Reviewing to help get a score. Tasted three times on tap now and I must like it because I keep drinking it!

Pours a light coffee brown with some orange highlights.

Nose has some vanilla, carmel, maple syrup and undertones of bourbon whiskey. You can "feel/taste" the Black Tuesday.

Mouthfeel is medium to full which is nice for this style and with a creamy character. Mouthfeel is very inviting - you want to drink it!

Flavor profile is pretty complex with maple, light coffee, brown sugar and hints of molasses. There is a nutty and toasty undertone. All in all, very drinkable.

A: This pours a mildly turbid brown with nice lacing at the edges, good carbonation.

S: There's some light brown sugar and hints of the bourbon from the Black Tuesday, caramello and maple syrup in oatmeal.

T: The brown ale is apparent with an nuttiness, almond, sweet bourbon and vanilla that finishes clean.

M: This is still a brown ale but a bit of a heaviness to the mouthfeel that is satisfying

D: this is exceptionally drinakble and imparts a huge caramel and nut presence and the BT lurking in the background pushes it over the top.

On tap at the Bruery

A: Pour a medium brown with a nice white head

S: Upon a swirl I pick up a browns normal suspects, Hazelnut, chocolate and a small blend of vanilla and bourbon

T: Hazelnut, malt, chocolate and a touch of bourbon

M: BT adds a more heavier mouthfeel the most Brown ales

O: This was a very solid brown ale that I enjoyed considering that browns are not really a style that im keen to.

On-tap at The Bruery, a blend of 80% Brown Ale and 20% Black Tuesday,

A: Pours brown with a soft white head with some solid lace.

S: Nice nutty nose with some dark chocolate, hint of peanut butter.

T: More straight up brown ale here, nuts and caramel malt, some pecan.

M: Medium-bodied, frothy, creamy, the BT adds a punch.

O: A nice brown ale in the end. I noticed some similarities in flavour with Nautical which is always good, just wish there was more BT influence.
