3.6/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-Deep amber brown can see a little light through the beer if you hold it up to the light.
It is not the least bit cloudy.
Head was about 1/2" and lacing is quite good.
Taste - Has a bit of of a smoky roasted malt flavor. Hops and alcohol are there but not in your face.
Mouthfeel- Good mouthfeel, smooth easy on the carbonation.
Not my favorite English Brown, I prefer the Oak Pond or Samuel Smiths Nut Brown.

Serving type: bottle

3.45/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter 1 month before BB date.

Pours clear dark reddish-brown with a weak head that leaves minimal lacing.

Aroma: Caramel and medium roasted malts; faint hint of English hops.

Flavor: moderately strong; limited complexity; slightly sweet balance. A touch of spicy hops in the finish and hints of smoke and coffee in the lingering aftertaste.

Feel: smooth, medium-full body with medium-light carbonation.

O: near average for style.

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - dark mahogany brown with a one finger caramel colored head, no real retention and minimal lacing.

S - grass, dark fruit, figs, raisins

T - molasses, toffee, lemon tartness, raisins, and a very fizzy cola taste

M - lots of carbonation, fairly thick

O - not my favorite beer ever, but as brown ales go, this one is okay.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Dark brown with a finger of fizzy off white head, a few spots of lacing.
S - Roasted malts, dark fruit, toffee, toast, some earthy and herbal hops.
T - Sweet malt up front, not so roasty, some fig and pum, herbal hop bite, toffee creamy traits on the end.
M - Good feel, not heavy, but a little chewy, goes down easy.
O - This is a decent brown ale, enough complexity and character to be appreciated.
