COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown Ale at its best. Brewed with two-row, crystal, Gambrinus honey, and chocolate malt, and hopped with Cascade to balance towards the sweeter side. Enjoy it with your meal. Brown ales originated in England and were the staple ale of 17th century English taverns. They were usually brewed on site, or by a local widow or housewife. The Tavern model as community social, political, economic and judicial center of activity was repeated in colonial America, a tradition AleWerks supports.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. Bottle. 3.75 A: Deep brown-black color. Two fingers of frothy creamy beige head. Retention is about average and a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Big toastiness and nuttiness right off the start. Also some roastiness, chocolate, and a fairly powerful hop presence for the style. Floral and earthy hops. 3.25 T: Dry toastiness is the dominant flavor. Nuts underneath. Again theres notes of roasted malts, chocolate. Moderate hop bitterness. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and very smooth. 3.25 D: Good beer, but run of the mill. ★ 608 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 28, 2014
