COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hub of the village
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.

Draft @ Shorts: Pours a muddy brown with a minimal tan head. Nose is primarily rich and nutty, notes of baker’s chocolate and burnt caramel are apparent. Nice, full body...flavor is silky, chocolate malt with the nutty aspects showing themselves on the finish. Good brew

12oz bottle acquired in trade. Initially poured all head. Settled into a medium and clear brown color. Off white head. Aromas of roastiness, some chocolate, in the background, and a pile of freshly raked leaves. Tastes of chocolate, roast, caramel, and bready.

Surprised I didn’t already rate this. Pours a clear brown body with a thin, lasting head. Mild flavor of sweet malts with nutty toffee. Simple but good.

Solid, if unremarkable, brown ale. Roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, with a faint hint of cherries. Light hops on the finish. Drinkable.

Kind of a strong nose of Cascade hops for a brown ale. Starts off sweet then surrenders to a woody flavor that eventually morphs into a very creamy and slightly brown sugared land slide. Awesome.

3.5
j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle courtesy of my secret santa… whose ID is still unknown. Pours a lightly hazed and somewhat murky brown with a large dark beige head. Aromas of light bitter cocoa, malt, toast and roast. Medium bodied, nice big malt with a good amount of roast, but not overpowering. Chocolate, slight vanilla with almost a touch of wood. Finishes up with a light bitterness, subtle chocolate overtones and a light roasty sweetness.

3.7
Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of earth, some mild chocolate, toasty. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, sweet citrus, light cherries. Enjoyable and unusual.

ogorir (3) - Northport, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2010 does not count
very solid dinner beer. slightly sweet, big malt, medium chocolate, not too hoppy. long, mild finish that just makes you think of the word ’brown.’

2.8
SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2010
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.

3.3
SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours brown with red highlights and a foamy beige head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, with a slight burnt note. Some kind of weird burnt bready, doughy note that was a little odd, but otherwise pretty tasty. decent session beer.
