2.73/5 rDev -27.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Pours a very dark brown color with a thin tan head that lingers for a minute. Leaves a nice, creamy lacing.
Smell - Chocolate and toffee are most dominant. Toasted malts proceed after, but very light.
Taste - Overly sweet (in my opinion). Has a strong bitterness that dulls all other flavors present. What I can pick out is some coffee and chocolate flavors, with caramel and hazelnut in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation.
Overall - It must be because it follows the style of an English brown ale that I don't like this. It is the worst brown ale I've ever tried, but I'm used to mostly drinking American browns.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/19/2013. Pours moderately cloudy deep ruby brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, molasses, brown bread, brown sugar, nuttiness, light chocolate, light raisin, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, light raisin, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, herbal, light chocolate, and light raisin on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark malt flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
