Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear chocolate brown with a medium sized tan colored head. The aroma is big on roasted malt and chocolate with some nut flavors tossed in. The taste is a nice mix of coffee, malt and cocoa. Overall, a very good beer from Bur Oak. My first from them.

Clear brown body, sprite carbonation, very light tan head, some lace. Nose is sharp hop/coffee near-acidity, chocolate, as in real chocolate. Flavor is much warmer and less biting than the nose: coffee, realistic semi-dark chocolate on finish, lots of toasty malt. Sweetness prevails, but a mild bitterness is present throughout. Too highly carbonated, but medium body.
I love the rich, dark flavors while balanced by sweetness and noticeable but appropriate bitterness. Extremely realistic coffee and chocolate flavors, not just the malt-similar versions of each. This is repeat-worthy.

Best damn brown I've had in a while. Pours out a nice translucent, reddish brown with a tan head. Smells nice and roasty with a touch of hoppiness underneath. Strong flavors of roasted coffee which is backed by a slight baked biscuit. Finishes with a touch of dark bitter chocolate, maybe some dark, dried fruit as well? Overall this beer has some great strong flavors while still being very sessionable. Damn good beer!

Pours a clear milk chocolate brown. Nice looking tan colored head of about 1.5 fingers. Head recedes quickly with minimal lacing left behind.

Aroma is chocolate and lightly roasted malt. A bit of nuttiness and caramel. Some coffee.

Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and toffee. All flavors are relatively mild. A bit of sweetness from the chocolate which is balanced by slight bitterness from the coffee.

This is not a very thick beer. Medium carbonation. Low ABV at 5.4% and no hint of the alcohol.

This is a good clean example of a Brown Ale. Very easy drinking and has nice balanced flavors that don't overwhelm.

Slightly hazy chestnut brown with ruby highlights and a modest tan head that subsides quickly leaving only traces of lacing.

The aroma is caramel malt with hints of chocolate and pine.

The taste is in line with the aroma, mildly sweet caramel, a bit of chocolate, a touch of citrus and a pine resin hop finish.

Light/medium bodied, fairly smooth and very drinkable.

Altogether a decent and enjoyable brown ale.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Look: Dark brown with cream colored head and lacing
Smell: subtle aromas - lightly roasty and nutty
Taste: roasty, nutty, lightly tart with some fruity esters. little bitterness.
Feel: light and nicely carbonated

Overall: This is a pretty well-crafted basic brown ale. Fairly subtle flavors and aromas, which makes it more sessionable. I suspect fans of the brown ale will appreciate this one, however there isn't quite enough to keep me interested.
