Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Translucent dark brown. Sediment visible when viewed against light. Nice head lace.
Smell: Some dried strawberry (I think that is the tart I'm getting), light chocolate, and nut.
Taste: Some dried strawberry (I think that is the tart I'm getting), light chocolate, and nut..
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation. Slightly watery.

I'm not sure what to think of this brew. It has an interesting smell and taste. However, it's quite light in both regards, and perhaps too blandly balanced. There is a slight hollowness or watery taste that makes this appear rather weak. It's a decent drink, however, I wouldn't get it again.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy murky brown with an off-white head which fades and doesn't lave too much lacing and there's decent retention. There's alot of sediment/floaties. The aromas are very faint. Lots of caramel and chocolate malts. There's some raisins in the mix as well. The flavors are very grainy and has mineral like characteristics. There's a touch of maple and vanilla. There's a very subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel is on the heavier side of light-bodied. There's a high amount of carbonation, fizzy, but smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

As a big brown ale fan, I can't say this one really grabbed my attention.
