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.

PorterPounder (6138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Pours a deep chocolate-like dark brown with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma has some light chocolate accents, some nuttiness, a touch of licorice. Flavor is pleasantly sweet with some cocoa accents, a touch of licorice, a hint of molasses. Mouthfeel is a bit on the starchy side, but not a major detractor. Decent.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle pour of dark copper with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of deep roasted chocolate malt with a hint of floral spice. Taste of sweet chocolate malt with a hint of spice that play of the carbonation that leads into an herbal earthy hop. Lively med body that dances on the tongue and finishes with a short herbal hop. Overall smooth drinking brown that is light enough for sipping anytime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Nice looking brown pour with a light tan head. Roasted malt and slightly sweet smelling nose. Sweet malt taste fades to roasted malt and slight bitter chocolate and slight hop bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 overly malty with hints of chocolate that feels unbalanced. The beer poured a bit flat as well, maybe just a bad experience

jandd1983 (3123) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Tommy Condons. It poured a reddish/brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of nuts and some brown sugar. The taste was a little hoppy for a brown ale with a bitter aftertaste. Decent.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent brown with ample foamy beige head. Smells of malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel that’s on the lighter side for the style. A pretty good brown ale.
