not a brown ale fan, but felt that this beer held up its part in being allowed in the brown ale category. The beer has a nice flavor, not too bitter, and holds well as it is drank. Kudos to Alewerks for producing an ale from an ancient recipe that is very enjoyable today

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.

On-tap at Chownings Tavern Williamsburg, VA. 18th century recipe. Pours no head, no lace. Deep brown color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Light malty chocolate nose and flavor is roasted chocolate with a burnt chocolate finish. $5.50 for a pint mug.

Enjoyed this growler from Williamsburg Alewerks.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with a two-finger tan head that slowly dissipates down the side of the glass and leaves a nice lacing.

S: Malty coffee aroma with a toasted malt background.

T: Similar to the smell a great coffee malt flavor with a good mix of toasted-toffee.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Really good brown ale – very smooth and went down easy.
