Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Another British style that has a roasted nut-like aroma. Brewed with a number of dark malts, which lend a complex malt character. This beer does not have a lot of hop bitterness, only enough for balance.

Tap

Pours a deep cloudy brown, caramel translucent around the edges. Rim of off-white head.

Smells of oak, oatmeal, hazelnut, and roasted coffee.

Tastes of cocoa, caramel, coffee, and nutty malts. Bit of walnut.

Medium body with stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Very nice stout, great flavor and aroma. Definitely worth trying.

Had on tap in downtown Frederick. When this beer is poured, it's a wonderful deep brown color with resilient foam on top. Looks great, but everything about it is a bit average. I couldn't pinpoint any specific flavors, nor did anything really stand out about the beer. Maybe even an okay session beer -- I could see myself putting down several of these in a night at Brewer's -- but nothing spectacular.
