1 PT. 6 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial nonic pint glass

A - This beer pours dark brown with ruby highlights when held to the light. A semi aggressive pours yields about three inches of tan head.

S - I smell some cocoa, along with earthy, nutty aromas.

T - The taste has those earthy, nutty flavors that make English browns great. With hints of cocoa it is a nice representation of the flavors of this style.

M - Medium towards full.

O - I like the comforting earthy qualities of this beer. While I find it a good example of the style, I still think I would pick a Sam Smith's Nut Brown over this. But, this will definitely slake my thirst of the style.
