Old Town Brown Ale pulls a bit of a bait-and-switch right off the bat: the malt-forward nose is caramel, toffee and molasses, promising a sweet flavor, while on the palate the flavor is an admirably complex bitterness composed of dark chocolate, coffee and a roasted flavor that's damned close to burnt. The medium body and miles-past-dark-brown color almost require the briefly lingering coffee flavor found on the finish, and the lack of head and lacing are actually aesthetically appropriate for such a coffee-like beer. This would be a great breakfast beer with steak, eggs and hashbrowns.

One day later on write up. This looked good, smelled good, and first tastes were fine. Not my style but was looking forward to a new Natty on tap. But it left kind of a different taste in my mouth, I can't quite describe, maybe a little bitter. Please don't be dissuaded by my opinion, give it a try if you get the chance. I will probably give it another chance.
