Appearance is brown with a bit of light passage. White head upon pour, just a collar left behind and no lacing. Smell features tons of bourbon barrel character with toasted marshmallow, raspberry, and light roast. Taste starts with tons of vanilla oak and bourbon, with heavy raspberry syrup character and a touch of boozy heat. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side with mellow carbonation. Overall, this is quite a tasty brew with heavy bourbon presence.

Reviewing the Berry Brown from Revolution Brewing Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This beer was brewed for New Years Eve this year.
Score: 92

Tap pour served in a 5 oz taster glass and enjoyed on 01/04/12.

Appearance: Pours a dark, murky caramel color with minimal head. Oily lacing and retention. 3.5/5

Smell: Complex! Molasses, brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, raisins and raspberries. 4.5/5

Taste: Bourbon flavors upfront with a strong fruity raspberry finish. Mild tannic acidity too. Not as complex as the nose. Some vanilla too. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied, minimal carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Malty. 4/5

Overall: Delicious and bourbon flavor forward without the booziness! Not the world's biggest brown ale fan, but this one was delicious.

Recommendation: Fans of malty beers and bourbon-heavy brews should seek this one out.

Pairings: Chocolate cake.

Cost: $3 for a 5 oz taster glass.
