A: Pours a dark garnet with a short lived tan head. clear.

S: Malty with some raisin, spicy hop filters in. some wheat like character or slightly fruity like a Belgian. The hop doesn't have a noble hop aroma, something domestic.

T: Bright, Malty caramel and toffee. A bit of dark bread crust moderate to low hop bitterness with low spicy hop flavor. A slightly sweet, creamy finish.

M: Medium body, a little slick and oily on the palate. low carbonation, not biting, low acidity.

O: This is a nice beer. It has a bit brighter malt flavor than the typical brown ale, the hops are not overpowering, more like an English brown. The hops seem to be of a domestic variety which adds to it's complexity and uniqueness. I'll have another!

Very tasty beer. Poured dark, dark brown with little head. Nice maltiness to it with a bit of hops. Would definitely enjoy another!
