Growler from the Brookhaven Beer Growler. Nice, clear brown with a thin, tan head. Walnuts, black bread, mild chocolate, and some rye. Malty sweetness, with a good bitterness. Medium body, chalky, and sticky. Overall, this is a nice brown ale, with a good toasted aroma, with a mild flavor.

From site: 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.

Can: Pecan nose, light smoke. Cloudy brown, medium tan head. Milk chocolate and soil on the front end, lightly sweet. Drier tree bark and vanilla finish. Slight earthiness throughout. Medium body. Very well done ABA without heaping tons of hops into it. Malt forward with nice nuance and balance. Well rounded and sessionable with full flavor.

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.

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
