Smuttynose I friggin' hate you. You make in impossible to pick your best beer. This beer has an incredible pour. The color has a great copper glow in the low level bar light. The fragrance is good and the flavor is a incredible. While most beers that are amazing on the first beer and you can't see drinking more, this is not the case with Old Brown Dog. It is a staple of the darker beer diet.

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance –Pours a hazy deep copper, almost brown color. Upon pouring there is a fizzy off white head that initially fades fast to leave a persistent white foam head on the brew.
Smell – The aroma is overall very light. It consists of some roasted malt, a little bit of nuttiness and light caramel aroma.
Taste – The flavor starts out an interesting blend of darker fruits, a bready flavor, as well as some caramel sweetness. As the taste advances further some roasted and nut flavors come to the tongue. As the flavor advances to the end, the bready flavors begin to fade, but some of the fruit flavors get quite a bit stronger and in the end a nice lightly roasted and sweet flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer has a moderate amount of creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are quite nice for the roasted, dark fruit, nut and bready flavors and really enhance them.
Overall – The nice flavors, drinkability, and good smooth transitions of the brew make for a great one to go out and try (and try again).

A: dark, quite dark. looks fairly heavy, nice light tan head
S: malts dominate the smell, caramel and hints of vanilla
T: smooth and subtle, what i expect from a american brown. slightly sweet for my palate, typically but enjoyable none the less. notes of hazenut possibly.
M: heavy as i expected but not too much so. definitely silky smooth
O: enjoyable beer, probably would not have more than two in one setting but would defintely order it again.

I like this brown ale. The appearance is a ruddy brown which pours a quarter inch head. The nose is of sweet malty, dark fruit. The taste is malty with some dark fruit in the mix. The mouthfeel is medium. Overall this is a solid brown ale and gets better as it warms.
