COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future.
Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness.
For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

Rating #949 - February 3, 2014 - Beer 3 in the @coopwinespirits February discovery bag. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of pine, lemon, reminiscent of Anchor’s christmas a little. Taste is bold earthy malts, with a piney lemon sweetness, dominant roast malt, medium hop character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Impressive.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is caramel and toffee. Flavor had chocolate dark fruits and some sweet chocolate. Very sweet medium bodied beer. Decent beer.

From a bottle. The taste is nicely soft, sweet and malty. There’s some caramel there too.

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2014
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy red copper color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Sweet and caramel in aroma. Weak aroma. Juicy, sweet, touch of red currant in taste.

355ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Nice hoppy brown ale aroma. Nice full palate, smooth, gentle carbonation. Simple bready malts. Rather simple, drinkability high. Much better than an average US brown, like it.

Standard brown ale. Not very strongly flavored on its first impression, but it has a nice pleasant finish. Paradoxically, it is both rich and light.

curepute (141) - New York, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Mahogany in appearance, small off white head that dies down to a lacing. The nose reminds me of their Christmas beer, without the pine. Maple syrup and sweet malts. Taste starts out with a little hop bitterness and then the malts take over a bit, vanilla, syrup, toast. Finishes bitter. Not too bad for a brown.

zwartjesbier (28) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2014
bottle 33 cc. Pours a milky red- brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is light licorice/cough drop, though not as heavy tasting as is usual when there’s a licorice aroma. Some biscuit with a hint of citrus. taste is medium sweet with some light bitternes that lingers for some time. A full body with light carbonation. Kinda reminds me of some belgium dubbel beers but with lighter aroma and taste. Not a session beer but I could drink a few at one sitting

Psytron (2043) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Thanks for the "use opener" hint on the cap. It helped a lot. Smell of hops, spices. Dark brown colour with faint of red. Small beige head. Aroma of caramel, hops, some yeast and cocoa. Sugary finish. Very mixed flavours, but still nicely balanced. Some bitterness, medium sweet. Rich and lively carbon, light body.

A: Very dark brown, with small white head that’s tinted yellow. S: Strong malt, some caramel, some mild hops. T: Starts bittersweet with some malt and coffee, goes sweetish, a bit liquorice and sour ends bitter coffee, chocolate and some ash. Lingers for a while. M: Medium body. O: Quite a deep beer with many layers of taste.
