750 mL bottle poured into a mini pint glass.

Appearance - A terrible pour yields a huge cream head. Lots of lacing and great retention. Reddish brown body.

Smell - Aggressively hopped. Smells like a red ale. Pine hop and caramel malt.

Taste - Really hoppy again. Still tastes like a red ale. Caramel malts, grapefruit and pine hop. A little nutty, just barely reminds you of a brown ale. A little bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Intensely hoppy is distracting. Bitter. Slightly harsh.

Overall - Barely a brown ale. Just a nutty red ale.

Served in room temperature. My bottle says 6.0% ABV, not 5.90%.

Appearance: Dark brown. Pours a massive, thick and creamy head that lasts.

Aroma: Malty, with hints of burnt caramel and coffee.

Taste: Very soft and smooth on the tongue, with a creamy toffee flavour, vanilla, and a malty aftertaste mixed with milky coffee. Tasty!

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied.

Overall: An interesting variation on the brown ale. Very pleasant and tasty, although it could be a bit more robust. Feels almost like a morning beer.

A - Dark brown with a hint of ruby and a finger of frothy tan-khaki head. Fades normal.

S - Sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, nuttiness, English yeast, some dark fruits, touch of chocolate, some earthy hops.

T - Sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, nuttiness, English yeast and a touch of dark fruits, chocolate, oats, earthy and light citrus hops, some smooth bitterness.

M - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Super smooth with a sweet, dry, fruity finish.

D - Fantastic brown ale. Great balance of flavors.
