RATINGS: 5   MEAN: 3/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.94/5   ABV: -
A dark brown ale, brewed with honey and coffee, has a clean finish and a heavier use of malt than amber ale, thus imparting a sweeter flavor.

A nice dark brown pour with a sweet malt and light chocolate aroma. A toasted malt flavor with just a hint of alcohol at the end followed by a bitter that was an odd not all hop bitter. Just a slight bit watery with minimal carbonation which I like. This was the best beer of the bunch. They were out of the IPA and the stout.

Dark brown, hazy and no head. Thereís a bit of dark malt, chocolate, a touch of coffee in the aroma. The aroma doesnít smell off, so the tart finish is a bit of a shock. Kind of comes across like a passable attempt at a Oud Bruin or Flemish Brown, but I donít think it was intentional. I plan on stopping back in a few months and try this again and see if itís a consistent problem or a one-time deal. Between the wheats, the Red and this, the promise of that drinkable Lite just fell apart. How you can do a spot on light lager and flop with the more flavorful styles is beyond me. Itís not like you can hide anything in a light lager.

Rich, ebony color. Nice aroma. Not much of a head though. However, the smooth, roasted, nutty flavor make up for it. Very smooth and drinkable for a brown ale. This is the best of the lot @ Maconís only brewery.

Dark copper appearance, slightly phenolic at first, but mellows out. No real discernible aroma. Has a bit of a chocolatey back end to it, slightly sweet. All in all, decent.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Buttery and slightly phenolic aroma. Walnut brown, no head. Fairly high bittering, split between malt and hops, dry with walnuts. Silky mouthfeel, zippy carbonation and light body. Long hop finish. Rerate This was better than I remembered. This go-round it was a fairly nice, mellow beer with hings of vanilla, coffee and cocoa. Cocoa aroma without any real sweetness. Medium body, lingering bittering.
