I have to admit that brown ale is among my favorite beer varieties, and I am therefor biased. However, even among a genre of which I am inclined, this beer sticks out. Its flavor is not only rich, but it is distinct among brown ales. It is not too harsh , and is remarkably smooth for such a strong flavor. I usually like to explore new beers and breweries, and don't often buy the same thing twice, however, this will certainly be an exception.

A: Pours a deep amber/lt brown with a beige head that goes away quickly
S:Malt, roast malt, dark fruits and slightly sweet. Not much hops aroma
T: The taste follows the smell. You do get a bit of an alcohol aftertaste.
M: Light to medium bodied with a warming sensation
O: A good strong/old ale. Nice and warming. I will buy this one again next time I am in New England
