Bellaire Brown is a full-flavored brown ale that derives sweet caramel and toasted qualities from four different kinds of malt and specialty grains. Select hop varieties create an enticing aroma and dry finish. Bellaire Brown is very dark and rich, which makes it hard to classify as a brown, but it is certainly considered a delicious masterpiece.

Bellaire Brown was originally created to appeal to people who enjoyed drinking coffee, and to beer drinkers who are not interested in hoppy options. When Joe Short was creating the Bellaire Brown recipe, he desired a beer that was meatier and burlier than most browns. Bellaire Brown is a great gate-way beer for drinkers to be introduced to darker beer varieties.

In the bottle from Holland MI. This pours brown with a very thin white head. Nice chocholate aroma with a splash of chicory. Slightly thin in body with a nice sweetness framing the chocolate notes. Very drinkable session beer.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Wow, a very solid nutty lightly roasted flavor with a smooth finish on this one! Dark brown with faint head, but I can’t really get much off the aroma. Still, the taste was very solid and a very enjoyable session beer.

12oz bottle courtesy of dmschefke. Pours a deep tobacco brown with very little head. Aroma of lightly roasted nut with a good backing of cola and maple. Also pick up some hints of clove-tobacco notes. Light body with tight carbonation. Medium to light roasted sweet maltiness with mild nut flavor going on with some hints of cola, maple and caramel. Nothing surprising or complex here, but a very nice and drinkable Brown ale.
