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.

Aroma is slightly fruity but not very strong. Flavor is watery and bland with just a hint of roasted malt. I can’t really taste any hops at all. Overall a boring beer but I gave it an extra point because it can be used as a marinade for grilled meats.

A decent brown ale. A bit strong for style and definitely undercarbonated (as are all this brewery’s beers). Good balance though.

Cloudy brown with a quickly fading head. Aroma is surprisingly a little fruity with some hops and a little roastiness. Flavor has somewhat of an unwelcome tart berry-like sourness with some notes of nuttiness and a hint of coffee. This doesn’t come together well at all. Ends tasteless and watery. Medium thin body, lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Not recommended.

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Nice dense, creamy head of very fine bubbles. Settles nicely. Low carbonation. Nice roasted grain and nutty aroma. Bit of crusty bread also. Color is a dark brown with a hint of orange. Medium body. More roasted grains and a slight sourness that was unexpected. Perhaps a little dark fruit with the slight sourness. Interesting. Bitterness at the finish with a lingering roastness. An ok brown ale but a little different.

Bottle. Dark brown body with splashes of deep red throughout. Small off-white head. Nose is sweetened coffee, caramel and light raw nuttiness. Taste is roasty malts, more nuttiness, light coffee and a caramel sweetness. Some creamy notes in this as well. Almost tastes like sweetened hazelnut coffee. Not bad! Body is leaning towards the thin side but is still smooth and a creamy creamy despite a light lingering bitterness. Finishes with more caramel and coffee with light creamy malts, nuts and light pumpernickel notes. Not bad!

definate coffee aroma and flavor, a bit thin for style, not bad, somewhat like a mild porter

I’m a pretty big fan of nut brown ales and this one wasn’t one of the better examples of this style. It was decent and drinkable enough, but I wanted more out of it.

Bottle. My brother Rick brought this one for me to sample. Hazy nice chocolate brown with almost no head on the pour. Nose is of slightly roasted coffee with almond notes. Let’s begin... mmmm, this has decent flavor and an immediate spicy bitterness and a slight coffee flavor. It tastes like it smells, and that is a good thing. A little too carbonated for a brown ale in my opinion, but not bad at all. I like the toasted quality and it finishes nicely. Much better than I expected.

Pours brown with aroma of malt, peat, cabernet, almonds. Tastes as it smells, with a smooth nutty, peaty, cabernetish finish. Solid complexity and balance. Edenton’s pale gold beers are average, but their brown, amber, and APA are rock solid.

Mahogany with a foamy head and lace. Nutty aromas with some roasted malts. Fruity and bitter hops. Roast malt flavors with hints of smoke and bitter hops. Some biscuits around. Finishes malty and bitter.
