A: This beer pours a clear, deep copper/ruby color with a dense light tan head. Excellent head retention and lacing.
S: There's a lot going on in this beer. There's a pronounced deep malty aroma with notes of chocolate, caramel, and a nutty bread crust. there's also a subtle hint of dark fruit coming through amidst a noble earthy hop. A tiny alcohol aroma tingles the nose in a most pleasant way.
T: Beautiful toffee and caramel sweetness explodes on the palate with a subtle cream flavor. A small raisiny flavor competes with the mild hop bitterness. There's also a nice tang that dances across the back of the tongue and finishes semi dry. Low to medium carbonation fits well.
M: A bit fuller body than a typical northern English brown that fit's this beers complexity.
O: This is one of my favorite English ales. It has everything an English brown ale should and then some. Do yourself a favor... Pour this brew and try it cold but let it warm and take another sip every few minutes to fully appreciate the complexity of this supreme being.
