Florida, United States
funkybuddhabrewery.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The big sister to our Bonita Applebum Apple Pie Brown, Muy Bonita is a bigger, badder ‘bum. This double brown ale flaunts a bodacious body and a stunning combination of real cinnamon, vanilla, and apples. So thick, she’s like a hip hop song.

had this bottle for way too long, looked interesting tonight, so why not. brew is heavily carb bed so much so that the head was a bit explosive, eventually settled into a frothy creamy cap reminiscent of Belgian classics. on first sips and sniffs this was horrendously disgusting...but as it opened up and settled (and I got used to the prickly carbonation) the flavors popped creating a super artificial almost cake like thing. nose remains off putting w a strong char but the heavy vanilla on the taste seems to wash over the apple cinammon. the whole thing tastes REALLY artificial, as most of these do...and I find myself towing the line of wanting to pour it down the drain or have one more sip. interesting but the artificial is just too much for me on this one. prbably a fantastic bottle to open when 15 deep in a tasting and your palate is shot....cause this would definitely cut through.

A two finger tan head that is creamy, billowy, and foamy with good retention. The head did leave some lacing on the glass as it dissipated. A dark brown beer that is opaque. Few carbonation bubbles are visible on the glass.
A rich nutty toasted bready malt, vanilla, cinnamon, applesauce, chocolate, a fruity note, and some light coffee notes.
A rich nutty note, toasted bready malt, caramel, cinnamon, biscuit, cracker, toffee, applesauce, chocolate, a fruity note, light coffee note and a subtle sweetness.
Medium carbonation, Medium body and a medium plus finish.
I really like this beer has great flavors and it is easy to drink. Funky Buddha has some awesome beer with unique flavors. This beer is no different, at least this beer is not like the blueberry cobbler.
