Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - bottle - split with Aurelius. Murky dark orange pour, bubbly, soft white head. Some vanilla, light spiciness and cake mix in the aroma. Cake mix maltiness in the flavor, some slight vegetable funkiness, yeasty, cloying sweetness. Smooth mouthfeel. Had better brown ales.

Bad label, muddy-ruddy brew. Vanilla, cakey, woody aroma. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Effervescent, woody, medium heavy body. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 360mL bottle. Cloudy, brown with beige head. Mild caramel malt and toasted malt with subtle floral hops, flavour finishes with an interesting sticky, sweet-ish tamarind/toffee like taste. Quite an interesting blend, tastes good, but a little bit odd.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours brown-amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is molasses and not quite (almost) chocolaty malts. Taste is heavy sweet malts up front with a bitter hoppy twang taking over the mid palate and leading to a steady bitter finish. Tastewise, this could almost be a black IPA, but the color’s all wrong. A great brown, however, packed with flavor.

Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark brown amber, little head on the sides. Smells of sweetish candy, fruity,.. Tastes of bitter grapefruit, caramel, blueberries, herbs, candy, cocoa,… Thick body. Nice stuff.
