This is probably my all time favorite English Brown Ale. This brewery does it right and this is why.
I've had it in mugs and pints and it always looks the same.
Today, its in a mug.
The appearance is a thick dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing clings and then slides nicely.
The smell has a thick rich nutty, toffee, light caramel and a bit of chocolate in it all combining wonderfully.
The taste was sweet and nutty allowing all of the previous ingredients to combine nicely. It has a nice rich nutty aftertaste that flows into a smooth wet finish.
The mouthfeel was thick and rich rolling chocolate nuttiness over my tongue with about a medium body on it. Subtleties of toffee lay in and around my tongue as well. Its fairly sessionable.
Overall, I love to have this beer in Winter and watching the end of this Winter Classic hockey game makes it perfect. Booyah!
