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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized soapy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was toasty, woody and sweet with nut, cocoa and some vegetal malts. The flavor was sweet wood, nut, toasty malts, honey and bread. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

MaltOne (412) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2017
Very good – rich and full bodied. Big roasted malt aroma; dark notes of coffee and brown bread. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish-brown. Taste is sweet, slightly nutty, a hint of licorice. Finishes with a dark toast dryness. Palate is slightly chewy with a long finish. Overall, like a lighter stout; great cool weather ale.

Mahogany pour with light brown head. Bread, carmel, chocolate. Light bodied with light carbonation. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Very thin beer with no head or lacing . Dark brown color. Nutty bready aroma. Lightly carbonated. Toasted malty flavor. Finishes smooth. Lighter easy drinking brown ale.

Dark amber, bit reddish. Nose has burnt sugar, caramel and hops. Flavour has also some more hops, nice bitterness painted on this caramelly nutty canvas. Great brown, liking this.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2017
355ml bottle (Baltic Broken Bus Beer Bash @ RBESG2017) (4:4:4:2:7=2.1)
Dark, tan head. Gravy (could be "grainy", writing on a moving bus is hard, but better than writing on a stationary bus, n’est pas?) aroma, savoury. Full palate. Stale coffee in the taste, sweet. Powdery finish. Pretty shitty brown ale.

Noodle (24) - Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Nice brown ale. Malty and sweet, with a hint of smokiness. Could use slightly more bitterness and head is weak, but still a good beer.

Marduk (8628) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 4, 2017
330ml bottle (Grand Bus Tasting 2017). Clear brown color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Sweet, candy, husky and some roast in aroma. Husky, grainy, candy in taste. Fizzy carbonation. Dirty and yeasty in aftertaste. Why? Nope.

VamboladeTolly (2184) - Tartu, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2017
RBESG 2017 Bus Ride part 2, Latvia. Pours hazy brown. Aroma and taste, chocolate, sweetish, light roast. Medium body. OK brown ale.
