Dark Corner

Dark Corner
Corner Brewery (ABC)/Dark Horse
“Imperial American Brown”
~7.5 ABV
pint
 

This fantastic limited edition release is a collaborative effort between Corner Brewery (ABC) and Dark Horse. It pours a murky, dark brown. At first sip, I thought this was a milk stout, such was the smoothness and gentle sweetness of what I took to be chocolate malt (but in retrospect may simply have been judiciously added brown sugar). Unlike some brown ales that rely on oversweetness and  flashy carbonation to mask their lack of structure, Dark Corner instead has a robust, well-balanced profile with low levels of carbonation.  Strongly recommended.
