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.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight yeast, hint of hop, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, yeast, slight roasted malt, hint of hop, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, but otherwise average beer.

Purchased at the Lilburn Package Store on RTE. 29.
Pours a very dark brown with a full tan/coffe, sticky head that also shows some heavy side glass lacing.
Aroma: Burnt dark chocoalte and cocoa, caramel, heavy roasted malts.
Taste: Roasted malts, chocoalte and caramel. Not much from the hop side but toasty malts are excellent.
Mouthfell: Smooth, semi-sweet but dry on the tongue and aftertaste.
This was an enjoyable beer. At $10.00 a six pack it would have to be reserved for special occasions. Drink this one slowly and enjoy.

32 oz - counter pressure filled growler - poured into a BHB snifter.

A - Deep brown with salted peanut hues. Thin beige head with OK lacing.

S - Fresh coffee, roasted peanuts and light chocolate notes. Light grassy hop notes. Really smells amazing.

T - Slight burnt toast, hints of your typical dark malt flavor profiles like chocolate and toffee in there with a moderate hop bitterness.

M - Light and drying finish that makes this a super drinkable beer. I made the mistake of saying that Cooter is poundable -- free joke for everyone out there in BA land.

O - An solid, drinkable brown ale. Would recommend.

3.76/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - deep copper brown hues bordering on dark brown in low light, 1 finger of creamed coffee colored head

Aroma - light caramel, some toasted grain, black malt character

Taste - bready, toasty, mild caramel with smoothe roasted character. Low hop flavor that is grassy and mildly spicy, black malt character in the finish with notes of coffee. Dry finish with lingering black malt roastiness

Mouthfeel - low but sifficient carbonation, smooth mouth coating medium-full body, finishes with slight silky noir coating linger

Overall - very good, very drinkable beer, the black malt like character makes it seem a little more like a robust porter but very good brown ale for drinkers seeking roastiness

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an opaque brown producing 3 fingers of frothy, tan, somewhat lasting head that leaves thin rings & streaks of pasty lacing. Aroma is dark malt, toast & a little roastiness, semisweet cocoa & an earthy mustiness. Taste is full & robust fronted by unsweetened cocoa, toasted brown bread, hints of roasted nuts, brown sugar & raisins, finishing & bitter with roast & burnt hints. Aftertaste is burnt bread, caramel & bitter cocoa finally fading to little more than char & bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy, with a moderate prickle & dry in the finish & aftertaste. There is an earthy note that is unique in this brew that I do not remember encountering in this style previously. A different & interesting brown ale.
