COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Betchy Brown Ale, a brown ale that pours dark brown/ruby in color. Seven different types of malt are used, lending to a rich diverse flavor profile.

Draft... Pours clear, dark and deeply red with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Thick, creamy lace coats the rim of my glass. The olfactory highlights here are toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Light to medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. Roasty, toasty and decently-balanced, but not all that flavorful. There’s a hint of salt in the crisp, prickly, highly-carbonated finish.

growler, wet sticky malty grainy. tastes like dirt and water. A little roasty and very thin. Your average trying to make money screw taste brown ale.

This beer is brown... Offers dirt, caramel, and dry leaves. Finishes a bit sweet and odd. Not enjoyable really. Boring and a little off.

PorterPounder (5588) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - growler. Dark chestnut brown pour, quickly fading off-white bubbly white head. Aroma of bittersweet unsweetened chocolate notes, some light molasses notes. Flavor is subtly sweet with some brown sugar, a touch of milk chocolate, a hint of molasses and a caramel note in the back end, Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Went with with my Trader Joe’s Mushroom and Truffles pizza for dinner.

hotstuff (4139) - Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Rated on 3-01-2014 at Naples Craft Beer Fest in Naples, Florida. This beer pours a small tan head with a short retention, amber body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, caramel and nutty. The taste mimics the aroma with a hint of sweetness. This beer is light bodied. This is not one of the better brown ale beers that I have rated as the flavors are rather bland tasting and there is no WOW factor at all with this beer.

watery, bland, not much flavor. all the things you would expect from Cold Storage.

Tonkun (873) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Tap. Darn brown pour with a finger of mocha head. Caramel, coffee, toffee. Not a lot of depth in flavor. Caramel tastes artificial. Lighter than expected body. Short with vanilla caramel finish

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Tap at CCB. Smell malt and Carmel. Pours brown with nice two finger head. Taste Carmel, malt, cocoa and some nuttiness. Overall a beer that is drinkable.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours a clear copper brown on tap with thin cream head and good lacing. Aroma is caramel and nut brown, but light. Taste follows, thin and malty. Why does this place distribute?

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2013
Draft. Horrible smell and beer. This is meant to make money and has nothing that's stands out about it. I can tell because my wife almost likes it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
