Simply an oustanding brown ale. Completely sessionable, and pairs well with food that has a lot of character where it can help reset your palate between each bite.
Slight bitter hp bite and brown bread flavor, not sweet, not sour, well balanced. This is a beer you could drink by the half gallon.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a pint glass.
A- Pours a dark reddish brown. Lots of bubbles rising to the surface. About a half finger of head. Head dissipates relatively quickly. Looks nice.
S- Big caramel and toffee, with just a slight nuttiness. No roasted malt that I can detect. It has a wonderful caramel sweetness in the smell, and virtually no hop presence. Really nice.
T- Caramel and toffee gets you almost immediately. Caramel sweetness gives way to nutty character in the aftertaste, but it is still present. Just a bit of hop bitterness. Satisfyingly malty delicious.
M- Pretty medium-bodied. Not chewy but not watery. Pleasant amount of carbonation. Very smooth and easy-drinking.
O- A really impressive brown ale. Just a great beer and one that I will definitely buy with regularity.

Great tasting beer. Caramel taste - very hoppy. If you like heavy american, this is great stuff.
The pour itself was a reddish brown - very deep. The taste was bready with hints of fruit and whisky - very pleasant and smooth. I highly recommend this beer.
