picked up a growler at the brewery this past weekend. this was brewed for the seinfeld themed beer dinner at morrison's that recently went down. yada yada yada is the My Creation brown ale with snickers added during the brewing process!!! had a taste and had to get a fill of this amazing beer. enjoyed from a beer hunter snifter.

a - through the clear growler the beer is deep brown, almost black...pours more of a brown but settles dark, thick creamy dark brown head is gone quick...immediately and fully gone leaving a few sparse bubbles on the surface.

s - snickers. period. rich lush chocolate peanut caramel. absolutely stunning.

t - again, snickers. i can't believe what i am tasting. snickers in a beer. there is some brown sugar and crystalized malt in the background, but the snickers are driving this beer. some roast in between the snicker and the brown ale.

m - prickly carbonation...but smooth drinker.

o - i wouldn't believe that this could be pulled off as well as it was if i didn't have it myself. my gut would've guessed this to be done in a stout, but the brown ale is the perfect match for those flavors. one of the most unique and delicious beers i have had in a while. i'd say go hunt it down, but this one might be extinct at this point??? hoping this makes a return and is in regular rotation...bottles of this would be sublime. extremely happy to have gotten the chance to try this. what a pleasant surprise.

Poured from Growler into Snifter. Was super anticipated to try this beer. My Creation (his Brown Ale that is fucking crack and my favorite he brews) mixed with snickers. Had a pint at the brewery as well for his opening.

A - Very dark almost black in color with a nice 1 & 1/2 in. Mocha colored head that went away pretty fast and left a small ring which also went away super fast. A little bit of bubbles comes up with a very thin skin.

S- Roasty, Milky Chocolate and a super strong smell of some kind of nut or mix of nuts. I smell mostly peanut. Slight caremel tint to it with some roast thrown in. Not a resemblense to my creation aside from the chocolate. The snicker smell was super strong. The smell completely blew me away. I knew it would smell good based on how Steve brews but I had no idea it would smell this strong and good.

T- Oh my god... melted snickers in a beer. That is the taste description. Mainly chocolate dominated but nutty with caremel and a Roasty finish with the roast lingering on.

M- Medium to heavy bodied, slightly creamy with a nice smooth finish.

O- Steve is becoming one of my favorite brewers regardless of location. I've had some world class beers and this guy is brewing world class stuff. He's on top of his game and has unique beers.. not unique in the sense of 1000 year old recipes but a Frickin snickerd brown ale... a oatmeal raisin cookie beer... this guy is no joke and I'm glad to be so close. This beer is extremely good gets the bonus points for just nailing the taste. Seek this one out...

The beer comes in a dark brown color.

The aroma is tons of roasted peanut, milk chocolate.

The flavor follows of roasted peanut, bitter chocolate, onto a fatty peanut butter like a Reese's cup. There's cocoa flavor on the back. The beer is robust and drinks towards a porter than a brow ale.

Pours a dark brown with a half inch off-white head. Smells and tastes like a snickers bar. Very unique flavor profile that really works. Moderately carbonated with a very creamy mouth feel.

Appearance: Arrives fudge brown with a rather modest head that leaves a few shards of lacing behind

Smell: Roasted peanut and milk chocolate with caramel tone

Taste: Peanut and milk chocolate flavors, up front, with the chocolate aspect building in the middle; the Snickers clearly come through but there is an odd tartness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body; somewhat creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: A fun beer, but I wasn't expecting the tartness in the finish; clean that up and it is a winner
