COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hello, my name is Caramel God. This American Brown Ale has five hundred pounds of burnt caramel in it, provided by Toscanini’s Ice Cream in Cambridge, MA. Pray to whoever you will or worship me as I hover over a sea of endless ice cream cones. Either way, may you find enlightenment.

650ml bottle from Rayans in Andersonville. Cellared 3 months. Deep brown pour with a tan head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has caramel and sweet caramel, and more caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some brown sugar in this one, but also some of the cie cream topping caramel as well. Tasty stuff, if one-dimensional. Sweet finish. Shrug? Very tasty for style. 13.8

Pours a transparent light cola brown with a thick, frothy, and somewhat persistent light tan head. Aroma is not strong, but tempts with roast malt and caramel notes. Flavor, happily, is much bolder, with strong malty and caramel notes, plus nutty and hoppy hints - and an alcohol bite stronger than "mere" 7% should give, more like that of a barleywine or wheatwine. Texture has average viscosity but some good fizz, leaving a caramel and slightly smoky finish. Thank you, Caramel God, for Your divine blessing.

22oz bottle. Dark muddy brown color. Sweet malts. No flavor, very dry. Where’s the 500lbs of sweet caramel? Tastes like a Brown Ale. (4255)

22oz. Bottle, split 3 ways, purchased at 7-11 Kittery ME. Dark amber color with thin white head. Aroma is molasses, toasted nuts and caramel to boot!

The flavor is spot on what you would expect to find from the name of the beer. Caramel candy, toffee, roasted nuts with a ridiculous amount of sweetness. Some sort of hop or bittering unit would help this greatly. Slick sticky syrupy texture in a medium body. It is what is advertised but really a one trick pony.

22oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head. Thin palate with lots of carbonation which makes it seem soda like. The caramel is much more subtle than the description lends to believe. Interesting brown but not one I can get very excited about. Just OK.

Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma is very light but pick up a sweet maltiness. Appearance is a dark cloudy burnt orange wiith a slight tan head that vanishes quickly. Taste is good and very drinkable. I can pick up some caramel amongst the typical brown ale flavor. It finishes with a slight "burnt" bitter taste. Palate is ok with good carbonation. Overall I liked it alot and would purchase again and is one of my favorite brown ales. One worth trying. Cheers.

Poured from a bomber purchased at Whole Foods into a pint glass brownish red with a thin head. Aroma is brown ale slightly sweet & malty. Flavor is good very good and I am not a fan of brown ales. Some caramel here but not overwhelming. Considering how much burnt caramel was used you think it would be HUGE--not. Biscuit finish slightly bitter. Nice thickness to this brew which settled well to the palate. Really like this brew & easy to drink. Would happily consume again.

Bomber. Pours a dark murky brown with thin ivory head. Aroma of dark cocoa hint of caramel and roaste malts. Totally missing the caramel... Where are you caramel???? Disappointing. Very dry and plain.

(bottle - 22 oz) Brown pour with a tan head. Sweet caramel and malt aroma. Flavor is a standard malty brown ale with a touch extra caramel sweetness.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Aroma is light brown sugar. Med body or nearly. Flavor seemed to start burnt sugar, then seemed to go towards cola. Might be a touch phenolic. Somewhat bitter. Finishing dryer than expected. Different.
