The brewery clarifies this as a brown ale. To me it tastes and feels more like a porter ( a good thing as I really like a nice porter). Pours a dark brown with a smallish tan head that leaves fairly quickly but leaves some nice lacing on the drink down. The small head counts toward my mark down on looks. The taste is strong on the roasted malts with some bitterness from the hops coming into play in the background. I really enjoyed this beer and will be buying it again.

Tall can....PKGD 5/16/18..so a few months in the can, shouldn't be a big problem with this brown ale.

Pour about medium brown/quite dark auburn, lasting mocha cap and leaves some nice looking fields of fine lacing on the glass. Delicate and nice looking brew.

Some nuttyness and caramel on the nose.

Pleasing Brown ale loaded with more nuttyness, again light caramel, toffee, milk chocolate....fresh tasting and flavorful - quite enjoyable stuff....dont sleep on in when in its disro area...

16 oz can at the Suwannee Music Park.
This strongly flavored brown ale has high loads of dark roasted grains and hops. Above average bitterness for style. Hints of burnt toast, bitter chocolate, and dark dried fruits.
Smooth, medium-full body and near medium carbonation.

16 oz can
Not quite opaque dark brown like cherry furniture. A finger's beige head which shrinks to a persistent ring and islands. Curtain lacing.
Dark malt, toffee, cocoa aromas, bread note.
Nutty, with some hop bitterness up front. Dark malts, coffee.
Hoppy element integrated well with the nutty malts. Carbonation is long lasting. Semi-sweet aftertaste.
Enjoyable. Hard to resist opening another one.

Pretty light, not even quite the mohogany they suggest. Very clear, too. Nice creamy khaki head. Bright hops dominate the nose; not much in the way of roastiness. Those hops are also quite prominent in the flavor, though you do have that rounded off a lot by the thick creaminess of the mouthfeel. Overall, an ok beer, but one that does not represent what I'm looking for in a brown.

Pours brown. Thick, short, tan head that lasts a little while fading to lasting cap.

Smells caramel malt, roasted malt and earthy hops.

Tastes roasted malt, bready, light coffee. Followed by an earthy bitterness. Finish is dry with a roasty and earthy linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

So the Birdsong rep was at Growlers and offered to buy me one, so I obliged. I tend to get locked into IPAs so this was a nice change up. Some hops but some coffee/caramel taste as well. I had another one, on my own dime.
