otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Deep browns yet clear at the same time – like espresso wood. Bubbly khaki head fades into a broken film with a thick collar. Swirls with some lacey spots.
Nose: Dark fruits and tart chocolates. Tobacco leaf along the edges. Pumpernickel and fruitcake. Black licorice root. Burnt pecan praline. Prunes and raisins.
Palate: Dryer than the nose implied but still flavorful and robust. Toasted nuts and pumpernickel toast. More bitter nuts in the back. Dried raisins and black licorice root in the middle. Charcoal and burnt chocolates in the back.
Final Thoughts: A traditional brown ale with an American twist – a fitting tribute to the veritable Pete(r) Brown whose books site proudly on my shelf. Once again, Bear Republic does not disappoint. I’m not sure if they will brew this beer again, but I certainly hope they do.
