Big thanks to UncleJazz for the bottle

Pours a deep clear brown with reddish hues with a tall, sudzy off-white head, good retention falling to a creamy collar leaving nice lacing. The nose features roasted malt, chocolate and light coffe. The taste again hits first with roasted grain, chocolate, light coffe, some nice biscuit/bread and a bit of char finishing with some nice bitterness. Full, smooth and round on the palate with nice carbonation; definitely feels bigger than than its 6.2%. A great example of the style reminding me of DFH Indian Brown.

really enjoyed this brown ale here, a christmas gift from my brother. thanks dude. shared with some friends up in vail this weekend. its a sturdy one as they go, quite a bit darker than is standard for the style. not quite porter dark, but its definitely the dark chocolate side of brown, with as much roast to the nose as there is cocoa, and a dancing tan head on top. nice nice nice. great depth on the grain front, beginning with a subtle caramel sweetness that moves into a coffee bitter to cancel it out almost as fast as it starts. neat how the darker of the grains jumps out in front of the chocolate malt, a little role reversal there, really appropriate. notes of burnt sugar and unmalted dark barley in the finish, but its not sweet, its neutral. hearty enough to satisfy after a day on the slopes, but not so weighty as to sacrifice drinkability. my kind of brown ale, with a decent bittering hop on the finish too, and maybe a touch of grain hull tannins as it goes down. not offensive by any stretch. i almost regret sharing this one because my glass was gone way too quick. impressed by these guys in my limited exposure.

Got this in a flight at the Tap House, nice deep brown color with not a huge aroma. Hint of chocolate and toffee. Taste was really nice with the chocolate, caramel, and toffee...very small hop bite that kept this from probably being overly sweet.

Bomber. BB date is May with no year.

Appearance: reddish brown with a nice rocky tan head. Some sediment in the glass.

Nose: milk chocolate, coffee, raisins, coffee

Taste: freshly roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, figs, fruity with some spice from the hops. Bitter finish. Nice full body I expect from this brown ale.

Great local example of a brown ale. I've had their blonde as well and it is also done very well.

One of my favorite brown ales. Great malt backbone, perfect body, mouthfeel, and head. Darn smooth and not too sweet. It's an A.

Very bold brown ale with a substantial roasty malt presence, and a smooth creamy mouthfeel.

Extremely good brown ale. If you like this style, you need to try this one.
