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.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-brown color with a medium tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light to medium body with a sweet roasty character and notes of bready malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet and malty. Decent overall.

chinchill (1378) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 An unusually dark brown ale, with the corresponding flavor: i.e., darker roast malt with a hint of smoke. Sweet and bitter in near equal proportion. Nice, lasting aftertaste of dark malt with a bit of spicy hops. Overall: A well-crafted brown ale that leans towards a porter.

Pours clear dark brown with an off-white head. Sweet nutty malt aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet, nutty. A little thin but better than many.

Mahogany appearance with a small beige head and good lacing. Roasted malt aroma of caramel and chocolate. Sweet malt flavors, moderately hopped, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well rounded, medium-to-full bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel.

Best up front for me. Looks appealing, dark brown with reddish tint and a tan head. Nice aromas of light chocolate, fresh bread and some cookie sweetness. Well balanced brown ale but I found it just a little thin and leaving perhaps just a bit too much hop bitterness. Still, a solid brown ale.

POurs dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roast. Taste is sweet with some bitters coming through. Smoother then anticipated for a brown ale.

12 oz. Bottle. Great brown! The only weakness was the aroma, which was a very fain dark chocolate scent. Other than that, solid on all accounts. Dark brown pour, like weathered leather, with a white head. Medium bodied, creamy texture. Chocolate and toffee notes in the taste.
