A clear brown ale with ruby nuances, a warm tan head with good lacing and good curtains.

A smell of fresh brown bread, eggs, milk chocolate.

Starting sweet caramel and toffee, muffin batter, brown bread, chocolate, sherry and raisins.

Little carbonation, soft and sticky, a huge body with a smooth sessionable dry finish.

Nice, balanced, a great beer.

Pours copper brown with ruby red highlights. A big tan head leaves plenty of lace and retains well.

Smells of toasted malts and dark candy, rich, a hint of pine and booze round out the aroma.

Taste is similar to nose, but a bit more piney, toasted malts, and a nice tangy hops finish.

Texture is very smooth for this medium bodied brew. Not super drinkable however, as the happy warmth it gives means don't drink too many.

A nostalgic beer for me here, as when I read this label the first time almost 20 years ago, I knew this beer was for me, and the label was for the BMC crowd.

DOA
