I have, once again made an Earl Gray Brown. The results are rather tasty. The nose has a chocolate and nut aroma, like a not quite as sweet version of Nutella. Having moment like that is always promising.
The beer itself tastes like a sweeter version of a brown ale. I’m just not familiar enough with Earl Gray tea to accurately say where it kicks in and I’m pretty certain I could’ve amped the tea mixture up even further. There is an orange flavor though, almost like what you’d get from one of those chocolate oranges. Good stuff.
Next time I’m just using the whole damn box of tea though. Overall, this is a pretty drinkable beer and at 5.2% it falls comfortably in the brown ale style pretty well. Good stuff.

Sounds delicious. Great idea!
I remember the last batch of that being quite yummy.
Oy. You can tell from the use of the phrase ‘Good stuff’ that I am not a professional.
And I liked this batch as well. I think there could have been a slightly stronger bergamont/tea presence, but you’ve had a good idea on how to pump those flavors up.
We’ll see if it pans out.
