Bottle sent by artmcd8, thanks! Pours a murky dark brown with a thin tan head, aroma is pretty intense, tons of dark chocolate mixed with molasses and some leather too, the flavor has a malt forward front end with a sweet caramel like finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff.

Brown Ale, sound boring... Well that's usually because it is... Until you drink voodoos Big Brown Betty and you realize, this is why everyone try's to make a brown ale! It just happens that most people fail miserably. In my experience the flavor of BBB does vary a bit batch to batch but it never disappoints and when it's on, it is simply transcendent

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours decently with a nice reddish brown hue that passes through very little light, has a one finger brown head that disappates somewhat quickly, and minimal lacing on the glass. The beer smells decently with chocolate malts up front followed by a blended hoppy scent. The beer tastes great with a nice malted/hoppy flavor that gives away to a chocolate malt finish. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is carbonated very well and leaves you somewhat clean. Overall, a decent brown ale that appeals a chocolate lovers palate.

22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a darker brown with a thin beige head of foam. Aroma is rich milk chocolate, mocha, marshmallow, nougat. Reminds me a lot of a three musketeers bar. Taste is pretty sweet. Dry-ish finish. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at HOTB. Pours an extremely cloudy brown color like chocolate milk. I'm not sure what's going on with this, looks like shitty toilet water. Nutty aroma. Some coffee. Slight bitter taste.

22 oz. bottle from a trade. Deep brown color with thin white head. The nose is dominated chocolate malts with peanuts skins and molasses. Real nice nose. Flavor is pretty much the same with the addition of some toffee and a mild Earthy hop. Medium-full body with a slight creamy texture. A very good brown ale, above average.
