Oitava Colina's Agasalho is a Brown Ale with cocoa beans. Aroma has notes of chocolate and walnut, while in the mouth the walnut takes centre stage, with some notes of spices and herbs, with a very balanced bittersweet finish for a great Brown Ale.
English Brown Ales are itself a very varied category, ranging from lighter and hoppy to darker and more caramel and roasted beers. Their American counterparts tend to be more hoppy. Malts used are caramel and chocolate, and hops varieties are mostly English. It is a more malty style than British Bitters, and less roast than English Porters, and with less sweetness than London Brown Ales.
