UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Warm and smooth goes well with food, not overpowering but also very flavorful. Has become my everyday beer b/c the porters has caused, DDD.

Bottle: Rich chocolate malt with a smooth light body makes it very sessional. A true solid brown ale, one of the bests in its class. Food Pairing: Chocolate crepe.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours dark coffee brown with a shallow creamy froth. Smells of fresh hops like an IPA. Medium nectar weight with ample residual effers. Flavors are dry with a big fresh hoppy bitterness on the finish. Well ballanced. Hoppy for a brown. The leather and cocoa are almost nonexist. Excellent indeed. not malty at all. A well balanced session brew. Highly recommended.

Faintly sweet, malty brown ale aroma in this brew. The appearance is clear brown with a small head. This is one of the most delicious brown ales ever, so clean and crisp on the palate, but rich with flavor at the same time. The subtle flavor of the chocolate malts come through, but not sweet, just pure.

Favourite brown ale. Strong nutty aroma. Dark foam. Malty and hoppy flavors combined together make perfect

Hella fine brown ale. Best ive had, in fact. Chocolate, coffee. Hops do not stand out, conforming to the style. Really really good. Too expensive though.

Great aroma, unbelievably smooth taste. Leaves the pallet refreshed. It's a clean crisp taste that warms you up. Pour is clear. Only downfall is that there is little head during the pour. The crystal and chocolate malts give a dark roasted brew that is light and tasteful... I could drink this all night!

Pours a deep dark brown with tan head. Chocolate/nutty/roasted malt aroma, similar flavor. Very strong coffee notes as well. A bit too easy to quaff, one of my favorite beers ever.
