Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Dark muddy brown with ruby coming through in the light. A light cream colored head dissipates to a light wisp. Very light splotches of lacing.

Aroma: Dark roasted grains, sweet malts, chocolate, and honey.

Taste: Starts out with a Tootsie Roll kind of chocolate note with some honey sweetness in the background. Somewhat of a bitter finish for balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: One of the better brews out of the Twisted Pine 12 pack mixer.

poured chilled from 12oz into a willybecker purchased in a crate of ales mix case, shared with tenderbranson69.

The color is medium dark brown with very full head almost half a glassful with fine bead after settling and spotty lace. The smell is good, malt presence with a sweet ester mild alcohol and fruity yeast accent. The feel is decent with moderately high carbonation with moderate sweetness and low bitterness with a mostly dry finish and slight fruity texture with hints of roast.

The taste is good, lots of malt with a mild honey-like sweetness and gentle roasted malt flavor with some nutty elements with light yeast flavor adding a tangy aspect to the malt forward brown ale qualities. Overall it has enough honey in the feel to present a semi-sweet element to the brown ale base, easy to drink yet not very complex in general, about average for the style.

12 oz bottle

A- deep amber. Nice sized head, very little lacing.

S- light cocoa powder.

T- nice clean cocoa flavor. Not much else. Water and cocoa.

M- thin and dry at the finish. Would be better with a full body and no honey drying the end out. Unimpressive.

O- starts with decent flavor. But the body and finish are lacking.

Enjoy.

Enjoyed at the brewery

Amber to brown in color; light head; serious lacing; tastes like cocoa, but not over the top; easy to drink; made with local honey, but honey flavor kind of hard to find; good slightly sweet flavor. Overall, another accessible offering by TP...
