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. (792 characters)

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. (614 characters)

I wasn't impressed by Figueroa's hoppy options, but this is a lovely brown. The malt character spans the distance between roasted barley, with a hint of smoky cocoa, to toffee and dark bread, with a caramel finish. Though one quibble: the aroma doesn't stack up to the flavor's complexity. It's not that heavy, medium weight, and an excellent example of how to make a malt-forward beer. (386 characters)

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. (342 characters)
