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.

Pours a slightly hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is sweet caramel, buttered biscuits, maple syrup and very milt hops. Good effort!

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 My experience is limited in brown ales, but this one is good. I could see myself enjoying drinking one of these in the fall during a nice bonfire. It’s good.

Draft at Mad Mex in Pittsburgh. This was okay, not to bad on all accounts. A nice and easy brown that goes down easy and tasty.

cheap (6016) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2016
Industry tap. Dark like a yuengy. Nice brown beer smell. Comes across like a milder stout with just a tad of medicinal bitterness. A hair of co2 in there, but not much. Perhaps a little rude on the finish.

r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2016
Malty, caramel and cocoa. A hint of coffee with a smooth body and finish. Lightly hoppy. Very drinkable. One of the best I have had of the style.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 1, 2016
bottle to snifter. poured a medium cola brown color with off white head. the aroma is a mix of medium roasted malts and caramel. also got hints of coffee and chocolate. nothing surprising on that. the flavor though was a little different I thought for a basic brown ale. not bad not great just good. decent brown ale flavor nice roasted malts with the coffee and chocolate hints and then some nice hop action on the back end. overall decent and drinkable.

3.1
Scipio (1185) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours a very dark red with a full and long lasting white head. The aroma has earthy malts, coffee, nuts, and caramel. The taste is still malty and pretty close to the nose. There is caramel, coffee, earthy, and some mild fruity flavors. The aftertaste is quite short and is a caramel and coffee carbonation. Medium bodied and average in both texture and carbonation. Not bad, but kind of boring.
