Notes/Commercial Description:
his is named after a song that sparked the idea to make this ale. Brown ales seem to be there, but not really there, do you know what I mean? Well that won't be the mistake with Wynona! Voodooed out this style and add more that's what we say. Hoppy and smooth hints of chocolate and tons of brown malt to let you know it's there. Try the brown, You'll be Happy You Did!!

I took this Big Brown Beer & I stuck it up in the air, I said sure do love this Big Brown Beer & I wish I did have a pair.

A- Well It's Beaver Brown of course.

S- Smells like Seven Layers, (it'd go good with TacoBell) some nice Hops on the nose.

T- It's like a normal Brown ale on steroids, you can taste the malty backbone but the hops are all over this too.

M- Creammmmyyyy

O- Great Beer, only problem was it went too fast!

The Rib & Chop House in town has this on tap, it's my go to beer to have with Steak.
Drank this with Rex, Lou & his old baboon...

Drink it,
It's Good,
Pappy Says So!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a - a deep, dark mahogany color that upon the initial pour has a thicker looking head that vanishes quickly leaving a light lacey after affect

s - coco and brown sugar [can it be?]...Malty, caramel, sweetness....if only all browns could smell this scrumptious.

t - wow. Good stuff! Coco powder, toffee, chocolate covered nutty goodness...This is a brown Ale I could get used to [if I could get more...] damn....

m - lighter to medium bodied, sort of evaporates into your palate leaving a pleasant memory behind....even somewhat of a smoky after affect?

o - a Great Brown ale... One I would definitely drink again. And a again.

Pours a dark brown. Medium sized dense persistent off-white head. Mild malty smell. A little chocolate and some sweetness in the nose. Taste is mostly toasted malt. Some chocolate notes again. Fairly low sweetness. Just a little herbal hop flavor. Some bitterness throughout from the hops and maybe some roasted malt. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel but not too heavy. Extremely drinkable. Pretty good stuff overall.

A: The beer is cloudy dark amber in color and poured with a quarter finger high head that died down but left a thin layer of bubbles consistently covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of chocolate and dark malts in the nose.
T: The overall taste is very similar to the smell and has also has some hints of toffee.
There are some metallic flavors in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This is an easy drinking brown ale that would make a good accompaniment to food, particularly a burger.

Poured from a 22Oz bomber into a schooner.

A: Pours a deep mahogany with red highlights when held to the light. Head is tan, viscous and long lasting.

S: Malty, roasty, caramel, slight bit of dark fruit, hops

T: Nice. A good balance between the malts, the caramel, the roastiness and the bitterness which appears last.

M: Nice medium body. Very creamy feeling. No carbonation sting but you know it is carbonated.

O: A very enjoyable beer. A good representation of the style. Would pair very nicely with a beef stew and some sharp cheddar cheese.
