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.
