Draft at Summit Public House. Has a really nice dark color, and a nice head, but the head has very shallow. Pretty good flavor, with some sweetness (fruit maybe).

Draft wob cap hill. Malt forward, pronounced hop bitterness. Roasted, almost burnt black malt flavor. Dark amber, light brown color. Medium bodied throughout. Middle leads to dark fruit, prune, alcohol, chocolate. Finish is highly hop bitter and it lingers slightly unpleasantly on the tongue. Overall highly hopped bitter flavored malty balanced west coast ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance had a brown colored body with a slim white foamy head that simmers down to a quick filmy lacy looking spotted head.
The smell was slightly grainy with a little nuttines and chocolate.
The taste had a mainly sweet nutty maltiness. The aftertaste is sweet nutty and malty. The finish is slightly dry yet sweet and lingering.
The palate was about a light to medium in body, and has a decent sessionability.
Overall, good English Brown Ale that I would have again.

Bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy dark brown color with very little head on it. Nose has a little caramel in there, as well as some roasting on the background. Taste has a little bitterness to it, with a lot more roasting coming through. Feels a little harsher than I would have liked.

Bottle from Lets Pour. Brown ale with a nice apple taste to it. Pretty good and easy to drink at 5%. Better than the ratings on this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap pours a dark brown color with a tan head that leaves ok lacing. Smells of roasted malt, banana, chocolate and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a nut and Belgian yeast flavor. Mouthfeel is heavy and watery with ok carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good brown ale with a Belgian twist but falls short on the appearance and palate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark dark brown with some deep ruby hues, moderate tannish head. Malty sweet, flavors of raisins and dark toffee, some muddled unspecific sharp caramel twang. Esthery finish, belgian notes abound with peppery and phenolic clove-like flavors, slightly slick mouthfeel. Bittering is a bit lacking and could use a bit more to balance out the sweetness.
