COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A temptress that will seduce you, but leave your wallet feeling empty. Sweet Josie is crafted in the American Brown style. This is a complex beer balancing a nice hop bitterness with a generous amount of chocolate and aromatic malts.

Draft at Broadway Brewhouse. The pour is a brown on the lighter side. Don't get much at all from the aroma. The taste is a standard brown. I don't get any chocolate from it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit toasty, but not too sweet. I didn’t expect it to be that roasted. A bit like a maple bacon pretzel. A bit of a weird after taste like a hot dog to me. Looks like a pepsi

Westchesterco (1059) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown with a slight head. The aroma is malty and has a hint of pecans. The taste is of a strong root beer and it resonates on the palate. Mighty tadty

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz. can. It pours a pretty dark brown color with some dark orange at the edges and a disappearing khaki head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with some hints of bubblegum and mild notes of root beer. The flavor is more toasty with some nuttiness and pretty aggressive hop bitterness. Very simple and a little on the sweet side, but it does have a decent toasted, bitter finish.
