At glass, it has a great look, with its dark color and good consistent beige head. Good carbonation.
Aroma has a perfect balance of malt with hints of caramel, toast, coffee and chocolate.
Taste is equally intense, dominated by malt and a long, with dry hop notes finish.

Basic goodness brown ale but cant find anything great in this. Decent brown ale. Some malty notes and the finish is a bit complex dry but hard to describe.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep amber, close to brown. Head looks creamy and is slightly tanned. Huge malty aroma with lightly toasted malts and caramel and hints of toffee.Taste is malty, caramel and toasted malts again, but it also has a quite refreshing bitterness to it that balances it out nicely and making it very drinkable. Body is close to medium with a medium amount of carbonation.
