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.

Brown Ale’s are typically not my style of beer, but this was one of my favorites behind Rogue’s Brown Nectar Ale. Appearance is a typical dark brown color with nice carbonation. Aroma- Smell of toffee and caramel malts with a slight nuttiness. Taste- Like the aroma. I get roasted and caramel malts typical of a brown ale. Medium body and a nice bitterness at the end of the palate. Overall a nice sessional brown ale. I give it a B. Not outstanding, but nowhere near being terrible. It’s worth checking out.

Mahogany body with a ring of head. Thin brown malt aromatic nuances waft off the glance and are spiced with a pinch of walnut. Medium to thin bodied. Walnut and brown malt flavors dominate. Dry, beery underpinning with nut bitterness throughout. Sweet candi malt on the finish.

Dark brown with a beige head. The aroma contains some chocolate and toffee. The flavor is a bit dry with more chocolate and toffee. A bit of sour grapes in the finish. Overall an ok brown but nothing special,

On tap at Closed for Business. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet hazlenut, sweet malt. Flavor of roasted malt, light coffee/hazelnut notes, chocolate, sweet finish. Pretty decent brown, slightly more complex than your average example of the style. On the roastier side, almost a light porter. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)
