Four Saints Brewing Brown Habit
What the brewers say
Medium-bodied, nutty-malty, with a slight roast.
What our panel thought
The aroma is the best part: a rich blend of dark toast, caramel, chocolate, floral hops, and stone-fruit esters. In the flavor, assertive hop-bitterness detracts from malt complexity. Slight tartness from roasted malts in the finish.
What our editors thought
Spicy cinnamon and chai with pointed hazelnut on the nose. The sip is less exotic, with small tannic touches of those spicy notes in a broad, slightly thin, lightly roasted body. A lilting bitterness appears at the end.
