Bottle. Moderate light bread, roasted and nutty for the malt, light to moderate herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast with cocoa powder in the background. head is small, fizzy, light beige with fiar lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark mahogany. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a carbonation between soft and lively. This is one of the best Brown Ales I’ve eve had.

Chilled bottle. Pours a dark red/brown with a fluffy white head. Smell is interesting - caramel, spice, yeast. Flavour is more of the same - mild caramel, faint raisins, liquroice and fudge. Reminiscent of some of the De Molen beers I’ve had, but the taste is a bit watery and toned down by comparison. Mouthfeel is foamy. OK, drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the Local Peasant, dark brownish red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of some grain, chocolate, nice slight grass, into a touch of caramel, toffee, burnt sugars, some nutty notes as well. Taste is a mix of dark red fruits, some caramel, toffee, slight nuts, cocoa powder, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Pretty tasty.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is an extremely dark red-brown beer. It has red currant and rich deep red fruit flavours, slight roasted notes and marzipan and orange marmalade on the finish. This is a cross between an brown ale and a Barley Wine. Superb!

Tap at Stagshead. I feel like I haven’t had brown ale in ages I’ll have to look that up. Pours, you guessed it, brown. Nice nose of toffee and malt. Tastes of roasted malt, toffee, nuts, quite bready, and wood. Creamy and pleasant
