During the cooler months of the year, a brown ale is a popular choice. Made with roasted malts, the darker ales have a toasty flavor that’s perfect for Fall. In particular, the Great Raft Creature of Habit is a brown ale mixed with a twist of coffee. In this Fall beer, both the dark ale and coffee flavors are prominent, coalescing into a warm and refreshing flavor.

Like the Great Raft Creature, the Fall Stout from Maine Beer Company is also a dark ale coffee stout. It earns the name “Fall” because its chocolatey flavor is not too dense and peppered with cedar and citrus — just perfect for enjoying a chilly New England day.
