3.29/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: a dark brown/black beer. Mild head on the pour, it sticks around for a little while. This meets the description of the beer style. There is no description on the bottle!
Smell: Very nutty, and malty. I don't smell much in the notion of fruit, but this is definitely dry.
Taste: malty taste, then it goes to alcohol. Very dry. Not very hoppy, and its just a plain taste. You can taste the hints of alcohol in the beer itself. I am not a fan of this, but i guess it is accomplishing its taste via its style.
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, but its more thick than normal. This beer is harder to drink in quantities regardless of its attributes.
Overall: This accomplishes what it set out to accomplish, but this is nothing to brag about.

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.
