Stone / Bear Republic / Fat Head’s TBA
Stone / Bear Republic / Fat Head’s TBA is an American Brown Ale. An extra hoppy Brown Ale brewed with molasses and brown sugar. I noticed the hops at first, big pine with a little citrus. Then the malts, brown sugar & molasses balance things out. The sweetness reminds me of a good bbq glaze, sweet and smoky with a hint of coffee. The hops take over the finish with an IPA like bitterness. If you are looking for a traditional Brown Ale I would just skip this one, but I liked this collaboration beer a lot.
