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.

Served in a snifter. Thanks, Chris! Some caramel and toast. Dry and quite a bit off. Very weird finish.

Draft @ RDU Indigo. Low aroma, a little sweetness. Dark brown color, white head, dissipates quickly. Taste is pretty sweet. Didn’t notice any hop bitterness. Med bodied. Overall, a pretty good American Brown. Not really my style.

tightslice (279) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
Can from Whole Foods Market in GA. Aroma is sweet, toasted malts, chocolate. Taste is a touch of hops with a nice malt underbelly. Very balanced...reminded me of something (anything) from Anchor

Pours dark brown with tan head from draft. Malty caramel sweet aroma with notes of raisins and plums. Peppery hop bitterness. Fairly full bodied with medium carbonation. Nice beer overall complex flavors and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours brown with a large off-white head. Smells of sweet malts, alcohol, and leaves. Taste is sweet malts, nuts, and banana. Yum.

Theydon_Bois (11491) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Keg at Jack Of The Wood, Asheville, 16/02/15. Chestnut brown with a decent light beige covering. Nose is toffee, biscuit, light chemical notes, cocoa powder. Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, nutty, light fruit rinds, cocoa rub. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light bitter trace. Whelming affair.

Old rating. Pretty standard brown. Nutty, some fruitiness, some milk chocolate, pretty sweet. Okay.

Tmoney99 (11582) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Can. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.

For an often boring style.. This is pretty good. Thanks shrubber85. Aromas of milk chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Nice sweet caramel and coffee flavors with a finishing hop bite.

Emeister84 (1405) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Aromas are grapey, caramel, fig, toast, some chocolate. Somewhat clear, brown, minimal head fades pretty quickly. Mostly dry, fruity, plum, nutty, bitterness as it finishes creates a pleasant balance. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

Aroma: It has a sweet aroma of chocolate, toffee, and caramel malts.
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish-brown color with a beige head and decent lace.
Flavor: It has a fairly sweet flavor, with a minimal bitterness.
Palate: Has a creamy mouthfeel, light-medium bodied, clean and easy drinking.
Overall Impression: Thought this was pretty decent but not amazing. Definitely worth trying. Could use a little balance.
