Taste Notes

This is a hearty brown ale that is richer in malt and hop flavor than the milder British style nut brown ale. I named this one after my dog Barley, who is a Chocolate Lab with a rich chocolate brown coat the same color as this beer. Barley happens to like stealing a few slurps of the wort when I am brewing if given a chance! This is a full bodied, creamy brown ale with flavors of toasty malts, nuttiness, and hints of coffee. This beer goes great with harvest season salads such as spicy green and cranberry salad with roasted nuts, earthy, and nutty cheese such as Camembert, a rich mushroom gravy, or hearty beef stew. The recipe is great for a quick brew, because this beer will taste good in as little as three weeks after fermentation starts.
