Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: cjgator3 on 12-05-2008

Pours dark brown in color with a tan head with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toasted bread. Flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate notes open with interjecting notes of wood and herbal bitterness from English hop varietals then moving back into semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee and is dried out in the finish with toasted malt notes that resemble roast peanuts.

Poured into a glass from a bomber. This beer was extremely dark for a brown ale and very heavy. Nutty and malty with hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. Also a tad woody and finishes clean with a dash of bitterness. Had this beer awhile ago and hope to see it on the shelves again.
