Bottle from Player’s BBQ in Madera, which by the way is a great restaurant with really good BBQ and a very nice owner. Flavor is strong and includes roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. This is probably the strongest brown ale I have ever had. I liked it though, and I liked the fact that it comes from the Central Valley, a place that does not have too many breweries.

Pours a deep mahogany color with a chocolate roasted aroma. Taste is slightly malty with coco notes. A roasted aftertaste that is tasty and smooth. A good nut brown in a traditional style.

Appearance was clear reddish brown with creamy off white lasting 2 finger head, lacing throughout. Aromas where bubblegum, bananas, clove like a hefe,then the chocolate, coffee roasted malts come out to play. Taste where roasted toasty nutty chocolate , toffee coffee malty.Hops and yeasts are sublime and mild. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body. The long coffee finish is good. A beauty of a unknown brown...

Mostly a clean aroma, looks pretty good. This is pretty nice. Interestingly has a bit of coffee in it to me, and the malts aren’t real nutty. This is pretty decent. A crispness to it. Interestingly, the appear to have had a labeling mishap, as while the main part of the bottle is as you can see it in the photo, some of the wording on the side says this is the Two Monkeys Brewing Company from Belmont, California. Not bad though.

22oz bottle, purchased at a Valero gas station in Madera (drove about forty minutes out of the way to pick this and the amber up). For some peculiar reason, I wasn’t expecting much from a $3 bomber purchased at a gas station? And yet... this, this is a damn fine beer. Pours a clear, dark cola-brown color; fine-bubbled light-tan head with solid lacing. Endearing, rich aroma of chocolate and light nuttiness; restrained sweetness; touches of cola and red fruits, the maltiness opens up nicely in the nose. Medium to medium-light body; average carbonation. Following the aroma, the taste shows a solid nutty and milk chocolate core, emphasizing those core darker malts without getting much bitter roast or sweetness coming into play; pretty much exactly what you want in a brown (at least a more traditional, not overly hopped brown): lightly sweet, a nice, rich nutty and chocolate malt core, just enough quiet balancing bitterness. Some fine brewing from a brewery no one’s ever heard of. Ali found some metallic notes, but I didn’t taste that (so YMMV); overall, more than a respectable brown. Medium-length finish: milk chocolate, nuttiness, balanced end.
