look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice opaque brown body with one-finger head even after 15 minutes, Solid lacing that washes off quickly but seems consistent

Scent: Burnt sugar, toasted bread, molasses, floral and pine-y/spicy hop notes, cookies and light cream are all apparent. Better/more complex as it warms

Taste: Toasted malts and deep caramel melded with some hops that balance out a fairly sweet-leaning palate

Mouthfeel: Smooth with on-style carbonation leaning towards a heavy body. The spicy, pine-y hops even this out, however

Drinkability: This would be a great brown ale to share with someone who is into the style but hasn’t had this particular one yet. Pretty great!

Overall: Though the huge can is definitely silly, this is a very solid, drinkable and enjoyable brown ale from New England that has definite Old World English brown characteristics and is very even in temperament. Need to get more brews by Moat!

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.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a nice dark brown with a 1 finger creamy white head. Fair amount of carbonation rose from the bottom. Head only lasted a few minutes. Aroma was a roasted grain, similar to a brown bread, with a reasonable fit of sweetness to it. Taste was a bit spicy up front, hints of pepper. Mellowed out to a roast malt/oat flavor. Not bad in the mouth. The tongue was a little on the excessively tingly side, but coated fairly well. Overall a solid brown. Takes a ding on the cost, seemed a bit high for a brown.

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.

Picked up one of Moat Mountain's awesome 24oz tallboys at the corner store and was very very pleasantly surprised.

A - Fairly opaque, cloudy darker shade of brown with a half finger of cream-colored head.

S - Lightly toasted oats and barley, walnut, caramel, hazelnut.

T - Follows the nose, with toasted grains, nuts, and caramel sweetness. Very pleasant and easy to drink.

M - Slightly dry. Medium body. Good.

O - Overall this is my new gold standard for brown ales. This beer is so easy to drink, fairly simple and unassuming. Very accessible and exciting at the same time. What a great surprise.

Pours a clear red orange brown color with a decent sized bubbly tan head that slowly dissipates to a ring on top. Smells like a brown ale. Lots of caramel and toffee with hints of butterscotch, chocolate, and earth. The flavor is sweet with malts, lots of brown sugar and caramel with a slight bit of spice and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation ans a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. This is a nice brown ale. Solid tasty simple brew.
