look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I worked hard to pour a decent on this beer but it didn't do much good. There are a few wisps and a ring of foam. It's a very dark brown but fairly clear when I hold it to the light.

Pleasant malty sweet aroma.

Sweet caramel with a well rounded roasted malt finish.

light to moderately carbonated with a medium body.

This is an easy drinking pleasant tasting brown.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and decent retention. Smells of strong sweet malt, slight hops, slight roasted malt, hint of oatmeal, hint of chocolate, hint of alcohol, and slight yeast. Fits the style of an English Brown Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, roasted malt, slight hops, hint of chocolate, hint of oatmeal, and a hint of yeast. Overall, almost too sweet, but otherwise a decent blend, body, and aroma.
