COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The malt bill of this brew is comprised of seven different malts for a very complex base. We add brown sugar to the boil which will increase the alcohol content and give the beer a molasses flavor. Cinnamon is then added to the whirlpool to finish. Finally, the beer is aged on Tahitian vanilla beans and Ecuadorian cacao nibs for a true brownie flavor.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a amber/brown sort of color with a barely any head. The aroma had some caramel, burnt chocolate, coffee grounds and cooked dark fruit. The flavor blends all of those previously mentioned aromas extremely sweet feeding a weird sort of artificial flavor. Wet super sweet candy-ish aftertaste and the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with an unspeakable sessionability that would make one think - where’s the beef on this body? Nope, not there. Low carbonation. ABV seems ok. Overall, a porter with no body and an overly sweetened aroma and flavor. Brewery tickin’, yeah, sure, but almost making me think what the rest of their beers are like.

16 oz. can. Brown (almost Amber) in color with weak tan head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, cocoa powder, dark fruit.

Flavor comes off almost artificial. Candy like. also shows a week metallic hint. Very light in body, (nearly watery). Not a very convincing performance on this beer. I will pass on this one.

16 oz. can from JStax - thanks, Jeremy. Pours a dark coffee brown with a small fizzy tan head that settles into a ring. Notes of old coffee, rusted metal, dirt, leaves, stale brownies, faint cinnamon spice, and spoiled bananas. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth,

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown, frothy 2" beige head, lace that settles back in. Taste is brown sugar malt that becomes syrupy sweet in the palate, barely showing hops at the end, certainly not enough to balance this overly sweet concoction. Lays heavy in the stomach with tons of sugar. Not a good one for me.

Can. Deep dark chocolate brown. Small head. Aroma was roasted grains with just a hint of chocolate. Taste was much more chocolate, roasted grains, and vanilla.

Pint can into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with a one finger light tan head. Leaves a bit of lacing that tends to slide back into the beer pretty quickly. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, toasted malts, and brown sugar. Taste is slightly bitter chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, toasted malts, molasses, and a bit of coffee. Body is medium, but the texture is thin and watery coupled with a slightly high carbonation. Finish is a little dry, but fairly long with malty brown sugar, mollasses and chocolate. Doesn’t taste like a brownie so much, but it is really good and has been growing on me with each sip. Tastewise it is a standout among porters, as I can’t remember a porter with quite this much taste. The only real downfall is the thin texture. Otherwise, great beer.

Dark brown pour with a small, tan head. It has an aroma of chocolate cake mix. The medium body has a creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet all throughout.
