3.8/5 rDev +5.8%
Starts with a large head but settles to a narrow layer of light tan bubbles. Good set of streaky spots and webs of lace. Brown color where light shines through easily. Appears to be clear.
Dark caramel aroma--sweet with a bit of toast (with cinnamon sugar). A bit cloy.
The flavor is an improvement because the flavor is dryer than the smell indicates. Strong crystal and caramel malts. The swallow features a very good hop presence, more than most brown ales. The body is also above average.

Rustic red-brown color with a coarse head. Looks like a winter warmer.
Nutty nose with English toffee and tempered malts. Light kiln bitterness, mostly Maillard Effect in full swing. Earthy hops, herbal notes, and combustible sugars.
Very tasty nut brown. Rugged malt toast, dry toffee, barley, breakfast coffee, and finishing alkali-pressed cocoa. Herbal and caramelized. Absolutely awesome.
Slick body with medium viscosity. Carbonation is mild. Nice prickle. Very good.
Kickass nut brown. Among my favorites.
