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.

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.

Hazy chestnut brown colour. The aroma is earthy, with hints of caramel. Moderate overall body and intensity. Fine nuttiness. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Dark brown pour that looks clear red through a light and not much of a head. Slightly sweet aroma of caramel, malt and some nuts. Flavor is the same. Slightly sweet with a light caramel and nut taste and a nice malty and nut finish.

This is my fave Brown Ale. Not overwelming hoppy taste. Very easy to drink

Good brown ale with a nutty and somewhat hoppy taste. Very dark brown in color with a tan head....very sweet. Not a huge fan of nut browns but this was drinkable.

ross (2078) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2004
nutty, slightly hoppy, and still another flat beer from these guys. i mean come on- flat beer taste ok in some styles, but not in any of the styles they have. ugh, a disappointing brown ale that stands no where in comparison to rogue hazel. all that aside, pours brown with a tan head. taste kind of nutty and sweet. not great.

An ok brown ale from Edenton, though it needs some work on the flat finish.
