This double brown ale was aged in the barrels that Odell uses for their Woodcut series, and dosed with Brettanomyces for secondary fermentation. It's 10% alcohol, but quite smooth and creamy.
We tasted ten brown ales—from bright, hoppy ones to the sweet and pruney. Whether you're looking for something bitter to see you through the World Series or a more warming, chocolately beer on a rainy night, we have favorites for both.
A good brown ale is gentle, smooth, and wonderfully drinkable, pint after pint. Despite their low alcohol, these are flavorful malty beers. We tried five brown ales—check out our favorites.
