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.

3.84/5 rDev +1.1%
a: its a mix of dark dark purple and dark ruby red. only a hint of brown in the center of the glass. 2 finger white solid head
s: sweet caramel malts, raisins, plums, a nice toasted chestnut aroma. nose finishes with a nice clove spice and a hint of grass. a little alcohol in here as well
t: there is a much bigger roasted malt in the flavor than i picked up on in the aroma. also a nice amount of chocolate - milk & bittersweet. there is just the slightest hint of plums, which is a nice addition. all the rounded out and by a nice mellow chestnuty flavor. as in the nose, the very faintest hint of alcohol. there is some bitterness and astringency at the back of the tongue which lingers a little bit - i could do without this
m: its a creamy medium mouthfeel. not much carbonation, but not flat
o: liked this more than i expected to. i enjoy the chestnut flavors i'm perceiving in here. my biggest problem is the lingering bitterness and astringency at the back of the tongue that i didn't really taste until the aftertaste. still though, worth a try

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.
