Got a pint bottle of one'a these from ma & Joe while in Florida-thank you very much!
A good brown ale is one of my favorites,even over porter's on some days...although,I was looking for the anchor brotherhood steam beer while on vacation in 2015 & searching thru 7 states,I still have yet to find it (it's currently my TOP wanted beer)...but this will most definitely suffice for now!
cheers,cheers for Florida beers!

It's all stout until the finish, then you get the nutty brown ale flavor.

I'm a huge fan a Maduro but found it to be a bit thin. Bolita solves that by delivering a huge dry chocolate malt and then giving a satisfying heft to the feel. The chocolate is fudgey, with a touch of caramel, toffee, creamy espresso and light marshmallow. Very well done!
