Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Del Mission Liquor in Hillcrest (San Diego), Calif. Price: 2-for-$5 Purchased: April 25, 2013 Consumed: April 25, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a mahogany brown color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Decent amount of sporadic and uneven layered lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down. Smelled roasted caramel notes first. Also nuts, toast, toffee and faint bitter chocolate notes. Had me wanting to come back for more. Not as much flavor in the taste like the nose. Roasty caramel, toffee, chocolate milk and nuts with bitterness hanging on the tongue after. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter, but still smooth finish. This beer had its moments, but it was missing something. A bit more flavor I would have rated it higher than a 3.5 (which may have a bit generous).

Fairly standard brown ale, I think. Good for pairing with the first grill session of the season. Very mild, good malt flavor, good finish. Nothing standout.

jehoesefat (270) - Poway, California, USA - APR 19, 2013
Smells like dessert! Caramel, chocolate and coffee. Clear red-brown color, foamy tan head. Taste is smooth and balanced, nice and chocolaty! Medium bodied, goes down slick. Very easy drinking, 8/10

rondphoto (1948) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours a clear deep amber with a light head, thin streaks of lace. The taste somehow reverses things: somewhat bitter chocolate malt grows through the palate into a warm caramel malt that lingers deep into the finish. Easy to drink.

Clean, slightly malty, definitely smooth with hints of xhocolate and almost a friity tone. Nice aftertaste!

BREWMUSKCLES (2228) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2013
a good brew described well as above the brew is mellow and has quite a bit of vanilla and caramel seems like a creamy cream soda with a bitter finish. finish lingers nicely.

Scrapersnbeer (1469) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2013
Aroma of coffee and cocoa. Clear reddish brown color. Starchy coffee taste, moderate bittering, not too sweet. A bit more spice and hop profile than your usual brown ale.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz bottle...brown w/ruby highlights and lt tan half inch head that quickly dissipates to a ring..minimal lacing. Aromas are predominately malt - caramel, brown sugar, roasted...some earthy hops. Medium and smooth body w/ avg carb. Flavors are light milk chocolate and caramel w/ some vanilla. Overall solid and pretty tasty but nothing overly exciting.

Braudog (5688) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Reddish-brown and quite active. Caramel is the predominate character. Super, super smooth, velvety even. Easy drinker with no obtuse, sticky sugars that sometimes burden brown ales. Very nice. (#4975, 4/7/2013)
