3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I noticed their beer menu said this was brewed in "the brown porter" style. Another confused brew from Rock Bottom? Perhaps they figured porters wouldn’t sell, but browns appeal to the BMC crowd when they come in? Anyway, this was clearly more a porter than a brown ale, in terms of its flavors. They weren’t very strong, and as a porter it was somewhat weak in flavor, but the common porter flavors were definitely present. Not bad.

Fairly dark with a creamy tan head. Sweet nutty aroma. Some roasted character comes through that was not initially present. Same roasted malts in the flavor with the addition of some faint chocolate.

More or less a Newcastle. Pretty nice brown. Nice notes of carmel and nuts. Slightly watery, but would be a nice gateway to craftbeer.

Growler shared for Brother Eric’s 30th. Pours very deep brown with slight transparency and minimal beige head. Nose is mostly sour stale malt...but my palate is a little off due to the spicy cookout celebration. Flavor is smooth, mellow, slight choc malt and sweet nuttiness. Very good style and flavor. One of the better "year rounds" from this location.
