look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle. bottled on 9/20/11
A: a very hazy, deep mahogany hued brew. off white head dies down to rim. however very pretty lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: similar to an english bitter, lots of nutty aromas. however, more roasted and definitely more chocolate smells in there too.
T: a little bit of roast, a lotta bit of chocolate on the first sip. a slightly bitter chocolate, but not a full on dark chocolate variety. sweet malts mix with a sort of oaky woodyness.
M: a low carbonation on this medium bodied brew. wouldnt hate a touch more carbonation here.
D: great flavor on this rich brown ale. this is one that i have not had until this past fall season and i will be looking for it each season that comes.

Bottled on date of 09/03/13
Appearance - Pours a hazy, rusty auburn with a khaki finger width head. Fair retention, leading to a broken layer of suds across the surface and a thick ring around the edge of the glass.small, spotty lacing with fair stick.
Smell - Prominent malty notes in the form of chocolate, brown sugar and toasted biscuit. Light notes of caramel and a hint of earthiness.
Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolate and caramel hit upfront, quickly followed by a toasted bready quality. A light leafy and earthy undertone, which strengthens in the aftertaste and joins in the caramel finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fairly lively carbonation. Goes down with nice smoothness and is nigh chuggable.
Overall - A solid, straight forward brown from Bell's. Nothing fancy, just a great example of the style.
