3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pre-pour thoughts. So, brown ales are not among my favorite styles. I saw this bottle, and I loved the label. I totally love the fact that "Ellie" was honored with her own beer. I also chuckled at the thought that this was "Lab Tested." Is that in a lab? Or by a lab? Either way, Iíd like to know the results of that test. I know, I know...still makes me chuckle.
Pours a dark cola brown. I can almost see through it, About one finger beige head. Quite nice lacing on the glass.
Aroma is some vanilla, not real strong. I smell brown sugar, or perhaps more so the molasses. Itís malty, and slightly chocolatey.
Taste is quite malty. Thereís also a good bit of nuts of some type. Thereís some chocolate, but not a lot. At the end, I taste the molasses. The molasses leaves a slight bitterness on the tongue.
Mouthfeel is medium, yet heavy. Itís easy drinking. Itís sweet, itís bitter, then sweet, then bitter. Itís a tongue twister.
Overall, itís pretty good. Itís a decent brown, maybe even a good brown. I think I could have this again. I would take this over Newcastle. However, I would have trouble deciding between this or a new one. Hey, if nothing else, try it and think about your own "Ellie" while you drink it.
Hey, I wonder how beer labels with cats would work?

Aroma is molasses and a hint of wood smoke. Taste is mainly molasses, a little hint of nuts, and something else I canít quite place. This would be great in the fall, but itís pretty damn good right now too.
