Had a bottle at a pub. Solid brown ale with perhaps a bit more pronounced hops than is typical for the style but it works. Aroma was brown caramel malt, some nuttiness, a bit of herbal hops. Taste was sweet malt, hazel and Brazil nuts, a bit of coffee, chocolate brownie, nice roasty flavors. Was a tad boozy perhaps but not a fatal flaw. Nice smooth creamy mouthful that would not be out of place in a cream ale but the flavors are more more assertive than that. Fizzier than I would like. Nice offering and worth at least one try.

Going through a dead frog sampler pack--

This is a decent beer. I think it succeeds by putting forwards some dark beer flavors (chocolate and crystal malts) while still remaining refreshing and quaffable to the general public.

Almost like a cream ale, it is very smooth with a strong malt body that resonates with strong converted malt flavors and a bit of coffee/dark chocolate flavor towards the end of the sip. It has a rich, true-ale finish and a low carbonation that works well with the medium mouthfeel. A sessionable entry to the brown/darker beer spectrum for anyone. Something to be satisfied with in a 'crafty' pack, but not anything to seek out.
