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.

Taste- This is the kind of beer I love. Dark, brown, malty, little or no hops. Would prefer a little more carbonation. Delicious mild roast malt glavor

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.

32 oz - counter pressure filled growler - poured into a BHB snifter.

A - Deep brown with salted peanut hues. Thin beige head with OK lacing.

S - Fresh coffee, roasted peanuts and light chocolate notes. Light grassy hop notes. Really smells amazing.

T - Slight burnt toast, hints of your typical dark malt flavor profiles like chocolate and toffee in there with a moderate hop bitterness.

M - Light and drying finish that makes this a super drinkable beer. I made the mistake of saying that Cooter is poundable -- free joke for everyone out there in BA land.

O - An solid, drinkable brown ale. Would recommend.

16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Hop Alley in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Displays a dark brown body, though there're some amber-gold hints at the edges. Foamy, faintly beige head.

Smell: Heavily toasted bread, there's a thin edge of coffee roastiness. Minor cocoa powder, faint caramel. Lightly fruity, low herbaceous hop notes.

Taste: Falls in the middle ground between toasty and roasty, with inclusions of lightly sweet chocolate and caramel. Soft fruitiness, a little raisin and cooked apple. Light herbal hops with sufficient bitterness to balance. Drying, toasty (oh, but still a bit roasty) on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Solid, likable brown ale.
