Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale

New Belgium Brewing recently did a collaboration beer with Ben&Jerry's! The name... Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale! The label depicts a cow in full ski gear schussing down a slope. Ski cap, ear muffs, goggles, scarf... Check! A little intro on the label also sets your expectations. Proceeds of this beer benefit 6.25% alcohol. Enjoy by 20MAR16.

Sweet caramel, cocoa aroma, like a sweeter version of your typical brown ale. Definitely tastes like a brownie, though not in an over-the-top way. Nice pronounced caramel, cocoa plays background flavor. Light roast. Not too sweet with a noticeable hoppy balance. Basically, a really well-made brown ale base with some fun "brownie" additions to add a little interest. Check it out! I have another that will definitely be used w some vanilla ice cream!
