On Tap at the Brooklyn Brewery. Not the best brown ale I’ve had by far but still pretty good. Great caramel-red color with a nice hop bitterness at the end. Tastes kind of chocolate-like reminding me a little of brown sugar and nutty. It s good and refreshing but nothing really special.

Coffee toffee malt butter cocoa all in there. Bottled frothed air when opened so i feared a bad one but ok. Chocolatey texture and winey finish too with raisins.

Cerveza tostada con caracter 100% americano. Color tostado muy oscuro con destellos caoba, filtrada. La espuma es de color marfil, escasa pero con buena retención. Buen equilibrio entre el dulzor de la malta el amargor del lúpulo. El aroma es suave, a café principalmente. Deja un sabor agradable y ligeramente amargo. Buena cerveza que cumple con las expectativas.
