4.16/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
