The beer pours a murky brown color with a wispy head. A dark malty aroma with some dark sweet fruit. Fairly full bodied brew, but very smooth and creamy. Caramel toasted malt leads to a bittersweet finish. There is a nuttiness to the beer from start to finish.

This is a decent English ale.

Pours a dark ruby brown.
The odor is faintly sweet malt
Taste is a slightly sweet caramel. Earthy with a bit of nut.
Not much of an ESB profile really.
