Dark mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of s’mores, chocolate chip muffin, and fig newton with a slightly chewy, effervescent, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long maple syrup on cereal, caramelized fruits finished with white balsamic, honeyed greens and artichoke hearts, and pepper and herbs finish. A nice chewy, slightly boozy, savory brown ale on the imperial end of the spectrum.

American style brown ales are light brown to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6.5%. Compared to the English version of the style, these beers tend to be higher in alcohol and feature sweet, rich malt notes in addition to medium-to-high American hop flavors and aromas. The malt profile of these beers may be quite complex including flavors and aromas of caramel, toasted malt and chocolate, with a pronounced hop profile easily identifiable as American. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Lost Coast Downtown Brown, North Coast Acme Brown, Brooklyn Brown Ale and Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar.
