brown ale. Very rich with a nice nutty taste. Very rich, smooth taste. Give it a try if you like good brown ales.

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....

Nice toasty aroma w. some hops. Very nutty, slightly sour, brown malt and a slightly floral hop finish.
