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.

12 oz bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours a dark mahogany with a decent beige/tan head. Smells like nutty roasted malt. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Has that brown ale sour touch, with gritty roasted caramel. Possibly a bit smoky in the finish, or maybe a light stroke of coffee. Pretty good drink.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 22, 2010
Poured dark brown with lasting white head. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Tasted mostly of bitter hops but with notes of sweet caramel and toffee and dark fruits. Remained consistent throughout. Pretty heavy too. A decent beer all round.

A decent brown ale. Aroma of roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is very chocolatey with a coffee finish. Palate is very strong, lingering chocolate and coffee tastes. Very enjoyable beer.

BeerandBlues2 (13056) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Sampled at 4th NoVA Summer Brewfest. Pours hazy brown with a medium, fizzy light tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, toast), light hops (woody), and light esters (fruity) with notes of dates. Flavor is moderate malt and light bitter hops. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth and a sweet finish.

12oz bottle from the Jarretts. Light mahogany with a biege head. Roasted maltiness, dry, sweet caramel, pleasant. Mild body and moderate carbonation, malty, somewhat sweet, dry, toffee, fairly tasty finish which was surprising.

Roser (44) - Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Appearance- good looking, dark brown, opaque. Thin (weak) root beer colored head, disappeared fairly quick. Smell- malt, spice, chocolate. Taste- a little hop, bitter, gingerbread cookie. Mouthfeel- light to medium. Thin. Warm bourbon barrel kind of feel. Overall- a very solid, good beer. Recommendable. Ive always been a fan of Sam Smiths Nut Brown Ale, and I think this is better. Cheers all!
