look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A- pours a cloudy brown-black into a plastic picnic cup. Not much head-retention. But the deep chestnut color is very inviting.

A- Full disclosure : I have a fairly insensitive sense of smell. Ipicked up whiffs of cocoa and some sweet malt. Nothing stellar.

T- The temperature was spot-on for how I like my cask beers; though that's likely too cool for the purists. Plenty of chewy malts source most of the sweetness followed by a portion of more intense caramel malts. There's a very gentle roast that improves the flavour profile, w/o ever becoming a challenge to the drinker. Eventually the beer develops a complexity of flavor s from dark fruit and smokey chocolate motes. But none of this is sharp or so intense as to be overwhelming. Most folks might even miss it.

M- Along with being served at the absolute ideal temperature,
the mouthfeel contributes to the high drinkability. Creamy, but not sticky or heavy. This beer gives you something to chew on while.

Pours deep brown with hints of red. 1/2 inch head, mild lace.

Chocolate, slight caramel and a bit of floral hops I
In the nose.

Smooth chocolate, malted barley, grass and floral hops combine for a smooth, rich taste. Very nice, moderate body.

Very very nice brown ale. If you find it on tap, give it a go!
