3.73/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Very simple label with very nice graphics and a great color scheme that really catches the eye. Front label gives a bit of brewery info. Back label gives a nice back story and description of the beer.

Appearance: I poured this from its 12oz bottle into a 16oz English Pint. An aggressive pour led to a 3 finger airy but tightly packed light tan foam head resting atop a deep reddish mahogany brown beer. Head retention and lacing were both excellent with retention lasting 6min before fading to a thick foam coating and ring.

Smell/Aroma: This has a slightly musty smell followed by a bit of sweet fruitiness that gives way to even more must. Slight hints of brown sugar can also be detected.

Flavor/Taste: Tastes starts out buttery with a bit of toasty maltiness that gives way to a nice hop bitterness. A toasted nuttiness comes through on the back end and sticks around to from a toasty aftertaste. Not bad at all.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and smooth with a velvety mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Overall/Comments: Not a bad beer overall although I was a bit thrown by the musty aroma. The flavor contained non of that must and proved to be very appealing. Classified as an English Strong Ale @ 7% ABV. Consumed 6/4/2013.
