COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The malt bill of this brew is comprised of seven different malts for a very complex base. We add brown sugar to the boil which will increase the alcohol content and give the beer a molasses flavor. Cinnamon is then added to the whirlpool to finish. Finally, the beer is aged on Tahitian vanilla beans and Ecuadorian cacao nibs for a true brownie flavor.

16oz tallboy from Xroads. Poured a light brown with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma of cocoa puffs, dry brown toast, dusty grains, newspaper. Flavor is milk, dusty chocolate malts, brown toast, nut shell. Body is fizzy carbonation that really fills your mouth and a milky mouthfeel. Drinkable but entry level stuff here.

16oz can from Crossroads. Pours a dark brown/almost black color. Aroma of roasted malt, hints of bad chocolate, wet dog, cardboard, and a hint of cinnamon. Taste is slightly metallic, with notes of roasted malt, sour day old coffee, bad chocolate, cola syrup, and hints of fudge and cinnamon in the aftertaste.

Can.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Opaque brown through the center with clear vibrant mahogany hues on the edges. The head is tall, tan and creamy.
Aroma: A little bit of cinnamon, chocolate and vanilla. Rather mild and muddled.
Taste: Light roasted barley, hints of cinnamon, hints of cocoa and big vanilla by the finish. A but muddy and artificial, but not bad.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not an awful beer, but itís not cohesive. I would drink this if handed to me, but I doubt Iíd buy again.

[Bottle] Very deep brown color is almost black. Small but lasting beige head. Sweet cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg make appearances in the aroma. Very similar flavor profile. Body is slightly better than expected. Lingering roasted malt and mineral notes.

Porter on a 90 degree day??? Spotted this in the store today and since I had never tried it figured why not. Dark brew with really nice tan head. Smells like brown sugar and bread. Taste is chocolate with a hint of vanilla. The name is spot on because this does taste alot like a chocolate brownie. Excellent brew at a reasonable price. Hope to find it in the store come October and when it is around 70 or less outside.

beerbaaron (1546) - Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pours clear brownish amber. Large frothy creamy light brown head, fairly lasting with nice lacing. Aroma projects cinnamon, accompanied by vanilla and chocolate lingering in the shadows. Flavor matches. Medium body. Semi-sweet. No bitterness really. This is all cinnamon sugar for me.. Not unpleasant but not exactly all that enjoyable either..

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark brown with a ruby hue. Aroma of chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Dark chocolate with a hint of coffee and cinnamon. Insert where they get the "brownie" from. Itís almost like a brownie made with bittersweet chocolate. Pretty good.
