COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fall is here, friends! Grab your sweaters. As the temperature drops, we here at the brewery are reaching for heartier, darker beers and think you should too. Hometown Double Brown is brewed in tribute to Henniker: a robust brown ale sturdy enough to stand up to the chilly nights and shortening days. Enjoy this beer with roast lamb leg, pot pie, and leaf peeping!

From my brother: well this is old but it is a brown ale so it ahould probably be fine. Pours reddish brown with a beige head. Looks pretty nice actually. Taste is nutty with loads of caramel. Actually pretty good. I was impressed. Makes a brown ale pretty interesting.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a rugged semi-dark brown color with a nice finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Stringy lace. The aroma centers around roasty nuts, sweet toffee malts and a light breadiness. Some dry roastiness to earthy bitter to spicy hoppiness rounds it all out. The flavor is a balance of roast to sweet to earthiness. Breadiness seems to slide further into the background. Roasty to earthy aftertaste. Slim dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one has a light to medium body with a decent sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. Overall, nice English styled brown ale that I would have again.

Had it from draft at RRT in September 2016. Nice and dark with a thick taste and dark color. A little aftertaste gives it some bite and helps it be a "double" ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Double brown? More like double chocolate fudge. Seems totally weird to me that in a part of the country that doesn’t even get all that hot they haven’t yet realized that dark beers don’t require freezing temperatures to go down easy.

trade with mcox90 thanks!-22oz bottle-retaining tan head with trailing lace-dk copper/brown. A-sweet caramel/roasty-med malt, slight earthy. T-sweet caramel/roasty-med malt, slight earthy/minty hops. The hops keeps this from being cloying, but its still a sweet, malty beer. Next time John, remember to have a brownie or some fudge nearby. Oh, I have a few Hershey kisses…that works :-)

Pours brown amber with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with coffee. Flavor is sweet caramel malt followed with coffee, vanilla, and brown sugar. Finishes with roasted coffee bitter hops.

GIJOE (1260) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours dark brown with a hint of ruby red through the lights. Frothy, tan head that lingers a while. Some lacing. Nose is caramel and malt with some light chocolate notes. Taste is mildly bitter on a strong backbone of malty sweetness. Full bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Quite nice.

$6.99 for the 650 mL bottle purchased from Cigarette City earlier this evening. To oversized snifter, it pours a Tyrian purple-tinted mahogany dark brown with which a frothy beige head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of butterscotch, pipe tobacco, applewood-smoked bacon, pecans, vanilla extract, carob, paper pulp, London yeast, cold press coffee, American noble hops, and allspice. Tastes the same with the addition of baking chocolate, charcoal, chocolate soy milk, agave syrup, and some roast. Alcohol well hidden. Chewy and insanely drinkable. This might very well be my favorite New England brown ale. I’d easily buy this over Hill Farmstead’s George.

22 oz. bottle purchased at the former Village Market in Somersworth, NH. Yep, the color is brown, thin lasting head in a shaker glass. Aroma is roasted nuts, caramel, hints of chocolate and mild earthy soil.

Flavor is spot on the aroma with a thicker body for the style, displaying a silky/ creamy/ velvet feeling over the tongue. Also shows a light hop character toward the finish. This hop is needed and a welcome addition, really for a ordinary brown ale, this is really nice drinking.

Bomber from Beverage King. Pours out a frothy dark brown color. Very nice looking brew. Aroma and flavors are deep and roasty. Well balanced. Not overly sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. nice
