3.78/5 rDev +5%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a cola color (brown/ruby pretty translucent around the edges) with a half finger head, minimal retention and no lacing.
Smell is not very strong- mostly dark malt and a little bittersweet chocolate and a little nutty.
Taste is consistent with smell- not too intense dark malt with a little bittersweet chocolate.
Mouthfeel is like a dry stout- medium bodied, a little watery, and nope actually no carbonation. I got a single bottle of this and I won't likely get it again.

Poured into imperial pint.
A - Dark brown. Garnet hues shining through when held to light. No head worth talking about, lacing on top of beer though.
S - Coffee, roasted malts, vanilla.
T - Coffee, toffee, roasted malts, hazlenut?, vanilla.
M - Full bodied, nothing special here.
O - One of the first craft beers I ever loved, so I'll always have a soft spot for this one, no matter how many better beers I try. All biases aside, this is still awesome.

This is overall a very nice English brown ale! I got this bottle a few weeks ago in a trade.
Poured in my Struise glass this beer looks good, nice darkbrown fluid with a decent head. Nice carbonation and hardly no lacing.
Smell of coffee and dito coffee taste. I also thought that there were some hazelnuts in this beer. Soft sweet.

Poured into a Tulip from Bottle
Purchased From Brewery 01.16.12
A: pours a coffee colored body, appears darker, closer to black in glass, head quickly recedes, not much lacing
S: roasty, maybe hints of coffee, nothing earth shattering, but pleasant
T: follows the nose, some roast and a touch of malt sweetness, not getting much nutty out of it, doesn't quite nail the style (seems more portery rather than a true nut brown), but I am enjoying it.
M: nice, smooth, plenty of carbonation, which is needed for this sort of light bodied beer
O: pretty good, would purchase again. nothing earth shattering here, but solid beer from a solid brewery

A: Looks sort of thin, head disspiates quickly. The color is a very deep brown.
S: I really like this aroma. Chocolate, cocoa, coffee, hazelnut. It's like a chocolate coffee.
T: Same in the flavor, with some bready sweetness to round it out. The sweetness is mild and balances the other flavors well.
M: This beer falls down a bit when it comes to mouthfeel. It should be quite a bit fuller I feel. The light body makes the finish very short. I'd like the taste to hang around my tongue a bit longer. The carbonation is appropriate.
O: I do like this beer quite a bit from a taste perspective. It's also very drinkable, half the beer is gone in a flash. But, while it is very good... it could have been great.
