A: I'm really digging the look of this one. Awesome dark brown/deep ruby red color, good head and some lacing.
S: Sweet and malty nut brown aroma. Very similar to SS Nut Brown, which is one of my favorite beers, so I'm pretty excited.
T: Still has the nut brown thing going on but it's toned down here. Slightly tart, which might indicate that it's a little past its prime, but if you can't get a fresh winter ale in the middle of February then that is sad indeed. Buttery aftertaste.
I like this as a winter brew. More malt, less spice, it's a nice change from the usual. I only wish I bought more than one bottle. Next year a six pack at least.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, 2013 bottling. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, prune, fig, caramel, toast, molasses, biscuit, brown bread, herbal, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, prune, apple, caramel, toast, biscuit, brown bread, molasses, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, prune, apple, caramel, molasses, toast, biscuit, brown bread, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice english brown ale. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
