Bottle from Brusin’ Ales - reviewing from note - a solid, but a bit boring, brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bier Garden, Asheville. Amber-brown-black, looks unfiltered. Thin, oily beige head. Sweet dark malt aroma, a hint of dark fruit. A fruity amber stout, this is unique. Chocolate covered plum. Vanilla, chocolate. Quite reminiscent of Saranac;s Chocolate-Amber.

Could be a solid beer if not for the lack of an identifying flavor. A very bland beer

I’m not usually a brown ale fan, but this is awesome. Great chocolatey notes to this one and is remarkably smooth. A very easy drink and lighter than I would have thought.

On tap at Cabo Fish Taco, NoDa, Charlotte NC. Clear deep brown liquid with a nice head of white bubbles. Nose is light caramel malt with hints of nuts. Taste is lightly sweet malt that has a nice roasted middle taste resolving into a very faint hint of bitter. Good overall beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally reviewed: 4/10/12. 12oz bottle, "bottled on" notched on the side - January ’12.
Poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark chocolate brown with some ruby tint on the edges. Small tan head caps it off. The nose is sweet with fresh breads, mild chocolate tones, and a sugar-cookie whiff. Moderate depth, carbonation level is just a touch high for my liking, but not too bad. Nice bready flavors. Sweet malty toffee. Light bitterness. This beer is refreshing and a good one to cap off the night. Sweet, malty, tasty.
