Named for the one and only Phil Brown. Brewed for his 75th birthday in 2009 and on tap ever since. We use peat smoked malt in this beer for our own little spin and to honor Mr. Brown's heritage. Thank you Phil!

A: Pours a mahogany color with 2+ fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that last for a good while

S: Malty and slightly nutty up front, with hints of smoke in the back. Some earthy hops also come through and provide a nice balance

T: Starts off with a bit of caramel, nut, and toffee notes from the malt, with hints of sweetness and brown bread. Smoke comes through lightly as an undertone and makes it very interesting. Finishes with lingering light smoke and earthy tones

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: The smoked malts make for a nice and interesting take on a brown. It comes across a little salty and makes you want to drink more. Very solid and quite an easy drinker for a cold fall or winter day. Definitely another solid brew from MW

16 oz can was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a dark brown amber color with a little vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Roasted coffee, toasted, chocolate, nutty, caramel, toffee, earthy, and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with light bitterness in the rear. Nice balanced of flavors too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty solid brown ale. Next time in Maine, I look forward to grabbing more of these.

This beer was a red/brown color with a medium-sized tan head. There was a fair amount of lace.

A smoky/peaty aroma. Sweet.

It tasted like smoky maple syrup, with some late piney hops.

This was a fun beer. Nice balance between the malt and the hops.

On tap at Novare Res, thanks Matt for helping me find this place.
Comes to my table on the deck a dark reddish brown without much of a head before I set my nose atop it. Smells of caramel brown sugar and a hint of chocolate with a solid hit of smokey campfire. Lightly nutty flavor with darker sugars and caramel and a nice but never overpowering level of smoke. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Nice smokey brown ale.
