3.35/5  rDev -9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Served in a pint glass, poured a dark crimson with a frothy head and nice lacing.
The only smell that surfaced was a metallic odor.
Tasted kind of boring with subtle cocoa notes and malt.
The mouthfeel was smooth medium bodied with minor carbonation.
Overall, there wasn’t much offered here for a brown ale, I think I’d pass it up.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Lovely to look at, with beige-tinged head on the dark brown ale, served in a standard US pint glass.

Odd aroma is the first sign of trouble. Smells like the smoldering remains of a burned house. Then one sip and the flavor hits me-- burnt newspaper. Surprisingly malty, but the taste is deeply disturbing. It reminds me of the charred blood sausage I spit out at the Argentine restaurant at lunch. Or the smell of nearby burning garbage in a damp country.

On tap at the brewpub in Philadelphia. From notes on June 2, 2012 visit.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On cask at fergies, nice pour, a little colder than expected; color is dense brown, light thin head.

Smell is nice and malty, solid sweetness, notes of toffee.

Taste is malty dense sweetness, hint of bitterness , bready and toffee flavors.

Mouthfeel is just right, lingering sweetness is just enough.

Overall, great beer on cask, good flavors, good presentation.

Serving type: cask
