The best part about this beer was the look. Super smooth creamy off-white colored heading which can only be produced by nitro. Left a little bit of lacing throughout the tasting.

Smell was of roasted malt,as well some chocolate. An earthy aroma almost nutty was apparent as well. Did have a slight bitter hop aroma.

Taste was a simply as stated. Heavy roasted English malts with a great twang of American bitter hops.

Mouth was very smooth and slick. Slight diacytl taste is left in the mouth.

A good ESB better than most I've had of this style and an unforgetting hoppy taste.
