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.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2007
Draft pint at the brewery; Very dark, dark brown with just a thin stratus of foam. Giant malt-ball aroma and it carries forward to the flavor ... sweet yet heavy ... malt, vinegar ... where’s the fish and chips? (#2822, 4/27/2007)

Draft at the Shockoe Craft Beer Festival in Richmond, 8/26/06: Rich chocolate amber color; metallic nuttiness and a rich malt footing. Nice little bite in the end. Decent brown ale.

dpjuart (1094) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2007
Aroma’s of Carmel and raisins. Very thin white, cream-colored head. A little fruity for a nut brown, with the nuttiness at the finish. Not bad overall, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Body is a ruby brown, no head. Aroma is fruity for a brown, I am catching plums, fruit punch, light caramel. Taste is a lot of raisens up front followed by light caramel, and that is about it. Nice label though.

hopdog (9990) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade (I can’t find who this came from, if it was you, let me know!). Poured a deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, light caramel, and some nuts. I was also getting an earthiness to it. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, toasted malts, and nuts. Thinner body.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is copper and malt; very weak and not very pleasant. Flavor is nuts, caramel, bitter and not very tastey. This is the worst beer that I’ve had by Edenton.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Draft at the Durham World Beer Festival. Clear amber with a creamy off white head. Certainly nutty nose and flavor, something is off here. Like bad walnuts. Eh.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Dark reddish-copper brown body with an ecru-colored body. Putrid, sour aroma - maybe some nuts? Smells yeasty. The flavor is very nutty, and sweet, with somewhat caramel flavors. Sticky, bitter, buttery finish that’s not too pleasant.

notalush (5393) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle from ross - deep amber pour with large but short-lived head - almost tart, earthy aroma, with herbs and a touch of nutmeg - thin-bodied and thin-flavored - hints of cherries, caramel and milk chocolate, all of which taste artificial - almost sour finish - really not that enjoyable.
