COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown ale is slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. A show case of fine English malts, floor malted the old way. We use pale, chocolate, and crystal malts to produce a complex, but easy drinking dark ale. Very reminescent of northern English ales.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper brown with a thin white head. Sweet toffee and fruity malt on the nose. Medium bodied, crisp and malty, toffee and a touch of sweetness. Soft malt and toffee into the finish. Super malty.

Pours dark brown with a off white head. Aroma is caramel, roast and chocolate. Taste is sweet with light traces of bitters. Light bodied, smooth and slick.

It pours brown with a tan head and some lacing. Roasted aroma with toasted and roasted flavors.

Old rating. Brown ale standard fare. Nutty and bit doughy. No real chocolate or hop presence. Boring but not bad.

From my future son ion law. Aroma is quite malty. Taste is rather obtuse. Yes, malty carries over and its a little annoying. Reminds me a little of nes castle, no?

nimbleprop (5888) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
12oz pour at Charleston Beer Works, pours a clear brown with some slim head. Nose has brown sugar sweetness, some malt, faint chestnut honey, some dried fruit. Flavor is the same, overly sweet, fig, caramel, some orange. Messy finish.

Smooth malty smell, hoppier than I thought...not bad though, malty finish, waters down with time but improves,

ibrubeer (194) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Draft @ CLT Hilton. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Dark brown color, copper highlights, of white head with pretty good lacing. Sweet flavor, light malt. No bitterness. Fairly high carbonation lends it a medium mouthfeel. Not a bad example of English brown ale.

stangger (604) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Deep, sticky nuttiness. Caramel malt, thick body. English toffee, a touch of hoppiness. Butterscotch. Underrated.

Youngpretender (15) - Morganton, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Decent English style with bready notes from a nice English Malt finishing with more caramel than brunt notes. The aroma definitely has a basement smell in the best way possible. Definitely sessionable.
