A: Brown pour with hints of red. The compact beige head is medium tall. Slow dissipation leaves quite nice lacings.

S: Dark roasted semi-sweet malts. Hay. Some faint vanilla.

T: Sweet dark roasted malts with quite a lot of vanilla. Some dark dried fruits and even some bitter hops. Chocolate and strong black coffee. Oranges sezt.

M: Aftertaste lingers with dark sweetness. Body is on the fuller side, smooth! Carbonation is very low. Quite a lot of alcohol and warmth from it.

O: Smooth, sweet and quite balanced in vanilla. The alcohol is a bit too obvious though.

A clear chestnut colored beer. A high tan head with some lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of grain, bitter orange, honey and hay.

Tasting sweet brown bread, bitter orange marmalade and hay.

Medium low carbonation, a soft and sticky texture. A big body with a slight dry finish.

Well balanced, a bit on the sweet side. But sippable.

The colour is brown-red, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and beige. No lacing occurs.

The smell is... brown and roasted. Some alcohol. Brown bread and hints of vanilla and coffee.

Lots of grand flavours, and they got a rather British profile. Dried fruits, some alcohol. Fruit toffee. A slowly growing bitterness. Toasted bread. Creamy smooth flavours. Medium body. Smooth aftertaste with notes of butterscotch and some vanilla.

The carbonation is strong, the few bubbles are almost sharp. The liquid is smooth and a bit thick.

A very balanced and smooth brown ale, thankfully without any artificial vanilla flavours.
