Although I haven't tried as many brews as the majority of people on here, I must say that of all that I have tried, this is by far my favorite beer. I have nothing but good things to say about this brew. I only wish that the other products from the same brewery were up to par with this one.

i dont know why but this brew i can always count on, probably the most smoothest brown ales you can ever consume, the caramel and coffee like flavors bring out the best out of this fine ale, this is the perfect beer to let someone try thats never had an ale or dark beer, because its damn good!

Good ale. Tastes best out of a pint glass excellent laceing. Not overly carbonated makes for easy drinkability. You can govern how much head by how fast you pour it. The head stays around for a good long time. This ale would be good with a meal or just to get drunk on either way I recomend it.

P - 18.6 oz clear bottle, code date on back label. nice cap =)

A - Bright translucent reddish amber orange with nice thick foamy whitish tan head, frothy lacing.

S- very sweet carmel maltyness.

T - sweet taste of caramel, slightly bitter at first, with very sweet sugary aftertaste. sweetness overpowers any hop bitterness, alcohol completely hidden.

M - smooth, slightly watery, just the right amount of carbonation.

D - one of my favorite brown ales could sip all night, reasonably priced for an English Brown Ale. very good at warmer temperatures aswell.
