On draft. 4 ounce pour in mini-snifter.
Appearance: Deep brown with a thin, tight layer of foam.
Smell: Very malty. Part molasses, part toffee. Well… mostly molasses.
Taste: If brown was a flavor, this would be it. Very sweet with a faint, citrusy, lingering aftertaste. Not a lot of balance, but that’s not unusual for the style.
Mouthfeel: Thick and heavy.
Overall: Pretty good. I can’t put my finger on why I’m not real excited about it. There’s nothing specifically wrong with it; it just didn’t hit my mark today. Maybe if it was cooler outside.

Draft to 4oz snifter

App- Its a solid pour. A nice deep dark brown color with a good 1/2 finger of head to it. Good density and falls quickly. Not really a ton of lacing either.

Smell- It was okay. Kinda a thin malty brown ale note. I really got no BT in it. The warming of the beer opened I would call it a oaky, char, malt note.

Taste- It was a better than average brown ale but just didnt do anything for me. A little malty, a little charcoal flavors with a bit of a pinenut flavor IMO and none of the BT came through for me. I would think with some BT the ABV would be higher but got no bite or none of the chocolate finish as Ehammond1 suggested.

Mouth- It was a fairly standard body, even I say a bit thin. The carbonation was about the same as well. A bit thin and needed more oomph for me.

Drink- I liked it. What I wrote would suggest I didnt. Its just not as good as some other browns or even the Terrapin/Schmaltz I had at Haven after this.

On-tap at The Bruery, a blend of 80% Brown Ale and 20% Black Tuesday,

A: Pours brown with a soft white head with some solid lace.

S: Nice nutty nose with some dark chocolate, hint of peanut butter.

T: More straight up brown ale here, nuts and caramel malt, some pecan.

M: Medium-bodied, frothy, creamy, the BT adds a punch.

O: A nice brown ale in the end. I noticed some similarities in flavour with Nautical which is always good, just wish there was more BT influence.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with an off-white head. Nice roasted malt on the nose with some chocolate, faint vanilla, a light nuttiness, and some toast. Sweet toasted malt with a definite roastiness. Light chocolate note in the background, some nuttiness, and a hint of bitterness, banana, and vanilla.

On tap at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, hazelnuts, and a mild coffee aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.
