COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure the British introduced the Brown Ale way back in 17th century. It was light brown and sweet, and brewed exclusively with brown malt. Brewer Chad Pieper decided that this was a good foundation, but as Americans do, the style needed to be Americanized. It needed to be roasted, and malty, and it needed to be a little more bitter than the style that was an English second cousin to the mild ale.

Draft. Pours a deep mahogany brown/raisin red with a lasting off white head. The perfect amount of roastyness, chocolate notes, and body.

On tap at the brewery. Best so far. Solid brown but certainly not knock your socks off good. Malty body but a little light for me.

Pours deep brown, thick beige head. Aroma is like a nutty chocolate bar. Roasted nuts, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Taste is nutty, bitter and a tad smoky. Solid beer!
