22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of coconut, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, light cocoa, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, coconut/almond spice, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of coconut, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, light cocoa, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coconut, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, light cocoa, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, coconut/almond spice, and light fruity yeast notes; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a good English brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt, coconut/almond spice, and light fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Draft at Beer Exchange.

Pours dark amber with minimal head. Aroma hits the nutty almond and coconut notes. Taste is strong with toasty coconut, earthy almond tones. Some mocha flavor here. Interesting change of pace beer. I'm not sure about a 6-pack but I'd drink a bottle once in a while.
