Give me liberty, or give me death! Our tribute to Patrick Henry, who not only left his mark on Virginia history, but was also one of our most beloved Founding Fathers. Henry led the opposition to the Stamp Act, but he was also central to arguing in a Virginia court against the King’s right to veto colonial laws. The Crown’s veto was nullified in his efforts and his argument was the first notch in a young Patrick Henry’s career. Cheers to the break from the Crown, Patty! Hope you enjoy our English Brown Ale as a tribute!

This Northern English Brown Ale is filled with a variety of English malts giving it great caramel, nutty, toffee flavors with a touch of chocolate and even espresso. The English Hops offer the perfect balance to the complex malt sweetness, providing a earthy/grassy hop finish.

Deep clear brown with a light tan head. Barely hangs on and clings to the sides. Rich and malty and nutty aroma and taste. A little caramel sweetness on the taste. Smooth finish light body.

Served on-tap in a branded TN imperial nonic pint at Three Notch'd Brewing Company (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Very dark brown with 1/2-inch beige head with good retention and a multiple bands of lacing float down the glass.

S: Delicious milk chocolate aromas mix with lighter coffee and dark fruit aromas. There is some darker caramel character in there as well. Hopping is not detectable, maybe a touch of herbal earthiness but it is mainly staying out of the way of the sweet chocolatey qualities. There are a few earthy, fruity yeast ester aromas, but they are minor in the overall scheme of things.

T: No Veto's flavor follows closely from the aroma with sweet overtones of milk chocolate, raisin, fig, and toffee from dark and crystal malts, and light coffee most noticeable with warming. The hop notes are more background but are mainly earthy and herbal. Yeast character is less pronounced than in the aroma.

M: Very drinkable with light-medium body and low carbonation overall.

O: A really drinkable English brown ale with a sweet overall quality, dominated by chocolate and dark fruit flavors. So good I took a growler home. I am glad this is a year-round beer -- a treat for dark beer lovers.
