A caramely creamy head dissipated quickly. dark brown color but you can still see light through the glass. Smell isn't very strong but it's got sweet notes of coffee and caramel. It's sweet to the taste but gives way to a toastd malt finish. There is very little hop presence. the after taste is pleasantly coffee. let it warm up some to really let the malts shine. the carbonation is slight, but the beer feels heavy. because of how sweet it is, this is definitely a sippin' beer for good conversation. I'd pair it with a coffee rubbed steak.

Solidly brown but allowing for light to shine through the center of the glass. Decent and lasting head which leaves streaks and spots for lace.

Darker caramel malt aromas. Definitely sweet to the nose. Some refrigerator smell in the background.

The mouthfeel is thick, probably because of the high sugar content. The swallow comes across as drier than the initial sip but I don't pick up much in the way of hop bitterness. The carbonation is low which enhances the richness of the brew. medium lasting aftertaste which features the a near toffee-like flavor, bordering on the burnt side.

Brown Ales are typically basic--this one fulfills that expectation adequately.

Pours a clear medium mahogany with moderate lacing.
Smell is roasted malt.
Taste is roasted malt caramel. A flash of coffee and chocolate.
Fairly mild in a good way. Smooth.

I have to admit, the label made me buy it. I have been exterminating squirrels for a long time, and this is another one that got put down! If they all tasted THIS good, they might be endangered.
Beautiful chocolate brown appearance, with nice foamy light tan head...
Caramel chocolate toffee-nut maltiness, balanced wonderfully with a well-executed balance of carbonation and edgy finish.
If you love brown ales, don't miss a chance to down this Brown Eyed Squirrel. Highly recommended, IMO.

Bottle. Medium dark brown with off-white head, nice retention. Nose is fresh bread. Flavor is slightly sweet, tasty brown and dark malts, full bodied. Hop balance and carbonation makes this a refreshing beer with clean finish. Fairly typical in style, but superior in balance and quality.
