Served in a pint glass at the brewery in Bellaire. A very good beer. Deep in its appearance and flavor profile. This is billed as a London style ale. (Not to be picky, but I drank this with a Brit who said that it was a little malty.)

Dark brown body, semi-opaque, thin head but lots of tan lacing. Nose is heavy with the booze, flavor has caramel and a dry close. Decent malt oriented beer, with an easy feel that makes it quite drinkable.
