A - Dark brown, with a slight transparency at the edge, a small, light tan head that reduces quickly to a ring, with significant lacing.

S - Bitter roast, a bit of char, a touch of hop, but mostly toasted grains.

T - As promised by the nose, with well-rounded roasted flavor that comes across as dark bread that has been toasted, closing toward a mingled hop bitterness and sweet molasses bread flavors.

M - Moderately carbonated, smooth, somewhat light for the style, but just lush enough to satisfy.

O - I'm a sucker for a good brown, and this qualifies. Tasty and drinkable, with just enough bite.

Mr. Brown, an "imperial" brown ale pours with a very thin head, light foam after dying down, with little lacing. Smell is of rye, chocolate, medium roasted earthy malts, and spicy hops. Taste is solid with a rye like character, chocolate and light caramel notes up front, and a spicy hop taste that is more towards the bitter side of a typical porter on the finish. Decent mouthfeel, silky but bracing at the same time. Overall a decent porter, although reminds me more of a rye porter. Not the best I have tried, but a good middle of the road style beer. The hops throw myself off, but for a hop head it is a good one.

a perfect taste!

I've been getting growlers of this for over a year now & it's never disappointing.

Lafayette may be famous for Axl Rose and Shannon Hoon but Mr.Brown is also a rock star!

L - brown (almost black) with smallish head that drops quick.

S - Malty smell with some alcohol and hops...you are not overwhelmed at all by the 7.00% ABV.

T - what hits you first & in what order? Coffee,malt, caramel, toffee, roast ,hops, earthy, sweet roasted flavor and then don't forget our Indiana water!

M - Medium mouth-feel as if with a caramel/very slight coffee like finish.

A unique american brown ale that seems to almost want to be a porter. The malt/hops mix make it perfect. I really dig this one in the winter...but anytime is nice too!

Also,going there on Wednesdays and getting a $2 off growler for this beer always puts you in a great mood...(in bottles,it also rocks!& like "mound builder",the label/artwork are very cool)...& the latest issue of "Beer Advocate" is always there on the counter to read while waiting on the growler...

Cheers!

Dark, rich, moderately thick pour with average light tan head, some lacing. Notes of cocoa, light roast coffee and piney hops hit the nose. Taste is like a marriage between a rich porter and a black IPA; roastiness, mild tannins, coffee beans and raisins overplayed with resinous, slightly citrusy hops. Silky mouthfeel with lingering hop bitterness; no acrid or sharp notes. Relatively smooth and very drinkable...could double as a dangerous session beer.
