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.

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.

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

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.
