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.

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.

In a pint glass-Pours brown.... I was expecting that. half finger of head, not much lacing. appearance is normal for brown. slight red edges to the beers color.
Smell is toast. like a fresh honey wheat bagel in the toaster. brown sugar sweet, slight coffee note.
Taste: Wow, who knew a brown ale could taste this good? Extremely quaffable but with a shitload of flavor. At first its slightly toasty, a little brown sugary sweetness and then a lil' tiny roasted m alt starts talking to ya. I could have one of these for breakfast.
Finish is perfect. a little bit of coffee on a maltly sweet canvas. Leaves you begging for more. MMmmmm, get in my mouth.
Overall: I'm a hophead. Before I had this beer, I always told everybody I didn't like any example of the style. This is the only brown ale I've ever had that I actually enjoy. It's a tad more roasty than other examples and much more depth. It's Awesome in every way. Doesn't look all that impressive but who cares?

Darker than expected, very dark red held up to a light.
Smells a little roasty, malty, nutty. Certainly seems that an English yeast was used.
Tastes of caramel, minimal coffee, slight sweetness.
Lighter on the carbonation side, very drinkable/session-able. Very smooth
For a brown ale this is very good, would buy again.

Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a small head that dissipated instantly. Grabbed this straight from the brewery garage from a growler straight into a tulip glass.
It was extremely fresh with a small amount of carbonation. Very drinkable with a toasted nut, caramel and light coffee flavor. The taste did not linger but the coffee essence continued throughout. This goes down way to fast and tastes too good! I could probably drink the whole growler (if I could stand-up). This could easily become one of my favorites, if the draft version at the local pubs tastes as good as this.

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.
