Barley John's Wild Brunette

This 7.2% ABV brown ale is made using wild rice, and is from Barley John's Brewing. Their brewpub is in New Brighton, Minnesota, but their cans come from their facility in New Richmond, Wisconsin (which due to Byzantine various state alcohol laws, allows them to sell their cans in Minnesota, which they could not do from their own brewpub).

The beer pours a dark brown with dark ruby tints. There is a half-inch of light tan, creamy head. The aroma is sweet and nutty, caramel, dark fruits, hazel nut and toasted wild rice. The taste follows the aromas, sweet, fruity and nutty. The finish is dry, clean, and moderately bitter. The beer drinks very easy with light carbonation. This is a pleasant beer.
