S - sweet malt, caramel, a hint of coffee, no alcohol on the nose
T - caramel and malt up front, not too sweet, some bitterness from the hops in the finish
M - nice and thick, very smooth, no real hint of alcohol

Dark reddish brown color, long lasting tan foam on the surface. Random spotty lacing.
Sweet and complex aroma, the maple syrup definitely makes itself known. Brown sugar and oatmeal raisin cookies come to mind also.
Creamy smooth feel, some lactose in there possibly. Dry finish with a slight bitterness. Husky toasted grains and multigrain bread, light dried fruit and woody notes, mellow and flavorful. For a brown ale, this is really tasty. Easily sessionable, and very surprising that it's 8.0%. Pretty impressed with this tiny brewery's output so far.

4.25/5 rDev +7.3%
A - Cloudy, almost thick, brown with mahogany hues. Thin creamy tan head that lingers.
S - Maple syrup, sugar cookie, bready malts, caramel, brown sugar and molasses.
T - Bready grains, maple syrup, sweet up front followed by a lingering bitterness, raisins. Flavorful but light at the same time.
M - Light to medium and creamy. The creaminess makes it feel lighter than it is.
D - Complex but simple and easy drinking at the same time. Didn't read the label before I tried it and had to double check after tasting the maple syrup. Close tie between this and Spoose Joose as my favorite Black Husky beer.

Black Husky Big Buck Brown Ale
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Server lightly chilled.
A) A very deep dark brown. There was a little over a finger of light tan head. The head popped and fizzled away to a thin collar. Decent lacing.
S) Brown bread, toast, milk, sweetness that is a hint of brown sugar and maple syrup.
T) This has a creamy/lactose taste that melds nicely with roasted malt. You get a hint of the maple syrup in the sweetness. It is a bit woody, and has a little hops on the finish. The 8% ABV will sneak up on you, because it is very well hidden.
M) Medium bodied and very soft on the palate. Lightly carbonated and incredibly smooth. Nice aftertaste.
O) This is the second offering I've had from Black Husky Brewing, and I have to say that I have been very impressed. I'm not sure where Pembine, WI even is, but my fridge would be full of Black Husky beer if I lived near there. If you like brown ales, and can find this one, drink it.
