Pours pitch black with a nice white head and good lacing. Aroma is chocolate malt, nuts, and toast. The taste is nutty, slightly dry and sweet. Very balanced. Not too rich, not too thin, just about perfect. Delicious!

This is about as close to an English-style Brown as you can get without making a trip across the pond. Dark brown color; it takes on a reddish glow in direct light. Malty nose. Cocoa and hazelnut flavors followed by mild earthy, tea-like hops. Rich feel and low bitterness. Does AleSmith make any style of beer that isn’t worth drinking? Guess not.

Brown amber robe without foam.
Nose of coffee, smoke and a bit of hazelnut.
Light body with thin sparkling bubbles.
Finish is soft and a bit nutty.
Quite balanced and enjoyable, maybe a bit too watery for me.
Way more refined than the Rogue one, but the nut is also more discreet. Nie (117) - - MAY 30, 2017
