Brown Ale, sound boring... Well that's usually because it is... Until you drink voodoos Big Brown Betty and you realize, this is why everyone try's to make a brown ale! It just happens that most people fail miserably. In my experience the flavor of BBB does vary a bit batch to batch but it never disappoints and when it's on, it is simply transcendent

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours decently with a nice reddish brown hue that passes through very little light, has a one finger brown head that disappates somewhat quickly, and minimal lacing on the glass. The beer smells decently with chocolate malts up front followed by a blended hoppy scent. The beer tastes great with a nice malted/hoppy flavor that gives away to a chocolate malt finish. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is carbonated very well and leaves you somewhat clean. Overall, a decent brown ale that appeals a chocolate lovers palate.

Dark, opaque, brown colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Chocolate and roasted grain aroma - a slight sour aroma as well. Taste is very tasty malt and chocolate. Some coffee in the back. Very nice beer.

22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a darker brown with a thin beige head of foam. Aroma is rich milk chocolate, mocha, marshmallow, nougat. Reminds me a lot of a three musketeers bar. Taste is pretty sweet. Dry-ish finish. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at HOTB. Pours an extremely cloudy brown color like chocolate milk. I'm not sure what's going on with this, looks like shitty toilet water. Nutty aroma. Some coffee. Slight bitter taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from a trade. Deep brown color with thin white head. The nose is dominated chocolate malts with peanuts skins and molasses. Real nice nose. Flavor is pretty much the same with the addition of some toffee and a mild Earthy hop. Medium-full body with a slight creamy texture. A very good brown ale, above average.

12 oz bottle from the Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Certainly one of the best browns out there and very deserving of the high average scores. Loved the sugary taste of the malts.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate frothy beige head, nice lacing.   Cocoaish nose, a bit unsweetened, bakers chocolate perhaps.   Soft nuttiness and bready characteristics.   On the tongue it comes across first with grape popsicle and its wooden stick.   Backside is a bit bready, koolaid like sweetness finishes it off.   Wished it were a bit maltier... almost bordering on the thin side.   Expected more chewiness.
