Shawn and Co. are incapable of creating flawed beers. This is another perfect example of its style, thick and rich in the manner of a stout, like a triple-C malt-heavy liquid caramel infusion. Dont listen to me, just find one & drink it : )

Not so much my style, but will give it a shot. Dark cola pour with a tan fluffy head. Aroma on nuts, roasted malts, toast, and earthy hops. Taste is caramel malts, roasted toffee, almond nuts, and doughy bread. Thin to medium body. Easy drinking. Good for the style!

JBPortland (1514) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2016
500ml bottle pour dark almost opaque brown black with finger of head and some faint light edges. Great brown ale, my favorite brown ale, drinks like a lot of other brewery "stouts". Also close in profile to a porter, very nice nutty chocolate and light roast, grain, and crust, toast, coffee and walnuts, balanced bitterness, earthy, refined and delightful.

La Belle George nous prsente une couleur presque noire, intressant poiur une brown ale, avec trs peu deffervescence, et enfin un petit collet. Au nez, on sent beaucoup le malt torrfi, la mlasse, caramel et enfin le sirop drable vermontois (je prsume!). Le got en bouche est trs fidle au nez, avec laspect sirupeux qui domine. Au final, cette brown ale remet en question notre dfinition dune brown ale standard, pour le mieux. Excessivement bien fait. Bravo.

Brown ale isnt my favorite style but a friend mentioned that I should try it if I find it. Well it was certainly the best brown ale that Ive ever had. On tap at the Farmhouse in Burlington. Pours and opaque dark brown with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, brown sugar, milk chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, brown sugar ending balanced with a touch of licorice and sweetness. Medium in body with average carbonation. Yum!

With Zach at the Pony Bar in midtown Manhattan , on a late Sunday night, pours a brown color with a brown Java head. Nose is light cocoa and malt with some Java. Taste is mocha Java with a nice confluence of malt and hops. Very drinkable as it smoothly bathes the palate . Finishes on the same tasting notes. A great brown ale, perfectly done . Quaff Score 9 / 10
