Appearance> Beautiful ruby brown. Pours with a big, large bubble, golden head that dissipates in a short spell. The beer is a bit lackluster in liveliness, but my fingers are crossed.
Smell>fresh baked brownies, brown sugar, burnt malt. Slight alcohol. Really, this smells quite delicious! Even better than I remembered.
Taste>First thoughts are of its sweetness, which gets a little alcoholic and then takes you right to the ashy end.This one isn't as complex as I like. It really sits in the back of your mouth and just stays there straight through the hang. It is good, no doubt, though.
Mouf>nice. ever so slightly chewy. This is how I like my brown ales to feel.
Drinkability> Average. I'd have to really dig into my six pack to see if the syrupy alcohol flavor gets too bothersome after a couple. I'd really love to try this again on tap.
This is my 200th review on BA, which I'm more than pleased to announce. Thanks a million to anyone who actually reads these, or anyone who has had to put up with the social awkwardness of me reviewing these with them in bars.

Reviewed at Johnson's Campground, St Mary, MT. Full notes taken to my phone.
A- Brown beer poured from a 12oz bottle to a goblet at glacier camping. Small light nutty tan head forms to one finger with fair retention. Small bubbly ring leaves rare spots of lace.
S- Nutty and deeply toasted malt aromas lead off the nose of the beer which is overall influenced mostly from the grains. Toffee, butter, brown sugar and caramel. Yeast gives some dark dry fruit and bready hints.
T- Yeast picks up a bit here with the dry spicy dark fruits like fig and raisin and some apple esters giving more influence. Malts still the key with toasted, nutty, cereal grain, caramel and dark sugar sweets. Ever so slight hint of roast.
MF- Medium thick body, maybe a tad toward the light side with a foamy texture. High end carbonation with a slight bitter finish.
Brown ale that is towards the drinkable side and reminds me of English style Browns with the body and toffee nutty flavor.
