Tap at the lounge. After finishing my sampler flight I decided it wasn’t quite time to leave even though it was quarter to 2 in morning on Monday night. So I upped the abv so I could hopefully sleep later. Pours nice brown with malty and nutty nose. Tastes of coffee, nuts, malt, earth, and burnt toast. Decdent brown ale hides alcohol well

Nice smokey aroma. Sweet dark smokiness in flavor. Enjoyable in flavor. Dark Carmel comes through to make an easy drinking high gravity enjoyable beer

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head and fat bubbles scattered about. The chocolaty, nutty nose offers a faint vinous note. Medium to full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, consisting mainly of cocoa and ethanol. Finishes burnt and bitter with an alcohol burn. Rough around the edges, this one. Not a typical Buddha effort.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Buddha. Very similar to their Doc Brown but just amped up a little. With the ABV being at 9.8% you’d think it be a little boozy, however that just isn’t the case. Drinks like a standard brown ale with a nice caramel/brown sugar finish. Very good showing here.
