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.

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.

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.

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.
