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

Pours a hazy translucent brown from the can with fluffy tan brown head that lasts. Aroma is nutty and a hint of acrid roast. Taste is much better, molasses and caramel, nutty middle, burnt sugar ending. Nice smooth mouth with good carbonation, a little sweet. Better than its rating on here.

From notes. Pint pour, medium brown with mild head. Nose is sweet malt, lightly nutty, some caramel. Flavor follows with little to no hop. Very smooth and drinkable. For a name like ’nare sugar’ it’s got plenty of sweetness go keep it going.

Sorry but this was not what I expected for a six-pack from Southwest Florida. Mild chocolate smell with some alcohol and what I think is modeling glue. Muddy light color, huge sandy head that completely disappears. Some carbonation and agitation brings bubbles back but fleetingly. No front character on the tongue and what taste there is is also fleetingly and semi-sweet. Initially I had a sour slightly bitter after-taste that later became slightly astringent. A taste not worth the price of six. (So I’ll have some more of my BeerCamp to wash away the memories!)

Pours dark brown with a huge white head. Aroma of brown sugar, sweet malt, bitter English hops. Taste is overly sweet, brown sugar and molasses with a touch of hops that in no way balances the beer. Not great.

I'm not a fan of the aroma, it's smells too slinky, the color is a nice dark brown with taste of sugar malts and caramel. Not to hoppy but nice overall for a session ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
