This brew pours a clear brown with bold amber highlights and a thin white head. The aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, and mild brown sugar. The flavor is a bit hoppy for an English brown ale but is followed by a molasses and sweet male finish. The mouthfeel is medium. Moat Mountain Bone Shaker Brown is a decent brew, recommended.

24oz can (!)

Gotta love the packaging for this beer. I could do without the sexualized catchphrases on the label, but otherwise, the bomber-sized can is badass, for sure.

Pours a very clear reddish brown. Pleasing color, but modest head. Okay lacing, not much retention. (3.5)

Aroma is clean. Caramel, light ester, no hop. (3)

Flavor is reliant on caramel malt rather than brown and/or chocolate malt. Tangy and spicy hops supporting in the background. Moderate bitterness, toffee flavor lingers nicely. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side, honestly. Medium carbonation. (3, 2.5)

Brown ale by default. Not a great example of the style, but nevertheless drinkable. Lacks malt depth. (3.5)

Big Can > Sensory Pils Glass

A - Pours a nice clear brown with one figner of soapy white head, medium lacing.
S - Aroma is nutty caramel and bready malt, a touch of earthy scents, but the malt is dominant.
T - Nice toasted caramel and biscuit malt with a touch of bitterness.
M - Mouth is great on this, creamy and smooth, medium, not heavy.
O - Good brown, could use more in taste and aroma, but the feel is very smooth and creamy.

24oz can: This one pours a clear, dark amber color. There was a very small off white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The nose is nice. there hints of chocolate brown sugar and roasted malts. The taste is good. A hint of the roastiness, biscuit, as well as a faint nuttiness. A bit of caramel malts. A faint bit of piney hops keeps this pretty evenly balanced. Just a ahir lighter than medium bodied. A decent enough beer!

3.73/5  rDev -4.1%

Into a nonic:

A: cloudy dark brown body with a good one finger foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left, too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising.

S: toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background.

T: sweet through the previously stated flavors and combines with some nice caramel tones.

M: medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, sessionable

O: I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style I'm used to and like from a company I've never had any of their stuff. I'd probably have this again, but definitely as a novelty because of the price.

3.74/5  rDev -3.9%

24 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is a deep copper color with some clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: caramel and bready malts. Not much else going on except for the maltiness.

Taste: Same as above with mild hop bitterness. Very malty too.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: A nice brown ale. 24 oz can is funny stuff too. It was a nice Easter present after snowboarding at Wildcat. It seems their canned beers are better than their bottled ones.
