A very dark beer for a brown ale, almost opaque in appearance, but very appealing to the sense of sight. Inviting and intriguing from an optical standpoint, the rest of the journey through this beer adventure doesn't exaclty measure up to the auspicious start, though it doesn't fail to satisfy completely. The smell was good but there was a certain lack of strength in the olfactory area, though perhaps my sense of smell was adveresly affected by the cigarette smoke from the person next to me (yuck!). Anyway, it was fair, what little smell I was actually able to injest. The taste was very above average yet not even near exceptional. The dark malts predominate and there is little hop flavor, yet it is still not a typical brown ale. A pretty good mouthfeel and a good drinkability, I recommend this beer.

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.

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.
