Bottle from the brewery store.
Pours a clear dark brown color with ruby at the edges and a creamy frothy off white head that displays great retention and lace. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and chocolate maltiness with just a hint of butterscotch and earthy hop to balance. The flavor is rich caramel and toffee maltiness with a fair amount of chocolate notes and some earthy hop flavor and minimal bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy silky mouthfeel. I seem to be a bit better at tolerating diacetyl in darker beers and I kind of enjoyed this one.

Friend brought this back from New Brunswick. From notes.

A - Poured deep amber and bright with good carbonation. One finger of off white head on top left OK lace but no retention.

S - Nutty, malty, butterscotchy.

T - Sweet malt, sugary, sweet, buttery, nutty.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, sweet with nuttiness to finish.

O/D - Decent shot at a brown. Pretty straightforward, but good and along similar lines to what Picaroons have been doing.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass.

A: pours a glossy brown with a minimal amount of head and very little retention, but it looks like a brown ale should.

S: much maltier than I had expected, and there are aspects of roast and some very mild hops scents there as well.

T: roasts and malts sneak in and then the profile smooths out to a decently balanced British ale.

M: medium carbonation and fullness

O: a good effort on this style by Picaroons. Definitely not an American style brown ale, this recipe is a traditional one from the British and the war of 1812. I'd like to see more like this from them.

Got it on tap in a growlah. Poured into Picaroons glass.

A - dark auburn, little red for a brown. Thin lacing around edges.
S - burnt toffee, some caramel.
T - nutty, brown sugar, earthy finish.
M - medium body, bit acidic.
O - Picaroons claims they're still tweaking the recipe. Overall it's not quite a brown, but it's a solid Picaroons outing. They may be making it into a regular eventually, so further review pending.
