Dont be fooled by this innocent beast. Handcrafted by the Bear Republic Brewing Team this Belgian Brown incorporates a trifecta of sugars including our homemade candied syrup. Wild and untamed this full bodied beer starts out sweet and finishes with notes of cloves and nutmeg. Enjoy in moderation; tread lightly!

Draft. A dark chestnut colored beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, yeast, wood, and wine. The flavor is sweet - a bit too sweet, with notes of malt, caramel, spices, nuts, yeast, and wood, leading to a dry spicy finish.

slowrunner77 (11476) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"i have to take issue with the "wild and untamed" portion of the brewers description. other than that, its pretty accurate. a darn good beer, wild or not, just not what i was expecting. great malty flavor and aroma, with just a hint of the wildness and spices promised. a dangerously drnkable brew for 9.5%. The Bears summer alternative to Blac Bear stout."

Strykzone (7181) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at The Stable. This is as big a brown ale as I can remember having. It looks quite distinctive with a big thick head on a dark caramel colored body. Aroma is sweet with brown sugar and caramel along with some fruit. Flavor is also quite sweet with lots of alcohol noted. Plenty of sugary caramel. Too high of an ABV is a drawback for me but lovers of bigger beers will enjoy this one.
