Diamond Knot Brown Ale

CIMG7318

Here’s another brown ale for ya. This is a local one brewed with Pale, Munich, Caramel, and Chocolate malts with black and flaked barley, Galena, and Willamette hops. I’m glad to see Diamond Knot finally updated their website.

Stats:
American Brown Ale. 6.0% ABV. 27 IBUs. Washington.

Well, it’s brown. Nice dark caramel color. Head is decent, but doesn’t stick around for too long.

Aroma is not bad after you swirl it a bit. It’s got that nice toasted nut thing going on with a hint of sweetness. Pretty much what I look for in a brown.

Mouthfeel is pretty solid. Medium body with medium carbonation.

Hint of toasted nuts, especially on the back, with a little bit of caramel. Slightly sweet but has just a little bit of bitterness on the finish.

I rarely find brown ales to be exciting, and this is no exception. Some nice flavors here, but tastes quite watered down. Amplify the flavor and the beer would be fantastic. 82 points.
