Honey roasted peanut and fresh coffee aromas arise from the glass of this deliciously balanced brown ale. Dark Chocolate, hints of vanilla and nutty undertones are evident mid-pallet, while roasted coffee beans round out the finish.

On tap at the brewery taproom In San Diego.

Pours dark red-brown with a good tan head.

Aroma: sweet malts and hints of dark fruits.

Flavor: sweet malts. Hints of dark fruits, coffee, and hops.

O: a nice. slightly robust version of the style. Worth trying.

I love a good brown ale and this is exactly that. Pours brown and smells exactly the way a brown ale should. Goes down very smooth.

Clear dark red-brown with a modest foam in the Duvel tulip. There's a faint whiff of vanilla and yesterday's coffee. Lots of burnt flavors and the faintest malty note.

This must be one of the driest American Browns I've ever tasted. It gets rather sharp as you sip. There is a slight nutty taste. Very spritzy on the tongue, and I don't mean that in a nice way. It's more of a flavored club soda.

Overall, this is plain and straightforward and austere. The bitter aftertaste leaves me wanting a beer chaser, of something else. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery taproom.

Just learned they won some gold medals for this one, I can see why. Absolutely delicious Brown!
