As per the label: "blend of pale ale and stout".

Pour is thin with a moderate white head. Translucent chestnut brown.
Dominant smokiness and roasted aromas. Citrusy hop aromas take a back seat.
Taste reflects the aroma, mainly smoky, roasted malts with a mild bright hop finish.
Feels too thin for a stout or porter, not unexpected after the dilution with pale ale.
Overall not that bad. One could certainly do worse for the money. (438 characters)
