Ordered this based on the description on the menu and it lived up to it.
Love the vanilla aroma with the mild chocolate notes...came from the tap so the carbonation was lower than a typical bottle which was preferrable.

I don't see a date listed anywhere on this can.

Appearance: The body is the color of a dark brown tea. It is mostly opaque but it gives semi-transparent glances through dark reddish-brown edges. It has a short, creamy textured, tobacco stained yellow-tan head that has moderate retention and no real lacing.

Aroma: The beer has a very sweet smelling caramel and butterscotch aroma.

Taste; There's more of that butterscotch and caramel character in the flavor here. This is a pretty odd beer because it kind-of has an ESB style flavor but it totes itself as a "MOCHA BROWN ALE" on the can, where it doesn't taste like mocha...I'm not sure if this is supposed to taste like brown sugar given the title of the beer but it doesn't. It really isn't as good as a standard run-of-the-mill brown ale either. It's just this buttery caramel-laden mess. It does taste very sweet so it might appeal to those with a sweet tooth but it simply lacks any base malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: There is a medium body with a light touch of chalk.

Overall: It just wasn't a very good beer. It is fairly one-note with the caramel flavor. I wouldn't recommend it based on my experience and I wouldn't buy it again.

-std. pint glass serving. Chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, lactose, and coffee brown ale.

A: Murky ice tea coloring has a short lived fizzy, dirty beige capping. Some macro-carbonation bubbles, reminds me of a long island ice tea.

S: Rich experience on the nose. Milky caramel chocolate is rich, sweet, backed by some vanilla. Milky chocolate of good awareness.

T: Earthy caramel-coffee bean flavor, with strong highlights of milky chocolate base and vanilla bean. Mocha and cocoa powder, milk chocolate, with some lactose and sweet brown sugar. There is a nice presence of fresh speciality coffee beans, really nice brown ale base, sweet, with all ingredients equally expressed and represented here.

M: Milky medium full mouthful, good carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

O: Sweet dessert style brown ale with vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate all blending beautifully together. Is there such a thing as a halloween beer? if not this fits the bill nicely.

Appearance: pours a dark brown color with a 1/2" head.

Smell: somewhat sweet and sugary.

Taste: malt forward beer with a big dose of brown sugar, ripe dark fruits, and a moderate bitteress.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish.

Overall: this beer was a bit too sweet for my liking, somewhat unbalanced.

I can't peg down the flavor but it's sweet, that's for sure. Amy thinks it's smells like vanilla and chocolate. It's lighter colored that I would have thought and only slight head from tap. Similar taste from the nose but some heat on this beer too. I also thought that it was watery.

Maybe I had a bad batch. Will try again in the future and revise my review.

It just tasted so unbalanced and had a very astringent metallic taste.

Tried on several occasions just to make sure it wasn't off balance because of what I ate or how I was feeling that day.
