Decent brown ale. Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Clear dark brown color with thin head and fairly good lacing. Subdued toasted malt smell and taste. Hint of dark chocolate and coffee. Goes well with cheese and crackers.

Pours dark brown, little to no head, Smells a little licorice. Smooth texture with lighter carbonation. Caramel, licorice bittersweet. Flavour lasts a while.

Doesn't have much a smell but it looks great, the brown can implies the thick dark brown ale with a chalky head.
The taste for me is thick and sharp. The mixture of mildly sweet notes is distinct and tasty, strong but not overpowering. I enjoy it with a hot meal but it's great on its on.
It's kind of a classier version of Natty Bo.

Medium brown with a light tan head.

Smell is pretty subtle. Slightly nutty with mostly molasses coming through.

Sweet and malty flavor that has some of the molasses from the smell. Has a dry nutty finish. Mouth feel is a little thin.

This is an okay brown ale. Seems to be lacking something for my taste.

On nitro so feel is excellent. Ppurs deep brown with a thick tan head that lasts. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste is fruity almost grape and more malty then hoppy. Overall, a bit light on flavor but a good English Brown.

I’m a fan. I enjoy a good brown ale when the weather cools off. This one hit the spot and I will come back to it when the craving hits again.

Solid brown ale. Definitely get toffee, caramel and strong coffee flavors. Did not get much of an aroma but the carbonation and mouthfeel were great. I am not always the biggest fan of brown ales but will definitely drink this one again.

Really enjoyed this beer on my first taste. Hints of chocolate, coffee, and sweet caramel, but a tart opening on the palette. Very smooth and pleasant finish.
