Enjoyed at the brewery

Amber to brown in color; light head; serious lacing; tastes like cocoa, but not over the top; easy to drink; made with local honey, but honey flavor kind of hard to find; good slightly sweet flavor. Overall, another accessible offering by TP...

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

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Dark muddy brown with ruby coming through in the light. A light cream colored head dissipates to a light wisp. Very light splotches of lacing.

Aroma: Dark roasted grains, sweet malts, chocolate, and honey.

Taste: Starts out with a Tootsie Roll kind of chocolate note with some honey sweetness in the background. Somewhat of a bitter finish for balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: One of the better brews out of the Twisted Pine 12 pack mixer.

3.51/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

poured chilled from 12oz into a willybecker purchased in a crate of ales mix case, shared with tenderbranson69.

The color is medium dark brown with very full head almost half a glassful with fine bead after settling and spotty lace. The smell is good, malt presence with a sweet ester mild alcohol and fruity yeast accent. The feel is decent with moderately high carbonation with moderate sweetness and low bitterness with a mostly dry finish and slight fruity texture with hints of roast.

The taste is good, lots of malt with a mild honey-like sweetness and gentle roasted malt flavor with some nutty elements with light yeast flavor adding a tangy aspect to the malt forward brown ale qualities. Overall it has enough honey in the feel to present a semi-sweet element to the brown ale base, easy to drink yet not very complex in general, about average for the style.

12 oz bottle

A- deep amber. Nice sized head, very little lacing.

S- light cocoa powder.

T- nice clean cocoa flavor. Not much else. Water and cocoa.

M- thin and dry at the finish. Would be better with a full body and no honey drying the end out. Unimpressive.

O- starts with decent flavor. But the body and finish are lacking.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Medium light tan head settle into a nice long lasting lacing above a caramel amber colored brown.

Roasted to almost burnt caramel malt aroma is light but quite full.

Dark roasted caramel malt taste drowns out anything else that might be coming forth.

A dryish dark roasted malt aftertaste that lingers on and on with this medium to fullish bodied beer.

A decent tasting brown with its dark roasted aspect it comes off better than a lot of browns with there lighter caramel malts.

Tasted On: 07-10-2012
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, twist-cap
Glassware: Schooner
Purchased: Hotel lobby

Picked this up on a hotel stay in Colorado.

A: Clear with a dark brown color. The head is rocky and light tan; 3 fingers in height. Lacing is good with a very nice amount of retention.

S: Chocolate, dark bread, and caramel malts make up the aromas.

T: Toasted grains, as in coffee, with some earthy hops bitterness. Malty and nutty, plus rye bread sourness. I can't perceive any honey flavors.

M: The finish is dry, with some bitterness of roasted grains. Body is medium and has an average carbonation level.

O: I'd say this was an OK brown ale, but nothing I'd go out of my way for.
