Decent English style with bready notes from a nice English Malt finishing with more caramel than brunt notes. The aroma definitely has a basement smell in the best way possible. Definitely sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown, with a reddish hint and a small, tan head. The aroma is nice, light roast, oak, sherry, peat, and floral hops. Sweet and malty, with a light bitterness and some booziness. Medium body, creamy, a little acidic, and malty. This is an excellent brown ale! Nice, mellow nose, and good balanced flavor. Overall an approachable, complex, and delicious beer. I’m impressed!

Brown beer with a foamy tan head. Roasted grain nose with some brown sugar and nutty tones. Sweet beer with lots of brown sugar, dark toast and some tea flavors. Some dark fruitiness, a hint of spice and some bitter coffee finish it out. Pretty tasty brown.

Poured a dark red, almost mahogany color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white head that dissipated pretty quick. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top. Light bubbles coming up from the bottom.
Smelled caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, chocolate, espresso and some rye.
Tasted roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, chocolate, espresso and hot cocoa.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Not a bad brown ale overall. It grew on me a bit as it went down.
