Poured bomber of Davy Brown into a glass:

A: Pours a medium brown that allows plenty of light through. Visible carbonation. This stuff looks just like rootbeer. Head is about a finger thick. Medium retention, very pronounced lacing.

S: This stuff smells very organic. Earthy comes to mind. Roasted malts persist.

T: Taste isn't very strong. Similar to the smell, it tastes very earthy with some hints of roasted malts. Pretty bitter. Ends on a boozy note.

M: Oily, with light carbonation. Kind of a wet finish.

O: Overall, I wasn't all that impressed with this one. There's definitely better stuff out there.

I wasn't impressed by Figueroa's hoppy options, but this is a lovely brown. The malt character spans the distance between roasted barley, with a hint of smoky cocoa, to toffee and dark bread, with a caramel finish. Though one quibble: the aroma doesn't stack up to the flavor's complexity. It's not that heavy, medium weight, and an excellent example of how to make a malt-forward beer.

Davy Brown is a very solid brown ale that gives me everything I want when I order a brown. Nice rich roasted malt flavors with just a hint of a hop bite.

Looks like coca cola with a head. Smells a little nutty and a little cocoa.

Taste is less pronounced than the smell but much the same.

finishes smooth and good like a good brown should.
