Notes: There are sins that cannot wash from our backs. But in the realm of contrition, that is exactly what we will continue to try and do. Our plea for forgiveness lays within this accommodating beverage. We mashed this more roast-driven traditional ale with a rich English malt base, complete with doses of caramel, brown and chocolate malts and a helping of English oats. The result is quite quaffable, and dangerously repeatable, with a nose lending of baked crusty breads, coffee bean, roasted nori and grilling spice.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear extremely dark chestnut brown approaching jet black in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and faint dark garnet red + dark cola brown colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy tan head that reduces to a handful of small patches of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of roasted + chocolate + brown + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. Hints of earthy hops and roasted coffee.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of roasted + chocolate + brown + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of roasted coffee. Finally there are very light flavors of earthy hops. Light to moderate amounts of lingering roasty bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a smooth light mouthfeel. Enjoyable with lots of malt complexity and I could easily drink this one all night long.
