Had it poured with nitro at bent paddle, real solid brew. Smooth creamy head. Very sessionable.

From a can into an imperial pint glass

A: rich burnished copper, 3 finger puffy head, terrific lacing.
S: Faint earthy herbal hops, some caramel, some biscuit.
T: Very nice. Nutty, a little cherry, biscuity backbone, and then some earthy hops that prickle on the tongue towards the end, and it finishes with more nuttiness. Fairly hoppy at the end for the style, but it works.
M: a great thing about this beer -- creamy, full body (given the low abv), medium to low carbonation.

Overall: one of my favorite styles, and so hard to find done well on this side of the Atlantic. This is the best one available around these parts (though I like Town Hall's Broken Paddle a lot too). I'd love to try this on cask.

Not a big nose, some biscuit, earthy hop and a touch of nut.
Pours brilliant chestnut with a 1" snow white foam cap. Lacy.
The palate starts with a hint of fruit, biscuit, nuts, slight treacle, a suspicion of chocolate with a light hop accent on the finish. Finishes semi-dry with lingering biscuit, hop and treacle.
Medium body and carbonation.
