330ml bottle, part of the current Tree mixed pack.
This beer pours a clear, dark bronzed amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and quite bubbly beige head, which leaves some nice broken cloud lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly abates.
It smells of biscuity caramel malt, saltine crackers, wet ash, a touch of bitter coffee, and very light citrusy, herbal, and leafy hops. The taste is more gritty, dry bready caramel malt, burnt coffee grounds, a hint of bittersweet chocolate, and peppy leafy, herbal, and grassy hops.
The carbonation is active, but agreeably restrained, the body an adequate medium weight, and smooth enough amongst a growing flintiness. It finishes fairly dry, the biscuity, grainy malt, char, coffee, and hops all campaigning forcefully for the cause.
A rather enjoyable brown ale, with enough multi-varied bitterness, and hop presence to make me stand up and take notice. Not a big hoppy version of the style though, but more subtle and drying, which emboldens this with a fair bit of staying power. Give 'er a try, if you can.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 27/12/13
A dark amber with enough clarity to see the other side of the glass and bubbles throughout, two fingers of light brown foam leaves a thick collar followed by some random patches
S coco, some herbal and citric hops, faint burnt coffee and some dark nutty toffee
T slightly more hops then the nose, and slightly burnt malt balances things out nicely, mimics the nose well but the intensities pumped up, tastes solid
M medium bodied and stops just short of foamy, a little slick after the fact with some chocolate, coffee, and faint fruit linger for a while
O this one tastes a little darker then it looks, well rounded and drinkable, pretty solid effort from Tree
a few tweaks and this one would be something special, worth a try for sure and a welcome addition to Tree's lineup
