Really nice brown ale. Beautiful dark brown hue. Smells a little yeasty. Well balanced to my palate with neither the malt not the hops overwhelming the flavor. Again a little bit of the yeasty flavor coming through.

Refrigerated 12 oz bottle dated notched with a BB date of Nov. 2015.

Clear medium brown body; some sediment from the bottom of the bottle added mid-tasting.

Mild but pleasant aroma with borwn bread and toffee dominating. The flavor is even milder, with a near equal bitter/sweet balance.

Near medium body with low carbonation.

A - Nice light, clear brown.
S - Just like any other brown ale.
T - This is where the beer shines. Excellent taste. Nutty, not too sweet, and very drinkable. I have had this beer several times now, it is best on draft. Goes well many things but especially red meats and pasta.
F - Very light and drinkable.
O - Probably the best nut brown I have had. Blackstone has some great beers and I think this one is the best. Much better than Newcastle, which I suppose is the one everyone has had.

Pretty decent brown ale over all. Didn't know what to expect from this brewery because I had never seen or heard of the. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

Overall, this was disappointing. Not a ton of depth and what was there tasted similar to river water. Some non-river water earthiness but nothing beyond that. Just not a good thing here.
