Captain Lawrence Brown Ale

Another growler that my buddy Tim bought for me at the Captain Lawrence brewery was the Brown Ale. The beer pours a brown color with a frothy off-white colored head with some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate, toasted malts, vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar. The taste is smooth and lightly dry with brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate malt flavors. It finishes with a toast flavor and light grassy hops. The aftertaste leaves behind vanilla, yet is pretty dry. The alcohol content is 4.8% ABV. This is a solid performer in the brown ale category and has a nice roasty flavor with great chocolate accents.
