Pours brown with thick tan head that dissipates quickly and some lace. Aroma is roast malts. Taste roast malt, light cocoa, some bitterness, nutty medium body, sticky finish
The nose is sweet and breadth and a little heavy. The first taste is bubbly and plays with the roof of my mouth. The taste doesn’t last long it has a soft finish. It is simple and it has a slight bitterness at the end. It’s an easy drinking Ale and I would probably buy it again.

Had at Big Daddy's in Helen. Okay, not really in to Americanizing a brown ale.

Can ordered at Sheridan Room with commonshawn. Standard brown cola color. Minimal head. Aroma is muted malt and cereal. Taste has light hints of toffee and caramel letting the malts run the show like you would expect. Light, thin body. Toasted grains playing a role especially at the end. Very unexciting beer in general. Fits the style. Bell's best brown is still just a brown ale. ttoadee (1588) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Clear light brown, thin tan head. Nose is malt and mild coco. Middle is baking chocolate, roasted grain, hint of cherry, warm well kilned malt. Finish shows a woody bitterness that really wraps it up nicely. randy1969 (82) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2017
The aroma is chocolate, bready malt, with a smidge of coffee. This one pours a red, dark brown with a tan head. Warm malty taste with light sweetness. Light to medium body. Creamy texture with soft carbonation and a soft, crisp and dry finish.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet, nutty, and toasty, with low bitterness, and a nice malty finish. Good stuff. Chachy (16) - - OCT 27, 2017
It made my list of top 5 brown ales. Good flavor and after taste.

Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, earthy river water. Taste is roasted malts, twigs. Unfortunately not the Best Brown Ale (as advertised) which is disappointing coming from Bell's (but honestly expected since, well, it's a Brown Ale). kleighlamping (3) - - OCT 19, 2017 does not count
Nice smooth taste. Nice smooth toasty taste with hints of chocolate that hit on the back of the throat.

16floz can, COD: 08.09.2017, $7 for a four-pack. Appears a medium-brown color with a half-finger of head. This is a toasted toffee ale, although not as sweet as the confectionery staple. Just a solid, mild mannered brown ale.
