Malty aroma, with dark bread, hazelnut, chocolate and a molasses-like sweetness. Medium-dark brown color with slight head and lacing. Flavor is sweet and roasty up front then mingles with some light hop bitterness before finishing bready, sweet, malty and hoppy at once. Slightly bitter mouthfeel and light-bodied. Definitely easy drinking as intended, largely due to the low carbonation.

This brew came recommended from a friend, saying that it had a unique "peat" flavor. I was a little underwhelmed when I tasted it. I too picked up some wooden notes. Moderate roasted malt nose. Small bubble, off-white head, with virtually no lace. Head is mostly deteriorating. Dark reddish-brown body is somewhat murky. Moderately acidic, lightly bitter and softly carbonated. Finishes tinny. I like the self-proclaimed session label, but I'm not sure I'd want to drink this all night.

Roasty aroma and taste of caramel, choclate, molasses. Flavors came out even more as it warmed. A little watery.

Bottle. A deep brown color with a light brown foamy looking head. An understated roasted nutty and malty aroma. A surprising smoke flavor. Light body, smooth, and watery but very easy to drink. The aftertaste lets you know you had a malty beer.

Light hoppy and deep sweet malty aroma. Some chocolate and roasted barley in the malty flavor. Quite a bit of flavor for the alcohol content and it makes a great session ale. I would love the opportunity to sample this guy on handpump.

No discernible aroma, and the head could be fuller and creamier. The flavor is a touch nutty and is decent enough. A session brown ale.

Very complex - hard to describe flavor to this brew. Detect a little bit of a nutty, chocolate thing going on.

A mild brown ale, Brown Fox delivers an easy drink in a no-frills package. No real heavy aromas seemed to jump out, but there was bit of a mild hop fragrance. I found the mouthfeel to be a bit 'gritty'; something that I've observed in other Two Brothers' brews. In the flavor department this session ale had a medium malt taste. Enough hops were around to erase any sweetness and to give it a nice dry bitter on the back side. On the swallow there was just a slight bit of 'chocolate' flavor that provided a nice finish. As a stand alone ale Two Brothers was rather unremarkable; but, as a session ale I think it does it's job well.

This is a session ale, so i wasn't looking for any huge flavors, just a nice easy drinking ale and this delivered. Nice earthy brown color with medium head. A fairly malty aroma. The flavors were predominately a nutty/grain bread flavor with a bit of toffee tossed in. Very easy drinking although the body was a bit thin which is my beef with most of two brothers products. Still a nice session ale that I would love to try off of a cask.

3.7
VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 15, 2002
Burnished chestnut. Creamy tan head. Very light carbonation. Buttery aroma atop a layer of light roasted malts, caramel and hay. Immediately dry and malty. Light bodied. Roasted malt flavor, light grassy hop balance and a rich earthiness. Slightly on the watery side but the malt depth makes up for it, with a long and lingering flavor. Smooth and satisfying. Finishes fuller, dryly chocolatey with trace amounts of English yeast. This brew would be ideal on cask.
