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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light brown shade, starting off with a rocky texture, but becoming thinner and creamier as it recedes. Some lacing is left on the glass. S: Fairly typical of a brown ale; nuttiness and chocolate are the dominant aromatic notes. I also notice a touch of fruit esters, and even some earthy hops. T: Thereís an initial nuttiness on the opening. This slowly transitions to a middle of caramel and a finish of earth, marzipan, and mild pine. Not interesting, but I find that many brown ales donít fit that criteria. M: I like the creaminess at first...which turns into a less-than-desirable finishing chalkiness. On the plus side, decent dryness and carbonation makes it very easy to drink given its ABV. O: Itís pretty solid. I kind of feel like saying "itís not you, itís me" due to the fact that itís well made and well balanced, but not my thing. Brown ale fans will really like it.

Clear, brown color. Thin , off-white head. Aroma of bread and caramel malt . Same notes in taste , moderate malty sweetness . Seems like nothing special, but everything is in perfect proportion in the taste. I really enjoyed it.

Silvan7 (903) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
on tap. marrone, velata, schiuma beige fine non molto persistente. aroma tostato, quasi bruciacchiato. caramello, malto, melassa e frutta secca. Gusto abboccato, dolciastro e tostato allo stesso tempo. Di nuovo frutta secca (nocciola). finale erbaceo luppolato. corposa, rotonda, piena, poco carbonata. equilibrata ed armonica. un filo troppo luppolata per lo stile.

mR_fr0g (6102) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Cask at gbbf 2015 day 4. Nice reddy amber coloured pour with a fading loose greyish head. Aroma is dry candied ginger, spicy wood, bit odd. Some pine needle hop on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of nutty grains, faint toasted bread, wood, some stale malts, ginger. Palate is light, semi sweet, lowish carbonation. OK, maybe not in great condition
