Flying Fish Exit 8- Chestnut Brown Ale
Flying Fish Exit 8- Chestnut Brown Ale in New Jersey. The beer pours a dark brown, almost black, color with a lofty and frothy tan colored head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass as it subsides. The aroma consists of toasted malts, coffee, honey, chestnuts, caramel, and hints of chocolate. The taste is smooth at first with a chestnut bite and plenty of toasted malts that make their way onto the tongue. A coffee dryness settles in with honey and caramel sweetness. The alcohol content is 8.3% ABV. This was a wonderful brown ale with great honey and caramel sweetness balanced with chestnuts, toasted malts, and even coffee hints.
