Draft... Cloudy brown pour with burnt-orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a lush swirl of sweet caramel, milk chocolate, figs, dates and tea biscuits. Medium to full-bodied and silky with airy carbonation. The flavor is of sweet, dark-dried fruits and minerals. A tad cloying and odd. Enjoyable, but its drinkability is low.

Can. Pours a dark brown beige head. The aroma is chocolate and brown sugar. Thin mouth with nice brown sugar and molasses, decent.

Apalachicola can for race weekend. Nice aroma that’s like slightly sweetened coffee. High carbonation that adds some acidity but you can taste the coffee and chocolate still. No hints of infection in my can. Nice.

Brown pour, tan head. Not sure what to make of this. Underneath the odd metallic and lightly sour notes I get what is probably a solid brown. Infected? Im guessing so.

loads of caramel and a machine oil like flavor that pairs well with the body and palate which is thick, almost chewy and foamy. perhaps a bit of butterscotch the brew is quite beery. long wd-40 in the finish.

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks to Santa. The aroma is sour/acidic chocolate, soft nutty character, bready/toasted malts. The flavor is chocolate, soft notes of brown sugar that are dominated by a sour bite. I am thinking this is infected, it is the first can I opened that was a gusher.

Filled a growler from the local ABC. Color is a nice dark brown but somewhat translucent. Aroma and taste are the same in light sugar and malts. Very sweet, more of a saison style. Not one of my favorites.

On tap at Green Bench. I picked this one at random off of their tap list. Nose is brown sugar, piloncillo, light vanilla, a Belgian yeast-like aroma? Sweet malts. Flavor is similar, very sweet, big brown sugar notes, plums, malt heavy. Not bad.

Like the concept..... Really like the concept. A sweetened brown ale, what can go wrong? Well apparently a lot. Appreciate the risk CCB but back to the drawing board. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
