Nice brown ale, not too bad. Very dark with a tan head, and has a chocolaty aroma, nutty taste also. Good Brew.

Black body with tan head, nothing unusual. Smells of malt, chocolate and coffee. Not very good on the tongue, taste is boring and unimaginative: nuts and chocolate. After is slightly sweet chocolate. Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchase at New World Brewery in Ybor City, Tampa, FL.

Thank you to DrunkAsASkunk for this one. Pours deep dark brown,with a medium off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, corn flakes, almonds, cabernet, hops, and slight prunes. Tastes malty, with hints of brown sugar, toffee, almonds, caramel, and slight Coca-cola. Nice, smooth medium-bodied finish. I haven’t had a bad California beer yet.

This beer is the greatest. What can I say? It’s the nectar of the gods. Also, if some restaurants/bars have the large bottle and it just keeps on giving. It has a nice subtle scent. The appearance is quite dark, however the beer goes down surprisingly light. I have found my beer. I have been drinking Downtown Browns for over five years now. I could never pass on this one.

Brown, tan dark leather color. Floral nose, slightly malty. Burnt wood, bitter, coffee flavor. Poorly roasted malts. Thin.

Pours deep brown with a thin off white head. It has a nose that is nutty and roasted, and a flavor of roasted hazelnut and malt. Very little bitterness from hops. All in all average.

Deep brown in color. Lots of roasty aromas. Flavor is roasted with a sweetness to it that makes you come back for more. A little under-bittered but a fine beer.

Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Sweet brown sugar aroma which is faithful to the style. Yum. Mildly hazy amber color with an off-white head. Light, easy drinking. Sweet, not too complex. Well-done brown that is enjoyable to drink.

(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewfest. Deep brown-red body and a medium, almond-coloured head. Nice malty nose that doesn’t carry-over to the flavour. Average brown.
