Chilled bottle poured into a pint glass. A thickish looking deep dark brown body with only mild translucent coloring around the edges. Generated a chunky three finger head that holds strong density in the centre and holds fast at half-a-finger across the surface and sticky lace patching around the glass.
Aroma is well defined and dominant with slight sweetness on the nose from chocolate and toffee malt like characteristics. Some sticky floral notes blend with dry smokey hops and sugars.
Taste is not as forward as the aromatic features of this beer. Once again roasted malts and grains feature strongly and provide a smokey type texture to the taste. Sweet chocolate and toffee is present but a lot more thrown back in the mix when compared to the presence of those notes across the beers aroma.
Whilst this Brown Ale is not even close to being light bodied it does come across that way when the body is considered in the context of the way this one looks as one could easily suspect a heavy bodied brew before tasting. Moderately carbonated, well balanced with a dominant bitterness and a dry finish.

Pours brown with a large, fading head.
Nose shows nutty, toasty and light roasty notes. Faint cocoa too, along with soft spicy hops. Somewhat restrained.
Similar nutty and toasty malt as flavours. The spicy hops follow through too. Very easy to drink.
Carbonation seems just a little full on.
Serving type: on-tap
