Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A - Beer appears a deep, opaque brown, but shows as a slightly hazy mahogany when held up to light. Head is off-white and low, but stays as a thin sheet.

S - Aroma is very malty--bread, brown sugar and lightly nutty. No hops or alcohol on the nose. Aroma is not overly complex, but is very clean.

T - Clean, bready malt dominates. Some brown sugar and perhaps a touch of raisins. No roasted note. Hops are earthy and only appear very faintly in the background. Slight sweetness in the finish, but over all very clean, crisp flavors.

M - Medium body. Light hops bitterness. Low carbonation. No alcohol burn. All appropriate for style.

O - This is a substantial, thick and malty brown ale in the English style. It is very close to a porter in many ways, which is just fine by me. Extremely clean and well-made. I highly recommend it.

Medium sized light tan head sits above a clear dark brown colored ale.

A faint sweet lightly roasted nut aroma coming off this beer.

Light chocolate malts with a creamy smooth taste.

A very light dryish aftertaste without much tastes lingering behind with this medium bodied brown.

This beer seems like the halfway point between Bud and Guinness, not sure if that's a compliment or not.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(best by 9/11/13; drank on 8/4/13)

L: clear dark brown with amber highlights; cool dark brown base; 1/4-inch tan head, not huge, little bit of lacing; not much lacing

S: malty; old-ale liqour note; warms up to chocolate

T: chunky American hoppy brown ale taste; chocolate with bitter hop presence, burnt-hop finish; really tastes like a black IPA; stout-like dryness; not boozy but you can taste a bit of vodka/liqour in there; smoky wood notes, burnt oak

F: soft

O: very black IPA-like; not an English brown ale ... too many hops. it's not bad, just mislabelled stylewise. a brew definitely worth investigating, and for the price not bad at all, especially if you're looking for a more American-style brown ale
