chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
12-oz bottle Pours a rich mahogany brown with a medium tan head with good lacing an retention. Aroma is OK with dark fruits predominating. There is a pungent roastiness as well. Taste is where this beer excels. Not as sweet as some browns, with a subtle sourness in the midtaste that morphs into a hoppy, smoky bitterness. The smoke flavor hangs in there in the finish. If you like smoky brews, and I do, this is a very fine brown. But it seems to me more in the style of a very smooth dry stout. Mouthfeel is medium and a little sticky. Very drinkable. The bitter smoky finish adds an intriguing quality to this brown. I was surprised to find this brew in a attractively priced six-pack. I will be keep in these in the fridge for as long as they are available.

TET (2875) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
A reddish dark brown beer, a head is medium, dense and light beige. Taste has breadyness, sweetness of syrup, some chocolate. Taste has bread, some chocolate, smooth maltyness, also some bitterness. Medium bodied, greatly fluffy. This style isnt my favourite, but this is good. The glass was empty too soon.

Exactly as it claims- hints of toffee, caramel and espresso. More flavor than you would ever expect from a brown ale. Another CC staple. Sad the company is selling out to corporate ovelords. The new American Dream- create something awesome and special and then incorporate the shit out if it. Lets hope the awesome brews dont get lost on their quest to reach more people who probably dont give a shit. Drink local, be happy.

josanguapo (1432) - SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017
From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x06. Notes between smoke and wood that reminds a cigar (maybe a suggestion from the name?) And some nuts. Nice fullfilling body and bitter finish
