Randomly grabbed so wasn't prepared to do a full review but it was so good I had to put something down.

Great Brown Ale; Smooth, sweet at times, hoppy, balanced. Looks dark and seems like it should be heavier but it is very easy to drink. Up there with DFH Brown and Smuttynose for me. I'll be grabbing this again soon.

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.
