One of my favorites, period. Definitely one of the better of its style. Had this one over in England on tap and loved it. The bottle version is no let-down!

Has a nice reddish brown look with a particularly thick head that sticks around for a bit.

Subtle toasty smell.

Tastes the same as it smells, smooth and slightly toasty. A bit sweet as well.

Fairly smooth in the mouth, if perhaps a tad more bubbly than I really prefer.

Solid drinkability. I could down one after another.

4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a deep, ruddy brown with a nice creamy off-white head. The head has great retention and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is deep and rich malt, with hints of dark fruit and a faint earthy whiff. The taste follows in line, with a delicious malt forward flavor and a subtle hint of hops to round it out. The beer's body weight is perfect, not too heavy or thin and it has a smooth finish. A great pint of bitter. If you're in England, always good on cask.
