Wow. Just, wow. I only review beers I like, so, for my first review, I figured I'd review my all-time favorite. My favorite style is the English brown, and this is the king of them all. The best browns are British, and this is Britain's best. If you like browns, you have to try this. It's a requirement to get into heaven.
A - A deep reddish brown, the color of autumn leaves. Beautiful, simply beautiful.
S - A toasty toffee smell, hazelnuts, absolutely no alcohol.
T - Toasty, overflowing with nuts. But the aftertaste is the best part: hazelnuts for a few minutes. Slightly sweet, but not too sweet. It goes equally well with a perfectly marbled steak or a slice of pecan pie. The perfect accompaniment to a delicious meal. The definition of delicious beer.
M - Creamy and smooth, with just a little bit of carbonation, but it isn't flat. Just silky, smooth and soft.
O - Sell your soul for just a taste of this beer. If I had to drink one beverage for the rest of my life, other than water, this would be it. A meal in itself, but a perfect partner with nearly anything.You'd be hard-pressed to find a meal with which this doesn't go perfectly. The best beer on the planet.

A 12 oz. brown bottle with gold foil. No freshness date on the bottle. Poured on a pint glass.
A: Nice deep brown, copper and red. Creammy head with nice retention
S: Fruit and something that feels like a fresh sugar cane finish (anybody agree?).
T: I think that this is an amazing balance beteen sweet and bitter, but bitterness claims it's place on the beer. Nuts.
M: Very smooth, medium bodied. Light carbonation and alcohol hides itself in the complexity of the flavors.
D: This is a very a very drinkable beer, the bitterness might not be for everybody.
