3.78/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - dark brown with reddish edges; a quarter of an inch of soft, dense, brown head that has decent retention

S - grainy and sweet at first, but then nutty, roasty, and big caramel aromas

T - big caramel maltiness, big nutty character, some stickiness, very faint graininess, a mildly bitter finish

M - medium bodied, a bit crisp, a tad light at times

This is a decent brown ale. It doesn't have anything that separates it from the crowd, but it is brewed to style and is easily drinkable. If you're looking for an unoffensive, solid brown ale, then this is it. If you're looking for something more, you should look elsewhere. I'm glad I tried it once, but I won't be seeking it out again.

Yeah, yeah, I know, Cabin Fever on the fourth day of Summer?!? Well, I am trying to winnow my way through a massive backlog of beer and the older ones are on the verge of becoming V.O.S., so they get priority.

From the bottle: "Hints of rye, roast and raisin join a subtle caramel sweetness before a clean finish. Parirings: roasted meats, dried fruits, gruyere & smoked cheeses."

The drill is becoming a familiar one by now - pop the cap, heavy pour, sit back as the pseudo-cascade takes place, record results thereof. This time, the two-plus fingers of head were a dense, light-brown with good retention. I was reminded of the top of a coffee or mocha ice cream cone. Nose definitely gave off raisin and a smoky roastiness, hence their suggestion for smoked cheeses. Color was mahogany (SRM = > 22, < 27) with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was creamy and the taste was chocolaty with raisins and smoke. It was like a Cadbury Fruit and Nut chocolate bar. Finish was semi-sweet, with the roasted malt offsetting the chocolatiness and the fruitiness. This was one that need not be thought of a a seasonal, but it would have been nice to have paired it with some of their suggestions. Maybe next time ...
