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.

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.

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.

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.

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
