A good friend of mine has figured out a great recipe for an American Brown Ale. Last year we ended up running some of his batch through a barrel and it came out great. This year I have been brewing it to keep pushing the recipe where it can go. It’s not there yet, but its a great start.
American Brown Ale:
Appearance: Very dark brown to black, but a reddish hue when held up to the light
Nose:the initial roastiness is met with dark chocolate. Mild hop aroma
Flavor: Very balanced chocolate and hop bitterness. No real roastiness, but a very smooth taste
Mouthfeel: A wonderful creamy body, but a slight bitterness from the dark grains
Overall: This is a delicious brown ale. The chocolate flavor sends my mind into a head spin. 8.2/ 10
