Kottbusser Brown Ale

<p>Twin Sails hails from Port Moody BC and their bottled lineup includes the Kottbusser. A Kottbusser is an old-world Brown Ale that uses molasses and honey in the brew. From a bomber bottle this beer pours a colour of dark brown and is topped with one finger of head that leaves a very slight amount of lacing behind on the glass. In the aroma of this beer comes a smooth malt character and a nice blend of coffee and chocolate tones. There is a slight sweetness in the aroma but it isn&rsquo;t honey-forward, rather a nice addition to the chocolate tones. Tasting the beer it has a nice body to it and mild carbonation. The chocolate tones are quite big with a smooth sweetness to it. The coffee notes give a slight toasted bitterness to the flavour that is also quite smooth. The honey content seems to add to the body slightly and smooths out the whole experience. Molasses doesn&rsquo;t really make itself known in a traditional way but adds to the richness of the coffee and chocolate sweetness.</p>
