Pours a clear,very dark amber colour. Smells like sweet malts, caramel, sticky tree fruit, and dates. Tastes medium-light bodied, mild bitter hop throughout, nuttiness, cereal malt, a hint of dates, and dry overall.

Undated 12 oz bottled poured around 50 degrees. Nice malty nose. Hazelnut shines. Despite big malt nose, not overly sweet. Fairly thin, but nice flavors.

Pours a light ruddy brown color. Appears mostly clear with lots of small bubbles coursing upwards. Smallish tan head initially dissipates quickly. No residual head is left, no lacing.

Smell has notes of roasted malts, caramel, nuts, hops, and a touch of rubbing alcohol. The rubbing alcohol lingers on the nose with a bit of burn.

Taste has notes of roasted malts, roasted nuts, a hint of vanilla, caramel and toffee, with some bittering hops on the finish. Really smooth flavors with none of that burning alcohol from the nose. Touch of oak and a tad sweet, but not overly so. Really nice flavor profile and spot on for the style.

Feel is light and drinkable yet incredibly smooth and full bodied.Even though the beer looks like it should be thin it isn't. Medium carbonation.

Overall a really nice English brown ale - if it wasn't for that rubbing alcohol aroma, this would be an outstanding beer.
