COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Brown Dog has been cited as a classic example of the American Brown Ale style of beer. Compared to a typical English Brown Ale, Old Brown Dog is fuller-bodied and more strongly hopped.
Old Brown Dog has been around for many years. It was first brewed in 1988 at the Northampton Brewery. In 1989 it won a silver medal in its category (American Brown Ale) at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. It has since been retired from competition but enjoys love and respect from people all over the world.

Taste is caramel, burnt sugar, almond essence and hints of chocolate, cola nut and grains. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but it tastes kinda stale somehow.

I had rather high hopes for this. I love a good brown ale, the unsung hero of craft beer, I wish I could find good ones more often. Now this being a Smuttynose beer, I assumed great things. But I really dont think this lived up to its potential. Slight coffee or nut smell, it didnt deliver all that much in the ways of taste. At 6.5 ABV I would have thought so, but there was a very watery flavour obscuring what else was here, a subdued flavour of nuts, toffee, preserved prunes and day old coffee. Had that watery flavour not been there, Im quite sure I would have been far more pleased.
