This beer is really sour. Beer pours a rich amber with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent and taste were primarily sour dough. The mouthful is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall not for me.

From 750 mL bottle to pint glass

A: The brew yields a giant foamy head on a gentle pour, obviously well bottle-fermented. Is cola-brown in color, kinda oily viscous as well.

S: Tart cherries are the dominant note of a lively bouquet, per usual for a JP offering. Woody, oaky notes as well, touches of pepper.

T: The flavors are an interesting play between tart fruit and nutty sweetness. Oak and white pepper add complexity, while notes of alcohol rounds the palate.

M: Chewy, full-bodied and well carbonated.

Another tasty treat from Jolly Pumpkin. Definitely recommended of you're like me and find most brown ales boring.

On no planet is this a brown ale---it's definitely a sour, and a merely average one at that. Very thin mouthfeel, faint smell of orange, and overpowering sweetness, almost nutra-sweet-y. Cannot taste the cacao at all. Really pretty beer with a great creamy head, though.
