A: crystal clear; deep reddish amber in color; 1 finger khaki head that receded to a wispy cap; IK lacing;

S: toffee, nut, chocolate;

T: a little mocha up front, then toffee, nut and chocolate in the middle; finish is back to mocha; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: for me, this would be a great dessert beer; a little too sweet for normal consumption;

My 1st Brown Ale. Boldly smells like toffee/coffee upon opening bottle. Taste sweet up front with strong coffee aftertaste and slightly dry finish.

F: A little thin for my liking but consistent with most other English brown ales I've had
O: English brown ales aren't my favorite, but this one is really nice

Aroma is very nutty and toasted malt dominant, grainy, with a hint of buttery toffee and some very subtle specialty malt fruitiness.

Flavor reveals a rich of buttery sweetness initially, fading quickly to a dry, toasted malt backbone and a cereally, earthy bitter finish. It's a tad hollow in malt character, and the bitterness is somewhat harsh and astringent. That finish kills it for me.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a hazy but clear brown color with a ruby hue, small foamy off-white head reduces quickly to just a film on tup, a bit of lacing left behind

S- very nutty up front with a caramel malt sweetness, earthy & musty, butter, fruity esters

T- sweet and malty with flavors of toffee/caramel, roasted walnut, vanilla, a hint of coffee & earthy hop, dry yeasty finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a dry finish

O- easy drinking, straight forward brown
