Ontap in a shaker, the beer is a dark, vibrant brown coloring with no head. Aromas of roasted hazelnut and rich chocolate, with cream highlights. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, with a mocha blend and a solid bitter coffee backbone. Smooth and midbodied, with a roasted and slightly bitter nutty coffee aftertaste. The finish is smooth, with a dry edge and a coffee linger. Solid beer.

tap at the brewery

Pours a clear brown with white lacing for a head.

Smells of buttered toast and caramel malts.

Tastes of buttered toast, walnut, and a woody hop finish.

Medium carbonation with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Really good brown ale, lots of great flavor and aroma. Really worth stopping in and trying if you are in the area.

As the menu states..." northern English style of ale." Light brown color. The beer had a sweet malty taste, with some hints of hops, more of the fruity type of hops. There slight hoppy aroma, with a hint of fruit. Good all around beer, a session beer.
