Served from a 12 oz brown bottle.

Appearance: Translucent coppery brown with a nice tan head that sticks well.

Smell: Aromatic and freakin' delicious smelling. Caramel, dark bread and raisins all come to mind.

Taste: Nice and malty. Some caramel and nut flavors upfront with a toasty bread taste in the middle. A little bit of roasted bitterness combined with faint hops to balance the malty sweetness. Some dried fruit and grainy notes are there too, but you really have to search for it.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium bodied.

Impressions: Man, this was delicious. I'm surprised this isn't more popular, not that I'm complaining. This one will please any brown ale fan, but do note that this is not a very hoppy (Indian style) brown ale like the kind that have become so popular now. Malt profile is definitely at the forefront.
