Bottle (date unknown):
Pours a semi-clear brown with an off-white foamy head that lasts a bit, and collects with medium thickness at the edges - not much lacing. The nose is pretty full on toasted malts, toasted to lightly burnt bread, and a hint of nuttiness.

The taste is a bit more flavored coffee (maybe hazelnut), but with some other flavors that resemble the nose. The body is a bit light, with a minor bitter bite in the transition to the end flavors that I get: cigarettes and chocolate (a bit more of the first, and occasionally the latter).

I liked the beer more than I expected. It had a fair amount if complexity in the tastes, especially for the medium light body. Definitely will grab this agsin, if possible.

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

A: Pours a typical brown with a fair head.

S: Malty caramel and graham cracker with no hop aroma. Some raisin.

T: Caramel and a bit of toffee and graham cracker. Low bitterness. Sweeter finish but not too sweet.

M: Medium body, low carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel. no astringency.

O: WHat a pleasant surprise to find this in a cooler at Colonial WIlliamsburg. A beautifullly crafted brown ale with a malt forward balance. Alewerks has outdone themselves with this brew. My only criticism is that you can't get it anywhere else. Looks like I have to make more trips to Williamsburg, as this is now one of my favorite english brown ales.
