Wow...the girls have done it again! I've now learned to trust that if it's a Lost Coast beer, then it's a good beer. Have I not tasted an English Brown Ale before this?

The beer poured a standard pour, with a cloudy brown body and slight head.

The smell was like tea and malt with flittering hoppiness. It smelled like a malty belgian! The smell was a perfect blend with the taste that was outstanding malt and what must be dark hops? Perfect.

Does this come in kegs? I hope so.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark reddish amber brown in color with minimal amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some ruby red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted and roasted malts with some lighter aromas of chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted and toasted malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are moderate flavors of cocoa and chocolate with just a hint of vanilla. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness are present but do not linger for too long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with a touch of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: A nice example of a brown ale with some really nice winter flavors. I enjoyed this one and would definitely consider grabbing it again. Overall the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is relatively easy to drink.

A: Ruby red tinted brown with a mocha head.

S: Citrus hops and a touch of nutty malt in a faint nose.

T: Cinnamon, cardamom, nutty malt, nutmeg, blended really well together. A touch of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied and a little alcohol astringency. Moderate levels of carbonation.

O: Definitely one of the better brown ales I've had, which is saying absolutely nothing, so I'll put it this way: It's a great beer, nice and wintery, and the nutty malt serves as a nice backbone for the wintery style. Recommended.
