RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Deep, dark, translucent brown colour. Foamy tan head, but little retention and no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, toffee, caramel, and a hint of roasted coffee. Taste is a sweet, notes of toffee, roasted nuts, a hint of chocolate, and a faintly bitter coffee finish. Full body, thick textures, fizzy carbonation and a long, sweet finish. Actually quite impressed with this one, has a lot of character and flavour and isn’t too heavy or rich.

ryecatcher (1348) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bomber. Pours a nearly p[aque deep cestnut brown, fluffy white head with solid retention and lacing. Nose is malt, cocoa, roast, som ebutterscotchy notes. Mouth is medium bodied, slight sweetness, lots of malty goodness, coffee, Tootsie Roll, puffed wheat. I’m admittedly not a huge fan of Brown ales, but thhis is actually rather tasty and very drinkable.
