Bottle. Pours a light, well, brown, with a fair amount of yeast sediment and head. Nice, malty aroma, with strong notes of nuts and caramel. The flavor has similar notes, with some added hints of coffee and fruit, and a touch of hops. "Solid" comes to mind when describing this beer - itís very well-made and a great example of the style, but not particularly interesting.

Good solid fall beer. Leave the pumpkin this and the pumpkin that for the pumpkin heads and settle in with an original fall beer style. An excellent interpretation of a brown and an easy drinking one at that. A little bit hoppier and a little less maltier than a lot of browns makes this very smooth, though I would have preferred a lil more malt.

Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. This stuff is so easy to drink! Very nice hints of roasted malts, toffee, nutty and a mild sweetness. it sits so well on the palate. This is soooo good...I have been on such a brown ale and porter kick lately.

JohnC, jcalabre, does this guy KNOW who he is??? Well, heís one damn fine trader -- threw this in as an "extra." Very nice brown ale: brown (duh) mild, yet fairly complex (for the style) flavors that consisted of roasted malts, caramel, and nuts. Thanks, John!

I donít like brown ales. But this is the genius of Bellís - if you make nearly perfect product, how can someone not like it. A little richer and creamier than most brown, this is so beautiful in both the throat and mouth that it is bringing a tear to my eye! Enjoy!

Aroma is a little odd... a little too much piney hops and some earthy malt. Flavor is better balanced... starting out with nuts and roasted chocolate malt. Finishes with a light bitterness and dry maltiness.
