4.3/5 rDev +12.6%
A: Pours a very dark amber in color and a light amount of visible carbonation. Moderate amounts of lacing.
S: Light aromas of caramel with less pronounced smell of brown sugar and molasses. There is also some cocoa.
T: Dark malts with some hints of molasses, brown sugar, caramel, and sweetness. Also some nuts with a touch of cocoa. Very light bitterness in the finish.
M: Light to medium bodied. Creamy and smooth.
O: Extremely easy to drink. Enjoyable. Nice in the winter and I suspect year around.

Ruby tinted brown, my bottle being very clear, with a small whitish head with moderate slippery lacing.
Molasses, brown sugar and dark toasty malts in the nose.
The flavor is nicely balances between sweet and a nice drying on the finish. As in the nose, dark rich toasty malts, caramel flavored with a hint of chocolate with a lightly spicy hop presence. Very flavorful and very good!
The mouthfeel is more medium than light, very smooth and lightly creamy.
Overall I believe this has to be one of my favorite brown ales now! I've always been impressed by Bell's beers in general and this ale is no different. Highly recommended!

Best brown ale pours a cloudy copper to brown color with a nice cap of creamy foam. The nose is light and grainy, fitting for a brown ale. The aroma that it does produce is a pleasant darkly roasted malt with nutty overtones. The brown malt theme continues on the palate with a creamy smooth malt texture. A slight bitterness provides balance toward the end. This brew has all the makings of good beer.
