Split a 22oz bottle with some friends from work, one that picked it up while in Vermont. Poured a pretty amber-red color with a small wispy off-white head. Aroma was solid caramel malts. Hops donít linger in this one - itís mostly malt. A lot more enjoyable than I expected.

22oz bottle picked up at the brewpub in Norwich, VT. Pours a murky, deep amber colored body with a thin, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is caramel with a light sweetness, some toast, and a somewhat dry earthy hop backing with some fruit notes. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened caramels with a touch of bread alongside a dry, toasty, earthy, light bitterness. Finishes with some fruit notes before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light, smooth body and a light-medium carbonation. Overall, this isnít bad at all, but its fairly boring. Dry and easy drinking with a light caramel, toast, and earth. Eh...

On draft at the brew pub. Amber in color with a light red hue. Light white head. Not much on the nose. Light hops maybe a little caramel. Malty red ale taste.

On tap at the Norwich Inn Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights and thinnish off white head that says goodbye after the first sip. Smells of toffee and caramel with some earthy bitterness that barely cuts through the sweetness. Slightly fruity esters add a touch of complexity to the aroma. Taste is sweet and malty with toffee and caramel mixed with a hint of mineral water and earthy hops. Surprisingly dry finish for the medium bodied ale. Moderate carbonation level with a sweet sticky mouthfeel. Of the 4 I had at the Norwich this was probably my least favorite. Itís an ok English style ale but not really to my liking.

Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours reddish amber. Nose/taste of sweet malt, gummy bears, hops and resin. Very short dry finish. Medium body.

Bottle; poured an amber color. Aroma of red and sweet malt, earth, bread and caramel. Flavor was basically the same; a bit on the sweet side; but solid.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2009
More chestnut, even brown, than red. Clear body, good foam head, vanishes with very little lace. Taste is malts, maybe some hops, but principal sensation is a bone dry ale. Iíve come to demand more from my alcohol and from my empty calories. The rest of this bottle is for cooking.

In short: A basic toasted and moderately sweet dark beer with nothing standing out
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by an off-white head
In long: Shy and basic toasted nose. Taste of dry fudge, toasted bread, brown sugar and some fruity notes. Sensation of a dry toasted fruit cake. Subtle hops presence with some dry orange peels. Overall rather dry. Could pass as an Irish Ale. But thatís just mixing two boring styles together, like the tv reality show ďAmericaís AccountantĒ.
