2.78/5  rDev -25.1%
look: 5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Served from bottle at ~45F

Appearance- murky, translucent brown with a thin beige head

Aroma- all malt. Dark chocolate and caramel

Flavor- the dominating flavor is the sweetness. To me it overrides all other flavors that are trying to come out. Some chocolate roastiness comes out towards the end, but the overall cloyingness makes it almost unpalatable.

Mouthfeel- medium to medium-heavy. The overall sweetness led me to the heavy. Carbonation seems appropriate

Overall- Although brown ales should be malty, this one misses the mark entirely. To me, it is too sweet and because of it, I missed the subtle malty nuances that a traditional English brown has.

Serving type: bottle
