Was very happy to see this (the only obscure-enough beer on a quite extensive list) available while out at lunch.
Ah. So this is an English brown ale? Well then, that kicks it up a notch even further.
Even though this beer came out extremely cold - way, way too cold - it still was able to exhibit some very nice and smooth characteristics. Thankfully, it was an imperial pint, so I was able to try some of it at a more appropriate temperature. Great characteristics. Subtle and smooth and delicate. The only downside is that it was a bit thin and I certainly could have dealt with a longer lasting flavor profile. However, who cares. This is an excellent beer.
If this is indicative of what Helltown can do, then they are dead center on my radar from here on out.

Appears a ruby bronw hue with a light tan head, leaves behind tiny flecks. Poured at Piper's Pub at the perfect serving temp. Aroma has roasted malts with floral herbal hop presence, but mainly a nice caramelized sugar in the base malt. So far, an excellent representative for new craft breweries in Western PA. Flavor brings out malts with caramelized sugars blended well with a roasted nut character and herbal hop notes that collide beautifully. Best brown ale I've had in quite sometime definitely a winner. Motuhfeel is medium bodied with even carbonation slick hop oils nothing cloying easy drinking Helltown ales. Overall the type of beer I could drink in number excellent brown ale from Mt. Pleasant, PA.

Helltown Mischievous Brown Ale
Pours a dark brown color, decent clarity, absolutely no head. Carbonation bubbles are noticeable. Smells of roasted, sweet malt. In the taste, there is a nice nutty maltyness. Well balanced, with a modest bitterness and little traces of hops. There are very pronounced roasted, caramel, brown sugar, nutty flavors. Pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. This is a good brew.

Finally got my hands on this brew. Rivertowne in Verona had this for a 3 dollar pour. Score!
A - What a nice shade of dark brown, a touch hazy. First pour resulted in no head but second had a nice creamy mocha colored one. As you swirled the glass carbonation is good enough to create one.
S - Slightly roasted nuts, mild bitter coffee's and sweet toffee or caramel in the nose.
T - Transitions the nose pretty well being more sweet than roasty. A nice blend of nuts, caramel, coffee, and overall brown malts make this a great brew.
M - Light to medium very drinkable.
Overall not sure of the ABV (see site) but this is a solid brown ale almost like Duck Rabbit's if not better. Creamy, nutty, sweet, and delicious. Couldn't get a better beer for 3 bucks.

Pours a deep amber to brown color with a small tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and somewhat fruity. In the taste, a caramel like roast and notes of fruitiness. A smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small sticky sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A nice brown, nothing to jump over a fence about, but not bad either.

Sturdy mahogany color with a head that gushed over the glass and left little trace behind.
Toasty and malty sweet nose with a spritely hop presence. Toffee, molasses, and scorched earth with the flair of floral British hops. Light notes of chocolate and herbs. Smells great.
Bolstered by a strong elixiry malt base, Mischievous carries sweetness past bitter roast and earthy hops with cocoa notes and brown sugar. Still has that English toffee nuance that works well with the rest of the beer pushing drier flavors of grain, toast, and herbal bitterness. Floral hops are boosted, more so, than typical of an English Brown Ale. Tasty.
Low carbonation, but a good bit of body to it. Soft and giving.
A very good beer for the style. Appreciating this very much on a languid Saturday afternoon, over lunch.

Had at the blue dog.
Came too me very much looking like a stout. Deepestbrown black with a tall mocha head dense and long lasting with plenty o' lacing.
Aroma was roasted malts fruits caramel sugars. Maybe some hops.
Taste was good. It was full bodied smooth and easy drinking. Lots of roasted goodness in there with hints of fruits and nuts.
My first from helltown and I'm happy to say not my last.

Appearance is a chocolate brown with about a finger of head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty and bready nose – exactly what I might expect in a standard brown ale. The flavor is hearty with a mild and slightly sour bitterness on the finish. The light roasted malt character is pleasant and makes for a solid, but not exceptional brown ale.
