4.04/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased at Magpie Irish Pub in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark but clear brown, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like toasted bready malt, caramel, and nuts.

This is the classic nut brown, and tastes like one. Some cocoa powder, nutty flavor, toasted bread- pumperknickel, sorta, with caramel, and slight Englishy hop bitterness- leafy and tea-like. It's basic, but it's goddamn tasty.

Medium bodied, crisp, very clean mouthfeel, and insanely drinkable.

This is the blueprint for brown ales, and I can see why.

Serving type: bottle

4.23/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours a very light reddish brown color with a two finger white fully head which retains pretty well. Some lacing as it's drank.

Smell: Very nutty and roasty malts upfront with a hint of chocolate.

Taste: Almost a dead on math with the smell: Very nutty and roasty, with a hint of chocolate. A bit of a bitter, nutty malt up front, with chocolate in the middle, finished with a slight dry hoppy flavor

Feel: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation and smooth.

Overall: I expected it to be darker and sweeter, but still a great brown ale.
