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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is exactly what you’d expect, a dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and rich caramel malts. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate and light coffee flavors. I generally don’t care for coffee flavors, but they are pretty subtle in this one. Not my favorite, but I don’t hate it.

Aroma isn’t bad pretty much traditional brown ale. Flavor is more basic. Mostly medium dark malt and a hint of traditional brown ale characteristics and sweet.

Let syrlig, meget chokolade i smagen. Dejlig frisk i det, sammen med den lidt mere fyldige brown ale stil, er en rigtig fin blanding. Skulle der være noget negativt, så må det være at det syrlige er lidt for fremtrædende.

Draft. Pours dark brown with tan head that dissipates quickly; some lacing. Nose of bready malt, chocolate malt, and some caramel notes. Chocolate malt with caramel notes upfront. Some bitterness in the finish. Chocolatier than other brown ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared by Kyle at Final Gravity. Pours medium brown with a decent beige head and a roasted chocolate aroma. There is a medium-bodied roasted malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

Aroma is very nutty malts, toffee and slight sweetness. The flavor is nutty malts, toffee, light berries/fruit and a slightly sweet/tart finish. Old school brown ale, well-made.

Pours a dark cola brown with a thin white ring. Light carbonation with some lacing. Pleasant roasted nut and malts aroma. Thin to medium body. Nice roasted nut taste. Flavors aren’t very bold. Smooth finish with some lingering aftertaste. Pretty enjoyable but not great.
