On tap @ Bullfrog. With Andy James and PJ. Light and spicy, minimal aroma and no attention-grabbing characteristics. Not bad but ... Meh.

Nose is caramel & intense dark fruit. Flavor is caramel, a bit of a tart dark fruit twang, toffee in the finish. Interesting.

Has a sweet caramel nose. Pours dark brown with s small head. You can really taste the effects of the lactose on the tongue. It adds a sweetness without being cloying. Finish is clean. Very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, brewpub, backlog. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small one finger frothy beige head. The nose is sweet with some nice chocolate and light roasted malts, a bit of lactose. The flavor is really smooth and easy drinking. With the addition of the lactose, this really has a lot of character versus the average Brown Ale. Chocolate, some roast, light English hops, finishing with a lingering sweetness. Light to medium bodied, almost creamy in texture with soft gentle carbonation. Very nice, I dig it. A unique beer for sure.

Draft at the Brewpub with Andrew, Brendan and big boy PJ. Pours a deep, hazy brown with no head or lacing. Aroma is light chocolate. Mouthfeel is creamy with light chocolate notes and some sweet roasty malts.
