"One of my personal favorites, Indian Brown Ale is an anomaly, in that it's complex - but doesn't seem like it. It's extremely versatile and does well in a variety of pairings, like with the Melanio. The caramel notes are the key enhancer of the earthy-sweet element of the Maduro wrapper, and the overall complexity of the Oliva. " — Jorge Vazquez / Beer Product Manager
