Picked up at Julio's on a whim. I've had the regular Holy Grail but had never seen this before.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a mahogany brown with a slight reddish hue. Atop, was a creamy two finger head that withdrew at a slow rate leaving nice sticky side lacing.

S - Rather average brown ale here. Roasty, sweet, nutty malts.

T - Really solid sweet, roasty malt flavours. Quite well balanced and smooth/milky tasting.

M - Lightly carbonated results in an almost silky smooth, medium bodied brown ale.

O - Surprisingly good. While its nothing jaw dropping, I was expecting something cookie-cutter from Black Sheep. While I'm not sure if this is a relabeling I am sure of one thing. This is a all around good english brown ale.
