This beer must have been brought back from the dead, because it's here and better than ever. Pours a deep clear mahogany with a thin beige head. Aroma was slightly sweet.

A fine balance of English hops and toasted malt, this beer really packs in a nicely balanced flavor and shows almost none of its high ABV. I enjoy a good old ale every now and then, and this one is certainly quality.

Thanks to dickinsonbeer for this...
Appears a dark, transparent brown with a small off white head. Little lacing and a small collar is left behind.
Smell if of mild coffee, sweaty nut bag, mild molasses, and mild peat.
Taste is of the same aromas.
Mouthfeel is thin with a sugary, natural malt richness that swirls around in this watery brew.

A - Deeply brewed ice tea. Low head and low lace.

S - Great aroma. Sweet toasted almonds and breads.

T - Same delicious nuttiness from the nose. Loads of toasted hazelnut and almond. Touch of char. Bitter, 65% dark chocolate on the back end.

M - Medium body, refreshing carbonation. Semi-sweet chocolate finish.

D - Nice taste and body. I'd have a few of these.
