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.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown, frothy 2" beige head, lace that settles back in. Taste is brown sugar malt that becomes syrupy sweet in the palate, barely showing hops at the end, certainly not enough to balance this overly sweet concoction. Lays heavy in the stomach with tons of sugar. Not a good one for me.

Can. Deep dark chocolate brown. Small head. Aroma was roasted grains with just a hint of chocolate. Taste was much more chocolate, roasted grains, and vanilla.

Pint can into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with a one finger light tan head. Leaves a bit of lacing that tends to slide back into the beer pretty quickly. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, toasted malts, and brown sugar. Taste is slightly bitter chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, toasted malts, molasses, and a bit of coffee. Body is medium, but the texture is thin and watery coupled with a slightly high carbonation. Finish is a little dry, but fairly long with malty brown sugar, mollasses and chocolate. Doesn’t taste like a brownie so much, but it is really good and has been growing on me with each sip. Tastewise it is a standout among porters, as I can’t remember a porter with quite this much taste. The only real downfall is the thin texture. Otherwise, great beer.

Dark brown pour with a small, tan head. It has an aroma of chocolate cake mix. The medium body has a creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet all throughout.

scotchzombie (520) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Clear red-tinged brown with a decent bubbled and foamy topped light tan head. Aroma is malty porter sour. Just eh. Taste is mediocre but improves with warming. Some roasted chocolate malts, grain and a touch of cocoa. Not really seeing the brownie- maybe a bit in the aftertaste. A touch of bitter. Better than run of the mill.

light reddish brown color; spicy, cinnamon aroma; roasted malt flavor with spice notes - cinnamon, mild vanilla, and brown sugar; not as sweet as I expected it to be; still, not a great combination of flavors

Can shared at catch 22 bottle share! Deep brown with bubbly tan head. Aroma and taste are sweet chocolate and vanilla with a touch of spice. Too sweet.
