Sample at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a thick khaki head. Big nuttiness on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Really nice example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheEpeeist (3604) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
22 oz bottle; purchase by September. Clear burgundy brown with a beige coating. Nose is woody grape, mild dark roast and fudge. Medium body with a sharp, sour tang. Taste is crabapple, cider vinegar and mold with hints of cherry. Dusty dry finish with tobacco and ash. I donít think this is supposed to be a sour ale but as such itís not horrible. The aftertaste gets funky after a while. One glass is enough.

Pours a dark brown color with a thin light brown head. Good aroma and flavor of nuts, burnt caramel and malt. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation.

Notched on the side, this one reads "June." I was told thatís a best by date. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light messy lacing roamed around the glass. The smell had a superb blend of rich nutty malts with a light roasty smooth chocolate and ample coffee roaming in and out. The taste copied the aroma nicely to work over a gentle sweet rolling and roasty smooth, slightly smokey and light amount of cocoa. A lingering roasty smooth coffee/cocoa aftertaste leads to a balanced dry to wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a really nice sessionability to it. The carbonation rolled over nicely with a delicate sharpness. Overall, this was a really nice English Brown ale, definitely again.

OldGrowth (3002) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2004
Bottle: Good nose, cream, Malt ball, coffee, almond. Nice orangy/reddish brown color. No head, though ok carbonation. Sweet and bitter, Chocolate, some grapefruit, some metallic. Creamy smooth, a little bitterness on the finish. Tasty, my pick of the four i've had, kinda stouty. Might be a tad out of style with its bitterness.

Tried on tap. I enjoyed the mahogany brown and dark colored amber richness. The aroma is somewhat well incorporated. I get dark malts when I am preparing to feed the gulls. I wonder if it will be enough.

On tap at the brewpub. The pour is mahogany brown to darker amber. The nose has a variety of niceties going on. Dark malts, molasses, nutty, molasses, and basically sweet. The body is medium in texture but boy did I enjoy the smooth undertone. The taste is also sweet and nutty at first with a good lingering bitterness at the end. This is one of their standard brews that they bottle and sell locally in Western, Mass (USA).

22oz bottles from the brewery. Pours mahogony brown with an off white head. Sweet and malty but with just enough hop bitterness to even it out. Caramel, butter and nutty flavors. One of my favorites from this brewery.
