BREWMASTERS SERIES: CHOCOLATE MINT BROWN ALE

Dead Frog Brewery, Aldergrove, British Columbia 

  • 5%ABV
  • Deep black-brown coloured beer with a very substantial head.
  • Notes of roasted barley and oats comes through right off the pour, with only hints of chocolate.  As this beer is allowed to settle and temper the aromas really begin to develop and the chocolate and the mint become more pronounced.
  • This beer is surprisingly light, but the flavours are very rich and developed, roasted oats comes through immediately followed by the chocolate and finally a wonderful mint aftertaste.  Coffee richness is also likening the beer to a candy cane mocha.
  • We were very surprised how wonderful this beer turned out, not at all synthetic tasting, just a well crafted flavoured beer.
  • I’ve seen this beer sold at Willow Park Wine and Spirits, Zyn, and Co-Op Liquor stores.
