Poured this French Country Ale into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. This is the first time I have tried this style. The beer poured a clear, slightly amber straw color. It produced a nice white head and had average lacing. The aroma of the beer was sweet, smelled of fresh baked bread and had a hint of spice that I can't put my finger on. The aroma was wonderful. One of the best smelling beers that I have ever had. The taste was malty, a little bready, slightly dry and had notes of raisins and pear. There was some bitterness from hops that melded with the other flavors. Very complex beer. Awesome, I will be looking for this again. In fact a road trip might be in order.

Bought a single bottle on a whim, and I'm very impressed. This is a brown ale done right.
Serving type: Admittedly I drank this straight from the bottle, and this beer genuinely deserves to be poured and savored.
Appearance: Looks reddish through the bottle, somewhat opaque.
Smell: Enticing! The slightest hints of coffee and chocolate and a very drinkable hop aroma. Also something fruity, with a bit of the characteristic citrus of an American pale ale.
Taste: Extremely clean and rather refreshing for such a hearty breed of beer. Satisfying hop taste, might overpower certain delicate flavors in food. A touch of bitterness, though the aftertaste is quite sweet.
Mouth: Pleasant carbonation, just the right amount to pair with food and expect to clear the palette. Progresses into a nice foam finish.
Overall: This is truly a winning beer. I've been an IPA drinker for a while and I've recently discovered my passion for stouts and porters- I would recommend this to absolutely anyone remotely interested in beer.
