4.06/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into pint glass in June 2017. Drank it about 2 weeks after purchase. Bottled on date was Apr 2015.

Appearance: Dark brown with a tan/brown head. Body is very opaque and can barely see any light thru it. Head is initially thick, and leaves a very thin lacing on the glass. Head looks creamy and does not stick to glass.

Smell: Sweet aromas like caramel, vanilla, and honey, with a hint of hops edge. Overall it is a sweet aroma, more sweet than I would prefer.

Taste: A nice combination of flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. There is a nice bitterness from the hops that adds to the complexity. Strong alcohol flavor, similar to a whiskey, which is expected with 9% alcohol.

Mouth-feel: Strong, and with a smooth creamy body. Matches the 9% alcohol on the label. Not as creamy asother brown ales, which is a pleasant surprise.

This is an easy drinking ale. It has nice combination of flavors, with a touch of bitterness from the hops. I like this better than most other brown ales which are too sweet and lack any bite from the hops. I would buy this again.
