A- Pours a definite brown with hints of red. Thin slightly tanned head last pretty well, with just notes of lacing.
S- Smells of chocolate, slightly nutty, some caramel.
T- Well balanced. Some chocolate, chestnut, caramel.
M- Finishes definitely dry. Medium body.
D- A decent brown. Nothing outstanding, but balanced and easy drinking.

Went to Bosco's Squared in Memphis while visiting my fiancee this last week. Really wanted to try their Hefe, but they have apparently stopped brewing it, even though it was still on the menu. Opted for this instead.

Served on tap into a pint glass

A: Deep brown in color (expected for a brown ale) with a tan head which stuck around for a decent amount of time, gave way to some decent lacing.

S: Great smell, hints of chocolate, malt, hint of caramel and maybe a little bit of coffee or espresso.

T: Decent taste. Malty, chocolate, pretty bitter. Not great, but not terrible either.

M: Creamy, a little carbonation but not too much.

D: Sippable. Took me awhile to get through, but as I'm finding out, I'm not a huge fan of brown ales.

Overall: I enjoyed this beer once, but I probably wouldn't have it again. That's not to say it's bad, it's just not my preference.

Very nice brownie served up in the classic shaker pint glass - a clear mahogany brown with a rich topping of tan. Also rich in the aroma with plenty of chocolate malt. Big brown here, as it packs in chocolate, caramel, even a hint o coffee all back by a sturdy malty backbone. Thick and rich body, this frostys must be packing 200 + calories a pint! Nice!
This was one fine brown ale, I could drink these all day or night if ever given the opportunity.
