Good sized foamy tan head that rises right to the rim of the glass. Head reduces moderately fast to a good foamy lace. The color is a very deep reddish brown with some garnet highlights. Some carbonation can barely be leen rising up from the bottom. The aroma is earthy with some roasted and chocolate notes. Some about the aroma I cant quite place. Mouth feel is a bit thin to medium. The flavors seem a bit watered down, but are similar to the aroma. Note much sweetness to this brew. Theres a slight malt noticeable, but a tartness picks up and lasts until the end. The finish is quite dry and hoppy with some light roasted notes. There also seem to be a slight cola flavor to this brew at times. The carbonation is light. Not a brew that Ill be putting on my must have list. I can finish this one, but dont really want another.

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.
