Deep mahogany in color with a quarter inch khaki brown head on top. Brussels lacing. Wonderful aroma of chocolate malt with just a touch of roasted barley. The chocolate notes dominate the flavor with a light mount of bitterness from the roasted barley. The mouth is velvety smooth and creamy.

Demshitz brown pours a very dark brown with ruddy garnet highlights. It's darkness gives it an almost unfiltered look, though it is clear. Soft foamy head of light mocha coloring. Very nice looking brown ale here. Aroma is rather faint; roasted barley with a hint of the Willamette hops deep in there. Wish that aroma was stronger. Taste is smooth and grainy. Chocolate malts with equal hoppiness, more roasted character, finished with just a kiss of hops bitterness and light smokiness. Carbonation is noticeable but not too much or rough.

A decent sessionable brown ale. Nowhere near Upslope's brown, but a nice sipper.

On-Tap 12oz. (The Ale House)
5.8% ABV

Pours a nice dark brown color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some nice chocolate, coffee notes. The taste is malty, chocolate, coffee notes. Medium body. Overall a nice brew.
