Pours out a light brown /dark amber with a small skin of beige head. Sweet nutty aroma, more molasses sweetness in the taste. Very light bodied and not much of a finish.

3.48/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a 3" cream colored pillowy head that drops very slowly leaving lots of lacing behind. Color is clear reddish-brown with some visible streaming carbonation.

Aroma: sweet malts and caramel are dominate but some piney and earthy hop notes also present.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, slick, with a damp finish.

Flavor: rich roasted malts, a hint of char, nuts, a hint of chocolate, hops in the taste are more earthy, but a hint of pine is still around. A slight dankness in the finish.

Overall: a very nice brown ale.

Served from tap in a tumbler at Beer Market - Vernon Hills.

Are most browns not sessionable? Regardless, this stuff pours a clear midnight sienna-amber topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises dried maple syrup and mild dark greens. The taste brings in more of the same, finishing in a veneer of grass. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, though this stuff isn't particularly bad or anything, it stands as something I wouldn't likely want to have again. Just me, perhaps...

12oz bottle from the COOP... Poured into my Big Ole' Elysian Pumpkin goblet... short lived tannish head.. decent lacing.. the brew is very clear dark walnut.

Nose has a light pithy PNW hoppiness up front that moves immediately into dark toast... dark caramel.. but still somehow a little flimsy and watery.

Flavor mirrors the aroma with a pronounced nuttiness... I see what the brewers were doing with this one and honestly dig it.... very drinkable.

Well done weeknight brew.

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
5% ABV

A - Robust mahogany amber colored, BridgePort's Trilogy 3 is gorgeous and clear topped by a chunky, fleeting tan head with specks of lace left over on the glass.

S - Grassy, earthy hops impart a dry dusting of dirt over the top of toasted malts and an undertone of sweet caramel cube.

T - Plenty of malt flavor brings forth a nice balance of dry toasted bread and semi-sweet caramel notes off-set by its finish of light earthy hoppiness.

M - This brown's sweeter entry lends an initial full feel that thins out with the onset of dry bitterness on the finish for a round, medium-light body.

O - BridgePort's malty final installation of their Trilogy series takes a step away from the otherwise hop-forward formula for a pretty easy drinking brown with tasty malt balance and a dry finish balanced by hops.

Single 12 oz bottle from Winco supermarket in Salem OR. $1.39 Nice darker brown ale with a ruddy aspect to it with a large frothy/rocky lighter tan head. Rather nicely hoppy aroma for a brown ale. The usual caramel malts is there too but the nice citrus/spruce hops shine. Taste also is more balanced with the nutty aspects of the malts coming to the fore. But the hops are still there and tasty. Mouth feel is nice and has higher carbonation which aids in drinking. Nice hybrid beer..i think 10 Barrel had an Oregon Brown Ale similar to new style OBA!

Pours a hazy reddish-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, roasted nut, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, nut, earth, and some herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast and roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice amount of hop qualities that work well with the traditional brown ale characteristics.

Serving type: bottle.

12oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer is dark brown but not at all turbid, with a little off-white head on top. Mild aroma. Flavor is a nice blend of subtle, but spicy, hops and a mild. nutty body. Session brown ale is a good description of Trilogy 3: Brewes' Class. Unfortunately, not nearly as exciting as Trilogy 1, for my pint.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin light tan head that dissipated to patches. Aroma is a nice balance of sweet dark malt with piney hops, hints of nuts. Flavor is sweet toasted malt, nuts, hint of caramel, light piney and grassy hops, finishing with mild piney hop bitterness. Medium bodied. A nice, well balanced light brown ale. Somewhat understated, but the flavors are spot on for a light American style brown ale, but leaving me wishing for a bit more intensity, although probably within parameters for the ABV. One of the better Trilogy offerings.
