COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. You’ve reached the pinnacle. A healthy blend of traditional British malts give this popular style a semi-sweet, biscuity, slightly roasted flavor. Oats thicken the mouthfeel, and a handful of specialty malts add complex chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. The hops are mostly traditional, earthy British hops, but we cocked it up a bit with some Cascade late in the boil just to show those snooty Brits that we don’t approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.

Burk brewdogs webshop. Coca cola-färgad. Doft av rostad malt och kaffe. Nötig smak med lätt rökig ton. Tydliga toner av kaffe och rostad malt här också. Lite bittersöt munkänsla

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Promises to deliver the brown ale to end all brown ales but I can find plenty of reasons to drink other brown ales, this one taste mostly of burnt coffee and waters out in the end. Like the art work on the can 👌😂.

A pretty good flavor to tgis brown ale though it's crazy carbonated. Truly though the art is horrendous. Actually makes me like the beer quite a bit less.

Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 16 oz can - disgusting label with a fat guy crapping his pants. Cola brown pour, thin, khaki colored head, no lacing. Nutty aroma with some light chocolate. Flavor has similar qualities with a nice topsoil like back end accentuating the chocolate and coffee. Thick enough mouthfeel.

Pint can. Starts with chocolate malt aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, biscuit and a bit of roasted malt pours dark brown with a thin tan head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with dark chocolate, biscuit and caramel malt flavors. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with roasted malt and toffee flavors clinging to the palate. Excellent brown ale!

DATE: January 6, 2017... OCCASION: letting the annual post-Christmas dinner at Ss. Peter and Paul Church... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick... pours a heady, two-fingered clump of brown snow that sits atop a ruby-brown body full of effervescence... aroma reeks of lactose, tobacco, weathered leaves, woody pulp, chocolate, roasted malts, and sweet biscuit--a veritable panoply the opposite of the can's artwork... sips a creamy, textured start and approaches a full-bodied finish... this eschews the usual flat cola/butter consistency, in a favor of a lactic, thickening, substantial mouthfeel... continuing its narrative, the flavor strikes with chocolate, tobacco leaf, caramel, Fuggels-driven grass and herb, light citrus, mint, and mild tea... a truly enjoyable beer that unfortunately may be panned due to its crude can--in fact, I bought it as a gag Christmas gift for my brother.... in his generosity, he left me one of them, and quite a regifting...

473 ml (16 oz) can bought at YATA in YoHo Mall, Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear amber copper colour. Gusher alert! Five finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet Brown malt, with moderate roastyness, strong caramel, sticky toffee, rich chocolate, strong raisins, dark fruits, strong cream, citrus, waffles, fruit cakes, Cola, floral, strong molasses, spices, biscuits and grass. Very nice!

Taste: Medium sweet Brown malt, with very strong roasted coffee, dark chocolates, burnt toast, caramel, Cola, floral, fair molasses, spices, biscuits, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Quite slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good dark maltyness in a slightly runny but solid background. Some oat smoothness come through but mostly the fine taste of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and burnt toast which shine here, complimented by very hoppy citrus. Flowery with moderate sweetness, spicy biscuity with strong lemon to round. Crafty!

Hoppiness: Citrus, floral, spices, and grass in nose. Floral, spices, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - hops and burnt malt- is quite strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet roasted coffee malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Lemony chocolate and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its rich and complex aroma of chocolate malt and citrusy hops make all the right noise off the start, but it was the immense roast coffee and hoppy Cascade taste that truly impress. Not too sweet, and even with lesser oats to perk up the palate this one is a joy from start to end. A real gem!

16floz can, no date, $3.50 single, pint glass. It's brown with clarity, a tan head, and an exceptional toasted nutty aroma. Sessionable, leans toward the dry side as far as browns. Taste follows very similarly to the aroma. Although it is only merely good - toasted bread and dry roasted nuts. A name and label to avoid buying, but good.
