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.

hopdog (9525) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2006
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.

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 Iíve 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 thatís not too pleasant.

notalush (5210) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5215) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a very small khaki head. The aroma is sour roasty malts. The flavor is sour roasty malts and bitter floral hops. The beer is a bit thin and watery.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2006
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.

hopscotch (9952) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Draft at Fox & Hound, Wilmington, NC... NTB Ernesto Festo í06... Clear brown ale with a large, frothy, beige head. Caramel and toasted nut nose. Malty, nutty, caramel flavor. Leans toward the sweet side of balance and offers up a good bit of buttery diacetyl. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Moderately malty, crisp finish.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Bottle. Somewhat uninspiring. Nice dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is a little thin - some maltiness, but not much else. Flavor is much the same, with an oddly sour presence. Not a bad drink, but nothing exceptional.
