My growler of Brownstone Ale was a perfect ice breaker at a pre-Christmas dinner last night as I poured all the adults from Nova Scotia, Vancouver and North Carolina a taste of one of Brooklyn's best. It's interesting malty aroma invited comments and first tasters remarked how smooth it went with the cheese platters we had out. A second round finished off the growler, but the unquestionable drinkability brought everyone to tell me what they wanted for Christmas in the form of growlers and half barrels.
Serving type: growler

16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a medium-toned brown body with a slim, paper thin, tan head.
Smell: Pithy, resinous top note from the hoppier elements. Muted brown sugar, nuts, ashen roast, and ineffusive chocolate powder.
Taste: Earthy, roasted nuts. Very low hint of brown sugar, even lesser hint of cocoa powder. Some ashy soot, molasses. Never much sweetness present. Resinous, citric hops with a medium-plus bitterness. Light nutty, roasty flavors, as well as some sustained, scraping resins on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied (barely), feels a little hollow. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A muddled hop-forward brown ale that, even with the addition of extra hops, still feels bland and lifeless.
Serving type: on-tap
