Had this beauty on tap at the GRILL NEXT DOOR, Haverhill, Ma
and this is one brew I seem to want to go back to, especially
if you're drinking some seasonal, spicy beers. Its got a great
drinkability(in mine opinion) and tastes great. Had an awesome
BB burger at the grill and this beer just got better as it warms, but they drink so easy, they never really last. After taking a second look at this one, I'm hooked!

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.
