3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap somewhere or another. Pours brown with red highlights and a lasting tan foam head. Aroma of bruned butterscotch, breadcrust, yeast, sourdough, and rye. Toasted dark rye flavor, caramel, unsweet cocoa, light astringency. Finishes with a good toasted pecan flavor. Creamy body and light to medium body. Satisfying and drinkable, and definitely a brown ale that isn’t half-assed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sixpoint Brownstone Ale is dark brown with a small head. Hoppy, grass aroma - nothing too special in this department. Smoky licorice and caramel flavors greet the tongue. The Ale is bitter and quite hoppy. There’s not much carbonation, but that could potentially due to the tap it came from. However, this made the beer pretty easy to consume given it’s hop presence. The ending is very dry with hints of grass and dark chocolate.
