This is a brown ale infused with chocolate. That sounds good. On to the beer:

Poured into a Backer tulip glass, this beer is cola colored with ruby red hues. The head is solid, eventually it drops to a thin lacing around the glass. Out of the bottle you can smell the chocolate. And more chocolate. And more chocolate. Imagine opening a Lindt milk chocolate bar from the wrapper, smelling it, and that´s what you get.

Fortunately, the flavor isn´t far behind the aroma. Chocolate powder dominates the palate, toasted malts had a little bit of an accent, more chocolate arrives and takes your palate on a ride. It´s quite easy in the mouth with its very smooth feel and light-medium weight.

Here´s a beer for the chocolate lover. To my suprise, Backer Brown was a great experience, and I´m sure to take that ride again.

Black color with a caramel thick head of medium retention.
Aroma of toasted malts and lots of dark chocolate, as some was added to the recipe.
Flavor of toasted malts, mocha, and a perfect amount of hops. Aftertaste brings more chocolate and it is mildly dry. I was surprised with the balance of this beer.
Light body, a bit oily with medium carbonation.
Very pleasant porter (don’t think it is a brown ale). It is the best one of the Backer series and recommended for chocolate addicts.

3.25/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

355ml bottle served in a Backer tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark brown clear color forming a medium tan head with low retention and some lacings formed and left

S: Smell is strong on chocolate. A chocolate infused beer, for sure. The remaining smell is composed of roasted malts, mainly. A bit fruity and some flowery hops

T: Taste is a bit disappointing. Sweet upfront, burned caramel and roasted malts. But it's, at the same time, quite light and watery in the mouth

M: Very watery and light body. Medium to low carbonation. Slight roasted bitter aftertaste

O: Medium drinkability. I was expecting more from this one
