COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure the British introduced the Brown Ale way back in 17th century. It was light brown and sweet, and brewed exclusively with brown malt. Brewer Chad Pieper decided that this was a good foundation, but as Americans do, the style needed to be Americanized. It needed to be roasted, and malty, and it needed to be a little more bitter than the style that was an English second cousin to the mild ale.

Brown sugar aroma, dark brown pour. Thick and rich, hint of bitterness. Almost like a guiness. Easy drink ability

Draft. Pours a deep mahogany brown/raisin red with a lasting off white head. The perfect amount of roastyness, chocolate notes, and body.

12 OZ can at Fire on the Mountain. Beauty. Soft brown color. Great lasting head. Nose of nutty chocolate and a hint of honey. Well carbonated with a good chewy mouth feel. Chocolate, molasses and honey bunches of oats. Finished clean and dry with low residual sweetness. Could pass the three beer test.

Pours a deep reddish-brown with a nice, stable head. Nutty and roasty aromas. Bitterness gradually comes thru to play against the malt in the middle. Fairly clean finish, though a trace of bitterness and sweet, bready characters linger.

I was hesitant at buying a beer in a can, but was greatly surprised by the quality. A nice brown color with a nutty aroma. Just the right amount of bitter taste. A good beer.

A superb and fine Brown. Many times, I get too much hops, not enough malts, and some watery action. Not here. Story here is malts, malts, malts all the way. Good, lovely, and recommended.

onceblind (9442) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Chestnut/ruby brown with a decent sized head. Delightful aroma of chocolate infused with coffee grounds, with a dash of brown malt. Tasted like a prime example of a classy brown ale; sweet, chocolaty, malty, with a gentle touch of coffee on the finish. Fantastic for a style that sometimes disappoints.

4.2

12oz.Can. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Aroma is hyper chocolate and coffee flavors. Palate is slightly bitter and strong. Taste is of brown sugar, hops and roasted flavors. Overall, great tasting dark ale full of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
