An English-style strong ale. This brown ale has great malt depth and drinks like a session beer.

Nice maltiness. Not quite enough hop presence. Lacks complexity, but still, a good tasting, exceptionally smooth drinking beer at 7.4% abv. A great companion on a cold winter night.

Appearance: Dark, lustrous, earthy brown. Journey to the center of the Earth. A small but lingering tan head with good lacing along the sides of the glass.

Aroma: A bit weak, actually, but I can detect some soft hints of caramel. Not much else.

Taste: Earthy with a bit of toasty maltiness. It's not overpowering. It has a kind of natural passivity about it, like the Dao. And like Dao, there is a strength to that passivity. Okay, all silly philosophical banter aside, it tastes good.

Mouthfeel: Decent, medium body, with good aftertaste.

Overall: I found myself liking this beer and craving more almost right away. It's unassuming, and gently flavorful.

I thoroughly enjoy this beer. Nice earthy taste. Lightly sweety and caramel under tones.
