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: There’s 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 don’t 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: It’s pretty solid. I kind of feel like saying "it’s not you, it’s me" due to the fact that it’s well made and well balanced, but not my thing. Brown ale fans will really like it.

Aroma is dark chocolate and a bit of bread crust, almost like a burnt toast. Light brown in color with reddish highlights. Medium sized white head. Taste is lightly sweet initially followed by a light bitterness. Finishes slightly dry and quenching. Decent brown beer

Pour on tap, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, earth, hints of caramel, toffee, some slight red fruits into a bit of nuts, slight yeast. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, hints of cocoa, slight nutty notes into a nice grassy, earthy note into a bit of grain, finishing fairly sweet.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
Mild und locker im Abgang mit einem feinem Schuss an Hopfen. Dahinter leicht torfig mit ein bisschen Getreide und Kraeutern. Karamell nicht zu vergessen. Ein feines Piwo ohne grosse Schwaechen.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep brown colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and chocolate with some hints of turf. Taste of ,malt, roast, woods, leaves, mild fruits, hops and dark bread. Mild bitter finish. Solid and drinkable, yet expected it better.

rodenbach99 (3466) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Une bouteille partagée. 03/09/2015. Une robe cuivrée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de malt biscuit bien défini avec des notes de chocolat et de noix. Une bouche mince avec des saveurs de noix. Agréable mais elle n’a pas le corps que promet l’étiquette.

Bottle from beer club. Good enjoyable beer, pours dark mahogany with a thin head. Tastes of chocolate and toast. Had a little little higher than normal IBU's then you usually find in a beer of the style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
