Malty_MacHops' rating

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
First off, I most likely had a bad/old bottle. The label was just "Brown Ale" not the current "Ka-Bar Brown Ale" designator. Thus the slight sourness was likely abnormal. Malty aromas with notes of dark bread, brown sugar, and a touch of smoke. Deep, deep brown (bordering on black) with no head. Some of the malt characteristics, with a slight sourness akin to a Flanders Brown ale. Medium to medium light in body with a slightly tart finish.

From the bottle. The aroma is cherry, chicory, peat, caramel, and milk chocolate. Sweet and malty, with a light, balancing bitterness. Medium body, grainy, and chewy. This is a fun and interesting beer.

travita (4972) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle. The look is pretty dark, brown tinging almost to black in color, with a tan head. The smell is sourdough bread, malt, roast, pastries, sweet, and some fruit. Slightly off in the smell . Taste is more what I would expect. Roast, touch of fruit, cocoa, malt, decent stuff.

bnokk (526) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2016
APPEARANCE- deep brown with very foamy (almost frothy) head. NOSE- very little in the smeller Dept. FLAVOR- malty sweetness jumps right out at you when you open it. The nuttiness is indeed an undertone, but that doesnt really take away from the beer. Very nice use of bittering hops as I only get a hint of them at the very end, but I get the feeling theyre affecting the drink from.the sip through the finish

Pours brown with a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel and roast. Taste is sweet with very light bitters. Light bodied, smooth and almost but not quite creamy. Very solid brown ale.

Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is is all malts and roast. The taste is mild with some caramel, and a earthy note. It has a mild sweetness, but not overly sweet. There is a hint of booze in the taste. All around easy to drink and very good brown.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Light roasted malts, mild nuttiness. Caramel, syrupy sweet - overly so for the style. A bit undercarbonated; tastes like its slightly underfermented - low on alcohol, high on sugar.

Really nice with nuts and cstamel. A little more hops than usual. Just a tad thin. Modest head cola color on tap at major on bald head island.
