Dark copper color with lots of sticky bubbles. The head is a static formation of tight carbonation that looks nitrogenated. Slowly decompressing head.
Smells like toasted grains with a hint of brown sugar. That is all, folks.
Rigid flavors that are pretty simple and pretty straightforward. Lightly roasted grain, raisin, earthy hops, and some dry caramelly malt. A little mealy. A little spicy, especially in the finish. Some metallic notes. Quite dumbed-down.
Drinks easy except for a carbonation level that is a little choking. No impediments in the body, but then again, nothing to write home about.
Very average, which is not characteristic of this brewery. Avoidable.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
