500 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light nuttiness, light coffee, herbal, light fruitiness, and roast/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, light fruitiness, and roast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, brown sugar, light coffee, light fruitiness, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice session Brown ale. Good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Brewed at Batemans for 'spoons latest real ale festival. Chestnut to mahogany colour with an offwhite head. It smells of toffee, but it certainly doesn't taste sweet, instead there's a wholemeal bread, almost marmitey flavour. There are certainly spicy hops here, but I prefer them in conjunction with something a little sweeter. There's also a hint of cocoa. It has a rather dry finish.
