Served in a willibecher at Firkin.
Here's a tip: don't use all three in conjunction... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear midnight garnet topped by a finger of cream-khaki foam. The nose comprises dark barley, light greens, very light walnut, very light oak, and light grass. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a hint of light, slightly watered-down coffee. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice sessionable little brew, one that seems to demand to be cask-conditioned.

Had on tap at the tap room. Pours a really nice nut brown color with a good head.
Very nice roasty malt based nose with tones of brown sugar, malts, espresso beans, and nutty tones.
Medium bodied with a very smooth feel. There is some good style to the flavors of espresso beans, malts and brown sugar notes.
A delicious brown ale. Very attractive with really good balance.

Poured from a 64oz growler into pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!
A: Pours a deep brown that shows some reddening when held to the light. A creamy, dark khaki colored head reaches about 3 pillowy fingers thick before settling down into a thin collar and whispy skim. Lots of lace left behind.
S: Nose full of toasted nuts, caramel, toffee, chocolate milk, nougat, and sligtly burnt grain. Wonderful.
T: Just as above with perhaps a bit more emphasis on the toasted nuts and chocolate flavors.
M: Full, rich, and creamy. Just a hint of prickliness on the tongue. Exactly what I was hoping for, and they delivered.
O: Spectacular take on a classic British style. This one knocks it out of the park.

Good murky brown, Amber Carmel body. Misses some lacing. Carbonated really well.
Toffee, Carmel, classic English style aroma. Papery malt bill. Simple, hopless over ale.
Flavors match it perfectly. Sweet, nutty, earthen Brown sugar. Delightful paper and cardboard dry grains.
Too crisp and bright. Bit overcarbonated feeling.
