This beer sounds like an interesting take on a brown ale. This beer is from Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. in Charleston, South Carolina. This ale is Chocolate Caramels Brown Ale, 5.8% ABV. This ale has chocolate, vanilla, and lactose. This ale pours an amber light brown color with a two-finger light beige head that sticks around for a while. The aroma is sweet, and there is a roast aroma with chocolate and caramel. The taste is smooth, roasted, sweet with light vanilla and chocolate. I think the chocolate, vanilla, and lactose give a caramel flavor. The mouthfeel is medium. This brown ale then finishes smooth with a caramel chocolate flavor. The aftertaste is sweet but not as sweet as your first sip. It has a Rolo candy-like aftertaste. Edmund’s Oast Chocolate Caramel Brown Ale is a B+. This ale is starting to slip away from a brown ale-style beer and onto another style. It’s not a terrible beer, and it has some brown ale qualities. I would go back for another. I don’t think it’s quite a brown ale. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
