A: Very tasty black/brown with a great cap of tan which just hugs the sides of glass all the way down.
S: Cherries super ripened ,cinnamon ,apples, coffee, chocolates.
T: Tastes of fresh baked apple pie with a chocolate drizzle on top and good coffee. All flavors are subtle and yet powerfully balanced. I tastes like the holidays for sure around my house.
M: Full/Medium slightly chewy but thinner in other areas.I do miss the slightly warming of this style will hope it comes thru as it warms to room temp. Sadley no chage at end or middle of glass.
D: Very drinkable and smooth creamy with a nice lower alchohol so you can enjoy more.

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.
