Poured from the brown bottle into a nonic. Light brown with a crimson tinge and about 2 fingers of tan head. Smell is nutty with a decent amount of raisin coming through as well. Taste is similar. Plenty of maltiness on the palate. Not overly complex just a nice solid brown ale. Nutty, malty, tasty. No hop flavor at all. Just enough bitterness to stand up to the malt. Finish is fairly dry with flavor lingering for a short time after each sip. Carbonation is on the low side but doesn't bring the beer down at all. Glad to finally taste this, the benchmark of the style.
