16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Hop Alley in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Displays a dark brown body, though there're some amber-gold hints at the edges. Foamy, faintly beige head.

Smell: Heavily toasted bread, there's a thin edge of coffee roastiness. Minor cocoa powder, faint caramel. Lightly fruity, low herbaceous hop notes.

Taste: Falls in the middle ground between toasty and roasty, with inclusions of lightly sweet chocolate and caramel. Soft fruitiness, a little raisin and cooked apple. Light herbal hops with sufficient bitterness to balance. Drying, toasty (oh, but still a bit roasty) on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Solid, likable brown ale.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
A: Pours clear dark brown with a small tan head that soon reduces to a partial coat.

The aroma is a bit weak and earthy for style. A suggestion of an offensive musty component seems to come and go.

The flavor is better. It seems like an average brown ale until the finish and aftertaste where a more generous portion of hops becomes evident.

Great smell and look to this beer. Not really a brown ale guy, so don't necessarily love the taste. But certainly better than some that I've had.

Nice aroma and sweet malty flavor. Nothing exceptional going on here but a decent brown.

Poured a small ring head and a dark brown in appearance. Not much lacing. First thing in the nose was roasty followed by malts. The tongue was also had a roasty coffee type followed by a mellow malt. Mouthfeel was medium. Overall really enjoyed this offering however it reminded me more of a porter than a brown ale. As I enjoy porters and stouts moreso than brown ales, it was cool for me. My second time purchasing a Cooter Brwon six pack and will do again.
