Dark brown, tan head. Sweet fruity and smokey flavours mix here to make a decent brew, nothing to fancy though. Smooth and quite drinkable. Draught.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost opaque dark brown color, with a copper hue, and moderate activity. Slightly creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of chocolate, roasted dark grains, molasses, dark berries, nutmeg, coffee, herbal spices. Highly sugary, with low bitterness, but strong sharpness. Creamy medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish that lingers with a chocolate roasted earth feel. Overall an okay quality craft. The flavors are tasty, but a little unbalanced and faint, while the remaining finish is well intensified. Okay freshness being a little flat. Feels overly accessible.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear Mahogany brown pour, fair sized head and decent lacing. A bit of cocoa, nuts, roasted malt in the aroma - quite muted actually. Caramel, roasted malt in the taste, again a bit of nut, chocolate, nothing really stands out here but is a little more robust than the aroma suggested. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side. A pedestrian brown ale geared more towards those with an aversion to hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big tan head, nice stand. Very clear coppery brown. Chocolate, doughy, malty aroma. No hops. Chocolate and biscuity in the front fades into a nutty finish/aftertaste. Light caramel sweetness. Crisp, thin (not watery) body with a dry finish. Medium-high carbonation. A little more body would be nice in this beer and the carbonation is a little high for the style (especially for a "classic British-style brown ale").

Nice, easygoing brown. Pours dark mahogany with decent lacing and head. Some roast malt and nut in aroma. A little hops, though minimal. Finishes a touch bitter with some sense of musk.

Can. Clear brown pour with a reddish hue. Aroma is raisin, plum, dates, a little bready and slightly roasty. Taste is nicely balanced dark fruits with a light bitterness, dry finish. Not terribly rich, but good flavours and a great balance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.473 can. Clear, brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma of wood, dark malts, smoke, a touch of nuts, and a bit of milk with tea. Taste is malty - coffee, nuts, and dark chocolate work in good balance. Light body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish tastes of coffee candy, quite simple. Overall not a bad beer but by no standard is it particularly good.

Sampller after the marathon. Pours dark brown, reddish tint visible in the light. Decent head bubbles away for a while then descends into just a film. Rather dull aroma of caramel malts. Very lively taste though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown body with a lively tan head. The nose is relatively understated with touches of malt, nuts and a hint of milk chocolate. This is a nice fall beer. The body is a solid medium texture and the taste is subtle and well blended. Malt, slightly roasted nuts and a hint of cream and chocolate work well together. The continental hops are understated and hard to find and there is some spiciness in the finish.
