Pours a clear dark brown with slight reddish tint, cola like fizzy offwhite head. Smell: toasted brown bread, cola, cherry, brown sugar, peppers. Taste: cola, fruity: dried apricot, fig; brown sugar, brown bread, earthy and peppery in the finish. Easy drinker at 9% though the carb is a little aggressive.

One of the best brown ales out there. Smooth texture and great taste. With a abv @ 9.0 makes it perfect to enjoy a couple at a time. Highly recommend.

Excellent brown ale. Pours reddish-brown, with a thick head. Would get again, and wish it was available more often in my location.

Pours clear mahogany, with sparkling orange highlights, head builds high but loose with minimal retention and spotty lacing.
I get the fig, cherry, dark fruit aromas mingled with a malty biscuit sweetness.
The taste follows the nose for the fruit and malt, but then is followed by a boozy oak finish that leaves my palate dry.
The alcohol is nicely balanced by the fruits and leaves a pleasant warmth to remind me to sip again.
An easy drinking ale that is true to form.

This one really hit the spot. As soon as it was poured, a picturesque head of beige foam rose up above the muddy body, bringing with it aromas of estery dark fruits. Each sip was balanced and subtle in its complexity - sweet, slightly nutty malt, earthy mushroom, molasses, and rich fig and date flavors abound, a combination of tastes that left me chewing the palate slowly and deliberately. Truly a meal in a glass.
