This review is for "Bolita Double Brown Ale" with ping pong lottery balls all over the front of the label. I need to research whether this is a different beer than the one I'm reviewing. Poured normally into a tulip glass.
A: Dark reddish brown color, much darker than you'd expect from a double brown ale. INCREDIBLE foamy beige (almost brownish) head that slowly dissipates into a beautiful even coating. Great looking beer.
S: Loads of caramel, peanut butter, nuts. Some chocolate toffee and maybe brown sugar or maple.
T: Tastes like you're eating a caramel candy. Very sweet and malty, with all of the flavors described in the smell. Nice alcohol warming effect, but the alcohol bite is mellowed nicely by the smooth, creamy sweetness of the beer.
M: Incredibly thick and sticky. More so than a lot of stouts! It not only tastes like you're eating caramel candy, but it feels like that too. "Sticks to the ribs"
O: This beer is almost creating a new genre. I'd call it a nut brown stout. It was a really enjoyable experience even though I was drinking it on my balcony on a nice summer night. This is more of a winter sipper.
