Pours a clear, medium brown color with a quickly attenuating, even. The aroma consists of dark roasted malt, notes of chocolate, and coffee acidity. The mouthfeel is magnificent. Perfect balance between the carbonation and creaminess perfectly accentuate the woody chocolate, ripe, dark fruit, and coffee acidity flavors. Neil loves this beer. So do I.

Poured bomber of Davy Brown into a glass:

A: Pours a medium brown that allows plenty of light through. Visible carbonation. This stuff looks just like rootbeer. Head is about a finger thick. Medium retention, very pronounced lacing.

S: This stuff smells very organic. Earthy comes to mind. Roasted malts persist.

T: Taste isn't very strong. Similar to the smell, it tastes very earthy with some hints of roasted malts. Pretty bitter. Ends on a boozy note.

M: Oily, with light carbonation. Kind of a wet finish.

O: Overall, I wasn't all that impressed with this one. There's definitely better stuff out there.

Davy Brown is a very solid brown ale that gives me everything I want when I order a brown. Nice rich roasted malt flavors with just a hint of a hop bite.

Looks like coca cola with a head. Smells a little nutty and a little cocoa.

Taste is less pronounced than the smell but much the same.

finishes smooth and good like a good brown should.

22oz bottle split two ways – standard pint glass
Notes from 10/19/13

A: Pours a deep dark chestnut brown with near opaqueness. Creamy half finger of persistent khaki tan froth. Mild dots and lazy lacing attempts made down the glass after each sip.

S: Smells of nutty toasted malts with a soft suggestion of chocolate. I am getting a touch of pine and spice hops in there as well.

T: Toasted bread with nutty grains and just a slight hint of chocolate noted. More spicy hops than pine here with a dash of earthy minerals. There is a moderate amount of perceived bitterness and the alcohol is almost completely masked. A decent Brown with nice toast flavors.

M: Lighter weighted body and just a hair on the watery thin side. Even carbonation and smooth texture. Light drying towards the finish. Very clean finale.

D: Another solid brew from Figueroa Mountain. Hard to get excited about this style but this one has some nice toasty qualities and good drinkable balance.
