look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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!

Malty and bready, with just a bit of hops. Thick consistency, with an impressive amount of head. Brown sugar flavor. Dark and translucent pour.

Nose: biscuit, fruity esters, nuts, rich dark malts.
Brilliant chestnut with a 1" tan tinted off-white head. Lacy.
Palate: Rich malt and grain spice, chocolate, and some mild roast, drying on the finish.
Medium body, medium carbonation, a smidgen too sweet up front, a little more roast than necessary.
