Dark Corner (Dark Horse Brewing, Marshall, MN)
Copper brown ale when back lit sun with an off white to brown, thin head. Big biscuit and caramel in the noise with a solid hop—floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is light, almost watery, instead of the chewy I was hoping for when the bartender said it was an Imperial Brown Ale. Tastes like a buffed out Newcastle. Strong caramel on top of biscuit in taste. Smell and taste identical—simple and clean. Good in the heat, but I would be disappointed drinking this at home.
