Notes/Commercial Description:
One of the coolest styles in the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) as its development came out of American Homebrewing! This is where our Brown comes from as well. We keep this beer riding a line between chocolate bitterness and coffee roast and support it with American Hops as well. Brown Beer is one of our favorite styles and has a lengthy history due to the fact that most malt kilning plants in ages past were using direct heat to roast and kiln. It was a lot harder to keep malt light in color back in the day, but we've got most of it down to a science now.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark chocolate brown in color. No light will pierce this brew. Fingernail thin eggshell colored foam on top. Aroma of caramel and coffee is present but faint. The flavor is very much so coffee and and dark malt. The mouthfeel is a bit chalky and thick.

Serving type: on-tap
