3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty aroma - very fruity (cherry, plum, raisins, dates), light cocoa, straw and Red Man. Longneck, lousy label. Clear, dark ruby brown beer. Filmy tan head. Tastes of dilute cocoa and dates, moderate bittering, mild coffee/roast. Buffered/chalky mouthfeel though there’s some astringency in there. Drinkable, but didn’t have clockwork complexity. ABC, Betton.

A deep red pour with lacing one finger tan head. Aroma is very pleasing with notes of caramel, bread, and slight hop bitterness. Flavor is moderately sweet with a dry bitter average lasting finish. Overall a pretty great brown ale.

The fourth wiseman got left at the cantina because the other three didn’t think sweet baby jesus in a manger should know just yet that he was the messiah. Fast forward 2000 years and this beer was then given to Stevie Wonder, who after his first initial sip, could see again for 3.3 seconds, hence the rating.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Deep almost black pour with a thin tan head that leaves a slight ring. Aroma is toasted malts, nutty, caramel. Tastes are the same with a yeasty twang to it - little metallic. I think that actually kept it from being too sugary for me - typical for browns and me. Decent.

Pours a dark bourbon brown with a one-finger tan head. Rich caramel, toffee, and chocolate nose. Texture is surprisingly thin and carbonated given the nose. Horehound, toffee, and a bit of nuttiness in the flavors.
