SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Draft: Poured a orange with white colored head. Aroma was nutty. Taste was a grainy and honey mess. Not sure how this is a brown ale. phaleslu (10743) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a coffee brown color with a moderate beige head that settles into a thick ring while lacing the glass. Notes of dry roasted malts, dark chocolate, honey, nuts, and tobacco. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, roasty, somewhat bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not sure this could qualify as a brown ale; it’s dark and more intense. brokensail (16660) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 27, 2016
On tap @ Petaluma Hills. Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Molasses bread and a lot of fruity esters. Far more roasted malt character than I would usually expect, or prefer, in a brown ale. Okay in some ways. A little thin and perhaps even a touch acidic for my tastes. Some cocoa/dark chocolate, burnt toast, and somewhat bitter on the finish.

Draft at source. Nose is burnt honey and dark bread. Deep brown color. Watery mouthfeel initially followed by a bread crust flavor. A touch thin. Leighton (22508) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours rich brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has some toasted bread, molasses, dried dark fruits, figs. Medium sweet flavor with toasted bread, light roast, earth, bitter leathery fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Bitter earth and burnt grass on the finish, light cocoa, toasted honey, burnt molasses. Not bad. VsXsV (4557) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2016
Draught at Petaluma Hills. Opaque almost black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, butter, caramel and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate and grain. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent, but not very brown ale like.
