This is probably the best brown Ive had. A flavorful brew, it would certainly be worth drinking all winter long. Odd that they dont have separate ratings for the two styles.

Poured into a 12oz. Glass. Also enjoyed from the bottle. Very nice aroma, sweet smelling. Color is very nice for a Brown ale. Flavour is caramel, chocolate, and very full bodied. Overall a fantastic winter beer that I will enjoy over and over again.

Good chocolate color with a rich, thick head. The hops were just enough to give the beer a subtle spiciness to it. finished well.

355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Caramel roasted malt aroma is very nice. Dark brown tea colour with a good sized tan head. Full flavoured with a strong body even though the beer is a bit thin in the mouth. Vanilla flavours with a rich creamy mouthfeel.

From Cervezalandia. In Teku glass. Playing Blackwell Epiphany. Some nuttyness with a hearthwarming alcoholic feeling that makes it pretty pleasant. Good looking aspect.

joet (2600) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 12, 2002
Soft resinous, pine and herbs blend deep rich roasty, smokey notes more coffee and wood than bitter cocoa. Creamy, foam-topped, and easy light medium body SPN 24. Lasting bitter finish with touches of roast. Easy drinking with herbal suggestions of spearmint in the finish. Very nice. Another tasty specimen from Lost Coast, one of my favorite brewery visits ever.

(12oz bottle) Medium beige head atop very dark ruby body. Aroma is medium sweet, raisin, caramel, chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, caramel, light raisin. Creamy medium body that makes this beer wonderfully drinkable. Quite a treat!

Loved this beer. Dark, foamy, chocolatey, with just enough hops to keep it interesting. Kind of a molasseslike finish.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 Lost Coast brewery is a master of the style, showing just what can be done with a brown ale. Deep brown, creamy head. Aroma was an unusual but inviting mix of chocolate and flowers. Flavor was an excellent, balanced blend of nuttiness, chocolate, touch of coffee, dark fruits, and floral hops. Really well done here. RERATE: 2/20/08 - Notes virtually identical, noted some additional dark fruit in the aroma. Scores the same, nice to see that this is just as solid as I first found it to be.

this ia a wonderfully delectable winter ale not too far from the flavor explosion that is embodied in Lost Coasts fantastic 8-ball stout
