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.

Bottle at hob nob, brevard nc. Deep brown pour. Mild chocolate and roast fill aroma. Butterscotch with chocolate in flavor. Too buttery

Could be a solid beer if not for the lack of an identifying flavor. A very bland beer

Iím not usually a brown ale fan, but this is awesome. Great chocolatey notes to this one and is remarkably smooth. A very easy drink and lighter than I would have thought.

On tap at Cabo Fish Taco, NoDa, Charlotte NC. Clear deep brown liquid with a nice head of white bubbles. Nose is light caramel malt with hints of nuts. Taste is lightly sweet malt that has a nice roasted middle taste resolving into a very faint hint of bitter. Good overall beer.

Originally reviewed: 4/10/12. 12oz bottle, "bottled on" notched on the side - January í12. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark chocolate brown with some ruby tint on the edges. Small tan head caps it off. The nose is sweet with fresh breads, mild chocolate tones, and a sugar-cookie whiff. Moderate depth, carbonation level is just a touch high for my liking, but not too bad. Nice bready flavors. Sweet malty toffee. Light bitterness. This beer is refreshing and a good one to cap off the night. Sweet, malty, tasty.

Tap.medium brown with a red tint and thin creamy head. Smells like bread and green plants and metal. Nice hoppiness but a little watery. Light bodied and a little creamy.

I originally had this a long time ago at a movie theater and I thought it tasted like a bad penny. My palate has expanded so here we go again. Pours brown and hazy. Very small brown head. Smell caramel. Taste is bland to me. I think I served it to cold so thatís more my fault. Still donít think itís worth it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured out of a 12oz bottle ...pours very dark almost black ..has a aroma of roasted malts and a hint of chocolate ...taste exactly how it smells big on roasted malts hints of chocolate is in there on the finish...over all it has a better balance than the Belgian style ale they put out and all in all the only bad thing I can say about this is that I wish it had more carbonation but thatís just my preference ...cheers
