Against The Grain x Montseny Jorge Castaña

Brewery: Against The Grain Brewery x Cervesa del Montseny Artesana
Country: USA
ABV: 8%
Style: American Brown Ale
Other Notes: Imperial Brown Ale with roasted chestnuts. A beer about nothing. It’s not a lie, if you believe it

Brewer Description: (from bottle) The world’s are colliding. We did this for no reason. So under no circumstance are you to expect anything. Except, a rich chocolaty and nutty, barrel aged brown ale. Jorge pours dark and roasty, so don’t be alarmed when you ask for another. Its not you, its Jorge.

My rating: 3

Intro: A 750ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A dark brown colour with a one finger beige head that dissipated fairly quickly and left sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, raisin, caramel, vanilla and oak with a light nut roastiness.
Taste: Quite similar to the aroma as its sweet with raisin, caramel, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, nuts, whiskey and oak with some booze and alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice aroma and flavours but perhaps a bit too sweet. This sweetness and the booziness make it a sipper for me, even though it is only 8% ABV.
