Our Brown Ale gives a nod to the Northern English Brown style. However, since defeating the English in 1783, it is analogistic that the American version be stronger to reflect on England’s vanquishment. Gentleman’s Relish uses Maris Otter malt as the base, augmented with dark crystal and chocolate malts. Whole cone English hops are used throughout the boil, imparting their characteristic smooth bitterness. The beer is named after an Englishman’s favorite snack, an anchovy paste, typically eaten on toast.

Tasting notes: dark brown with a thick creamy head; chocolate-caramelly-nuttiness yields to a clean hoppy finish. It makes one almost wish that the English were still here to share a pint of this fine brew...almost.

Decent brown ale with a malty base. Hints of chocolate but with a more pronounced hop bitterness. Smooth with a nice weight but not too heavy. Some nuttiness typical of the style. Standard brown color.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Sampled at The Thirsty Growler. A bit rough for a brown, nutty roast aroma with light neutral hop character. Dark brown with slight haze and thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Grainy start, heavy roast and grist. Burlap with rye spice. Bitter finish and after with a hint of tobacco.

Better than decent brown ale. Pours dark with a nice sharp bitter bite at the end. Body is chocolate and caramel. Thick up front and gets milder through the sip.

Dark mahogany in color, light beige head, goes from Swiss cheesy to wispy. Aroma is deep, woody, nutty, leathery, notes of cigar smoke. Perfect body for the style, deep roasted maltiness, nuts, toffee, burnt chocolate ....lasting finish. I like the beer.

Tejas (994) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Nitro > Flying Saucer. Not sweet enough to be a brown. This is really a porter b/c of the color, little roastiness and dry palate. Reminds me of Fullers London Porter and that's not a bad thing.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Dark malts, molasses, earthy hops, and a bit of roast in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a solid body. The taste is bitter, with minor caramely sweetness concealing some fruity flavors. The finish leans dark and malty.

Originally rated on 8/2/14. Restrained aromas of sweet malts with some hints of piney hops, and chocolate notes. The body looked like watr that has been used to clean paint brushes all day, murkier than swamp water with a nice chewy head that left some pretty good lace. Flavors lean towards the dark crystal malts as it should but the hops come through on the back side, sweet faint chocolate and toasted notes. Overall i thought it was pretty good, not the best brown ale out there but its good enough that i would try it again.
