Poured from a can into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a rocky two-finger head of light tan foam. Great retention. Sticky rings of lacing coat the glass.
S - Moderate strength aroma; lots and lots of chocolate malt. Hint of earthy English style hops.
T - Taste matches the nose; big chocolate and bready malt notes forward; tastes a little like a tootsie pop. Slight bit of mild hop in the finish. Nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. Flavors are quite robust for a 5.5 ABV beer.
M - Big, chewy, and creamy. Drinkability high. Great feel for the style.
O - One of the best examples of the style I have had. Nothing revolutionary or mind blowing here (it's a brown ale after all), but a really well crafted beer all around and a great "everyday" kind of beer. Outstanding.
