Notes/Commercial Description:
his is named after a song that sparked the idea to make this ale. Brown ales seem to be there, but not really there, do you know what I mean? Well that won't be the mistake with Wynona! Voodooed out this style and add more that's what we say. Hoppy and smooth hints of chocolate and tons of brown malt to let you know it's there. Try the brown, You'll be Happy You Did!!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Served in a pint.

A - Deep mocha hue with a one-finger khaki head. Fair retention with little lacing.

S - Chocolate, bitter coffee, toffee and caramel malt. Sweet, even for a brown.

T - Milk chocolate is the dominate taste here, bitter coffee is in attendance. Roasted flavors blend nicely to make this a unique brown. I question how close this is to a milk stout though...

M - Creamy medium body with light carbonation.

O - This is a fine example of a brew that is better than the sum of its parts. A brown which combines a creamy body with some good flavors, without being overly robust.

Pours a rich brown with a mocha head on top. The head is dense but not tall.
Aroma is quite porter like which I wasn't expecting and robust.
Plenty of roasted malts aroma.
taste is similar, with a rich roasted malt taste. Not overly pronounced butr lighter then a porter.
Drinks thick and creamy.
Surprizingly good with desent flavor.

I had this on tap at Stone Grille in York, served in a goblet chilled.

the color is dark brown translucent with light tan head with very fine bead.
The smell is malt with caramel and toasted odor with light fruity yeast aroma with mild toffee-like scent. The feel is very good lots of malt complexity and medium carbonation with subtle dry finish and mild alcohol.

The taste is very good with malty toasted taste with sufficiently toffee-like and caramel sweetness with light coffee/cocoa and hint of dried fruit in the light woody realm with mild roast in the finish. Overall a pretty enjoyable brown, plenty of malt and a nice amount of alcohol. Very easy to quaff.

Serving type: on-tap
