16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, toast, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, brown bread, slight pine, and floral hops. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, toast, nuttiness, brown sugar, brown bread, light roast, light pine, and earthy floral hops. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, light roast, brown bread, brown sugar, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance, robustness, and complexity; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale! Very nice balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a haze red/brown into an imperial pint glass with a huge, frothy head that very quickly dissipates into a thin film. Smells of predominantly lemon instantly hit me; upon closer inspection there's some biscuity malt character as well.
The bready malts are up front in the taste, along with flowery and lemon bitterness, a light british yeast flavor, with a crisp (almost coppery) finish. It's lightly carbonated and very smooth but quite thick.
If I were to sum this beer up, I would probably call it an imperial ESB. It's extremely well balanced and just overall very enjoyable, without being overly complex.
