Nuts in aroma and some sweetness, taste also has them nuts. Palate could be softer, a bit fizzy feel from the hops bitterness/ carbonation. Nice beer.

"Yet another style that Alesmith is at or near the top for. Nice roasted malt, cocoa nutty caramel aroma. Light, smooth body. Flavor much the same. Semi-sweet with restrained hops. Great beer for a brown ale."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried from the bottle. Deep ruby/ brown body, nice light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, toast, cocoa and some dark fruits. Taste of caramel, biscuit, cocoa, dark fruits with a hint of roast and just a touch of floral hops. Sweet beer with medium body and silky texture. Easy to drink. Very nice.
