Served in a 12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Poured a dark brown color, mild amount of head, average retention and a small amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet toffee, toasted malt. The taste is medium body, sweet toffee and some chocolate. There is a bitter hop finish. Overall this is an excellent English Brown from a very good craft brewery. Great session beer- One of the classic Micro-Brews.

Grabbed this while on vacation in Puerto Rico. No freshness date notched on the bottle.

Nice smell of molasses and roasty malts to greet you up front. Taste is a decent mixture of these flavors with some hops at the end for good measure. Mild sweetness midway through; finishes mildly dry with some pleasant lingering bitterness and a touch of warmth. Rich, full body sells the experience nicely.

A solid brew overall.

Pours caramel-brown not even a finger of lacing that dissapates in seconds. Right away, nut brown and rich.

A-Dark-brown in color(reminds me of rootbeer).

S-Picking up a good mix of the caramel/nut mixture. Predominantly nut, but toffee/caramel is in there.

T-Mostly roasted nuts, but there are undertones of the toffee-like sweetness.

M-Lacks carbonation from the start, but the nuttiness comes to its rescue quickly with a resounding roast finish.

O-I am a stout fan, but this gives me the curiosity to stray more often!
