3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour (near black) with thin off-white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, dark vinous overripe fruits, light vanilla pod, earthy notes, roasted malt. Taste is a big old hit of chocolate, light coffee, roasted malt, light vanilla pod, vinous/prune notes, earthy/herbal bitterness. Fairly full mouthfeel - great natural carb. Lingering chocolate and earthiness in the aftertaste. This is a first class American-inspired brown ale - BPBP are brewing some good stuff.

330ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a murky cola brown with a thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. Lovely enticing aroma of chocolate, grass and molasses. Medium chocolatey sweetness, and a light smoky undertone too. Quite well balanced. Smooth chocolatey finish with a lightly fizzy palate. Really great brown ale, very exciting stuff coming from the Brown Paper Bag Project!
