- Style: (flavoured – salted caramel brownie) Brown Ale
- Taste: Artificial sweet nutmeg toffee barley malt
- Where I got it: Bottle Jockey / N. Burnaby
- How much: $3.50 (after 10% off) – 12 fl.oz., February 2016
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no way
Visual: Pours dark brown without much of a head, ringed retention with an island, a few slow singular streams.
Nose: sweet caramel barley malt (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: crisp, tingly, overly sweet malt impression
Mid-palate: artificial biscuity, plain barley malt, cloying (lvl-9-sweetness),
Finish: nutmeg, residual excess sweetness
Summary: Way too cloying sweet with a non-appealing artificial brownie flavour that ruins the overall experience. Not in the least like salted caramel and certainly nothing like a brownie. Not recommended. The worst I’ve had from New Belgium to date.
