22 fl oz bottle into pint glass. Cocoa/chocolate nose. Hazy red/brown beer with two finger white head. Sparse carbonation. Flat mouthfeel, oily texture. Finish is coffee bitterness and a hint of fruit cordial. Somewhere between a brown ale and a stout. Much nicer as it warms.

Overall pretty good brown. Poured an amazingly clear brown with nice layered tan head. Aroma subdued but brown malts evident. Taste of biscuit lightly toasted barley and some toffee sweetness. Way better than that swill Newcastle. I’d get again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a thick foam head. Rich malt aroma and flavor. Very nutty. Doesn’t have any sweetness to speak of. A little bitter even. Hop presence late in the palate. Middle of the line brown for me. Not bad.

Everything I want in a Brown Ale. Delicious malt body, not overly sweet, balanced hops. Really enjoyed this beer!
