3.56/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Dark brown with a golden cast. Looks nice enough in the big Duvel tulip with a very nice foam-up on every pour. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel.

There is a distinct chocolate aroma, though they don't brag about any additive flavorings. Even a touch of Mexican cocoa with the cinnamon. A bitterish rasp makes it all go down easier. Brewery says this is 29 IBUs with Northern Brewer and Cascade hops. A little thin and sharp, with a hint of butter and nuts, but certainly more flavorful than the run of the litter with this style. Bitter aftertaste of old coffee and walnut skins.

This brewery seems to be out of the gate and running. We'll see how they do, but this is really a decent Brown Ale. A credit to its race, as they used to say. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's in San Diego.

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.
