COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your traditional brown ale. This is a big, bad, bold brown. It’s the intersection of a cabernet and an IPA. Or, say, 19th and Broadway. A blend of three oaks added during fermentation creates a red wine-like structure. California Cascade hops bring the local flavor that goes from roasted and bitter on first swig to a soulful, chocolate finish. Generally speaking, not for wussies. But who are we to say?

Aroma is caramel, honey and citrus. Very viscous and sweet body here with a sticky mouthfeel.Nice execution but not overly sessionable.

Dark brown, medium head. Looks nice. Big nutty malts, even a bit of alcohol...definitely a big brown. Soft and sweet, both toasty and nutty, and even then some nice brown sugar sweetness. The general size allows it to sort of throw all the classic brown ale elements at the wall without any real subtlety. So maybe not the most elegant brew, but pretty enjoyable if you're in the mood for something a little over the top.

PorterPounder (8313) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Emeryville, Ca - BevMo! - 22 oz bomber, Dark copper pour, slight haze; thin, bone colored head. Aroma has some dates, some nutty accents, a touch of chocolate. Solid flavor, some vanilla, a touch of baker’s unsweetened chocolate, some canned baked brown bread, finishes with a touch of caramel. Chewy, thick mouthfeel, Rating #46 of my 2017 Northern California vacation.
