3.65/5 rDev +2.2%
Caramel red-brown color with a decent amount of light passing through. Head didn't have much room to form.
Dry toffee, English brown ale malts, red grape skin, and kilned grains. Hints of brown sugar and cheap brandy. Not bad.
Toffee, kilned malt, turbinado, brandy, and tangy dark bitter fruits in the finish. Kind of simple, but good. Dextrinous feel. Could be a tad fuller, but on par for most brown ales. Carbonation is appreciatively mellow.

3.45/5 rDev -3.4%
On draft at DuClaw in Bowie, MD.
The beer is chestnut brown and hazy with a wisp of tan head. The aroma offers toffee, malt, bread, brown sugar. A touch of sweet toffee among brown bread and caramel malt notes. Moderately low carbonation with a touch of bitterness in the back. A decent brew, but not something I feel compelled to have again.

A: Clear, deep-copper colored, with only a half-finger of head (despite a semi-aggressive pour); lacing was minimal.
S: Toasted grain, fresh-cut grass, and a hint of vanilla (surprising for a brown ale); I also detect some caramel notes.
T: Malt is a perfect mix of toasted grain and sweetness. There are some mild, fruit flavors in the middle (Granny-Smith apple comes to mind, but it's fleeting). Nutty flavor and toffee come through next, tempering things a bit. There's mild bitterness in the finish, perhaps weak for a brown ale, but enough for balance.
M: Moist, with good carbonation (I've had better); the middle was smooth and creamy, while the finish had a hint of dryness.
O: Very easy to drink, and very tasty -- sessionable by any standard. This one can hold its own with any brown ale I've had. It may not be the pinnacle of the style, but it's very good, and I'll certainly be buying more for future consumption.
