Dark ruby pour with foamy tan head. Dark malt aroma. Sweet with gentle bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. This is okay.

Deep dark black with a little bit of head. Sweeter than I expected with a nice malt backbone and just bitter enough hop profile.

Neighbor brought this over. Not a bad brown ale. Nutty, caramel, the touch of earthy hops makes it interesting enough.

Middle of the road brown ale with some chocolate, toffee and roasted flavors. A little too light on the body and rather watery on the disappointingly short finish.

This is a decent representation of the style. Nearly black in color with thin head, but some lacing. Caramel, toffee, and sweet malt in the flavor. Enough of a hop presence to somewhat balance.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- this has a strong malt aroma
Appearance- A dark brown color with a large head. .
Taste- A malt overload, this has a strong flavor
Palate- this is a medium bodied beer with a creamy texture
Overall- not a horrible example of an English Brown Ale but it was just okay in my book
Comments Thanks to BigLove for sending this one cross-country. This is the sleeper of the Abita line.

This beer really surprised me. When I first tasted it I thought, whoa I made a mistake. But after the first few sips it seemed to do the opposite of what most beers do. It got better, not worse. It is an interesting unique beer with a distinct almost toffee or bubble gum lollipop flavor, which does not sound appealing for a beer. But in its own way it is really good. Head minimal mouthfeel meh, but taste a pleasant surprise. To top it off it is almost as smooth and easy to drink as a big box american lager beer (water).

Nice deep copper brown color, head quickly dissipated. Kind of bland flavor but still not a bad brown ale.

Very mild and enjoyable. Balanced with tastes that are all good and not overpowering. Notes include chocolate toffee. Ok not great.
