355ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of coffee, dark bread and caramel. The taste is smoky, malty, bready and a bit earthy. The carbonation is medium, and the bitterness is very low. Enjoyed it, and would happily have it again.

Dark pour with really thick lacing on an off white head. Nice touch of maltiness that was balanced nicely. Enjoyed on draft at the brew pub.

I love a good brown and this one is pretty solid. Sweet and malty, some nice toffee and caramel. I little earthy. Weak aroma. Strong offering.

Bonfire Brown shows that Brown Ales can be mellow without being boring. This ale pours dark, nutty brown. The nose is faintly smoky and toffee-like. Chocolate, toast, and caramel flavors finished by tea-like hops. Mild, medium-bodied feel. This one deserves more recognition.
