3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Draft… RBSG 2014... Hazy dark-brown pour with mahogany highlights and a brief, white head. The aroma is loaded with coffee and provides just enough chocolate to create an excellent mocha character. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is rich and roasty with heaps of hearty mocha and a slight caramel component. Lengthy coffee finish with a light kiss of butterscotch in the aftertaste.

Pours dark brown with a mahogany hue and a tan head. The aroma has lots of nuttiness, dark caramel and a brown sugar aspect that has a dryness to it. Medium body with light carbonation. The flavor starts with nuttiness, toasty smooth malt, spicy hops and some chocolate. The finish is smooth and rich without being sweet. Nicely done brown ale.

Brown sugar, slight coffee, some chocolate, toasted malts. Really nice slight roast.
Similar to the nose. Perfect amount of malts and sweetness. Brown sugar, chocolate, toasted malts, hint of roast. All very well done and put together nicely.

The aroma of this beer is a fairly simple yet nice blend of roasted and caramel malts, and the color is a cloudy brown color with a medium off-white head. The taste is very pleasing due to the mild umami, slight sweetness, and touch of sourness, and the palate complements this nicely with the medium body, slick texture, malty finish, and soft carbonation.

On tap @ The Civil Life. Brown in color with an off-white head. Nose of roasted malt, cocoa powder, and coffee. Quite earthy and a touch spicy. Sort of bittersweet on the palate. Roast, burnt nuts, chocolate, and earthy hops. A little bit of grass. Good toffee and molasses as well.

tap@ brewery during RBSG 2014: Slightly hazy brown with a firm white head and okay lace. Nutty, caramel, faint chocolate and roasted coffee along with light handed but noticeable resiny fruity hop juxtaposition. Yep it is indeed an American Brown Ale in all it’s glory. Tossup between this and the Milk Stout for my carry out... the Milk Stout won in extra time.
