Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a rich, dark brown with ruby highlights. The head is thin and disappears into some whisps and a ring of foam around the glass which lingers indefinitely

S: Caramel, toffee, rich malty goodness. No discernible hop aroma

T: Similar to the smell - delicious malt, caramel and toffee. Here, the malt is nicely balanced
by a finishing hop freshness. Delicious

M: Medium bodied, highly drinkable. Despite the lack of head retention, nicely carbonated

O: Overall a delicious and thoroughly enjoyable brew. If there were a bit better head retention, it would have scored even higher. Nevertheless, Ellie would be proud, indeed.

Very good balanced beer, one downside is the head retention, the tan head disappears quickly. The ale makes up for it with a taste that lingers long after the mouth feel disappears, bringing once forward nut flavors to the back of the tongue. Semi spicy hops with nice dark floral tones that really compliment the medium malt tastes. Could have a fuller body for a brown ale, but seems like the mouth feel of many american brown ales. Traditional english browns are deeper on the malt but this one still carries through a lot of the flavors you come to expect from an old school brown but with stronger emphasis on the raisen tones throughout, both in the aroma and taste.
