A - A dark but clear brown with an auburn tint. A small lining of head tops the brew and quickly vanishes.
S - This smells more like an old ale or a stout than any brown that I have ever had. The smell is strong of raisins, currants and dates with some lighter choclate malt backing. The smell is pronounced and pleasant.
T - Flavor has a chocolate and burnt malt profile that is fairly mild, but nice. The aftertaste has only a bit of a latent burnt toast flavor to it. It is a very, very mild aftertaste.
M - Smooth, medium viscosity and fairly refreshing. It does gum in my thoat a bit, but not terribly so.
D - This is by far the least English Brown-like English Brown I have had to date. Granted, that isn't an awful thing in this case. This beer has a lot more flavor than most brown ales while still remaining a delightfully quaffable brew. Brown ales should never be screaming, but this one could actually be heard.

The body appears tobacco juice brown and features a thin yet sticky light tan head. Nuts and roasted malt grain aroma. The taste sports a malty sweetness offset with a somewhat bitter and slightly acrid flavor at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and semi-dry finish.
This brown ale appears to have roots in within a traditional, malt-forward type of ale. The malt sugars are the key: rich, slightly charred in flavor and aftertaste, and with the hops providing a low-key bitterness to nicely complement the sugary sweetness. Robust and delicious.
