12oz bottle acquired in trade (I canít 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.

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 Iíve had by Edenton.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 thatís not too pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bottle. Pours an opaque brown with a nice tan head. Caramel in the nose, some toffee. Taste of sweet malt with faint hops. Head left a nice lace down the side of the glass. I like my brown ales a bit hoppier, but I still liked this one.
