Decently malty flavor, overall not a bad brown ale and a pretty good offering from Brau Brothers. CanIHave4Beers (4273) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Pours a beautiful reddish brown color with a very small well retained head. The aroma is fruity and very nutty with a bit of toffee and leaf rot with just a tad hint of chlorine. The flavor is strong with molasses up front but this gives way to all sorts of pleasantries like cocoa and vanilla, nuttiness and roastiness.... just tons of malt flavor without being really sweet at all. The beer is moderately bitter but really well balanced.
Just the best Brau Brothers beer I’ve had yet, the best one by a mile. portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tight kahki head that fades. Aroma is good roasted malt and some plesant coffee scents and maple. Taste is nice and roasted malt along with some funky sweet maple. Palate is medium feel with a mellow carbonation and finishes dry. This is one of the tastier Brau Brothers I have had. Good stuff. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JAN 9, 2011
This is a great brown ale. Nutty, chocolate taste with a hint of raspberry. Damn good brew. I have yet to be let down by a brau brother beer. nuplastikk (6635) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Deep burgundy-brown color. Thin, oily head. Fuggles and sweet specialty malt aroma. A pretty well done, complex, American Brown ale. Sweet and malty, not unlike a good Scotch ale at times, but the oats make it quite Stout-reminiscent. Throw in the pleasantly mellow raspberry tones at the end and you have quite an interesting beer. Toasty nut notes as well. I get a nice bitterness in the aroma, but the malt really dominates, soft carbonation, true to style I suppose. Worth seeking out.

Dark brown colored body with a light tan head. The nose is rich caramel with hints of milk chocolate. There is also some leather along with a little bit of oranges. The taste is fairly dry with some leather and a little bit of apples core. There is also a little bit of dirt in the finish. Decent. SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
Thanks to Deliriumfest for this one in a trade!
A-Completely transparent chestnut brown colored body. Pours with an approximately 2 finger foamy off-white head. Head eventually fades completely. No lacing left behind in the glass.
S-Nose has a very sweet, sticky nose of caramel and toffee, behind this is a hint of nuttiness.
T-Initial flavor of sweet caramel and toffee. These flavors intensify for the finish and add a hint of roasted nuttiness. Flavor is clean otherwise.
P-Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight, drinkable body. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.
O- This is a nice English Brown Ale. I haven’t had an English Brown in awhile and it was nice to revisit the style. This brew is very sweet and has a strong flavor. It would be perfect for making bread with. Wouldn’t mind having this again.
