look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

33 cl bottle (bb 9 2015) into a tulip glass.
Look - clear amber brown with a tiny tan head and little lacing.
Smell - roasted malts, dried prunes and raisins.
Taste - begins with roasted malts, brown sugar and notes of nuts, chocolate and coffee in the middle, ending dry with a slight hop bitterness. Flavorful but not heavy. Good balanced taste. Pleasant long lasting smooth roasted malts in the dry aftertaste Was a bit too cold at first coming out of the fridge, became a lot more flavorful after warming up in the glass.
Mouthfeel - Soft, a bit creamy mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation.
Overall a pleasant sipping beer for an autumn evening. Soft and flavorful. Nothing surprising, just a clean pleasant taste.

Nose caramel, brown malts, malt spice, hop spice, cola, hints of anise.
Brilliant chestnut brown, 2” persistent tan head, excellent lace.
Palate: strong cola taste, chocolate, malty flavors are slight toast with medium dry finish accented with spicy hops, low fruit.
Above average creamy soft carbonation, medium body, very drinkable.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, deep, dark, mahogany color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with lots of bready, roasted malt aromas, imparting notes of freshly toasted pumpernickel bread, brown sugar, a touch of black pepper and a touch of hops.

Taste: Very good flavors of the aforementioned roasted malt and brown sugar-like sweetness. There’s quite a bit of slightly bitter hops at the finish, which is surprising, considering how little hops there is in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy and extremely smooth as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This a good, very good brown ale. Nice flavors of roasted malt and brown sugar, nicely blended with some pronounced, slightly bitter, but not out-of-balance, hoppy bitterness. I like it!
