Notes: What we have here is a Brown Ale that’s smoother than silk and brewed with the balance ol’ Cooter Brown himself never had. Caramel and Chocolate notes with a creamy head are ready for your ‘stache.

From the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass via a friend from work---Thanks Randy!
This toasty beast pours a brown with light cola highlights and a very nice head of
dissipating off white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin sudsy layer, and features
some very nice sudsy lacing. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, and nutty malts
with a touch light coffee. Flavors hit the right notes for the style with a deeply roasted
nutty malt flavor that has light notes of dark cocoa and hints of light coffee bitterness with
a subtle herbal hop on the rear of the taste. Very nice mouth feel with medium carbonation
that is lightly crisp, medium body, and a malty finish. Overall a fantastic little brew from a new
brew to me and the little lady.

Cheers!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is surprisingly full of hops that go well with the malt.

Pours an opaque brown producing 3 fingers of frothy, tan, somewhat lasting head that leaves thin rings & streaks of pasty lacing. Aroma is dark malt, toast & a little roastiness, semisweet cocoa & an earthy mustiness. Taste is full & robust fronted by unsweetened cocoa, toasted brown bread, hints of roasted nuts, brown sugar & raisins, finishing & bitter with roast & burnt hints. Aftertaste is burnt bread, caramel & bitter cocoa finally fading to little more than char & bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy, with a moderate prickle & dry in the finish & aftertaste. There is an earthy note that is unique in this brew that I do not remember encountering in this style previously. A different & interesting brown ale.
