It poured a clear amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was dry and grainy with a hint of roasted coffee and English hops. The taste was dry toasted malt up front with some husky graininess. Not bad.

Bottle from Jacobs enjoyed at somewhere near Bislet
Deep copper, white head. Smells of grain, biscuit, honey, quite boring. Moderate sweet, bread. Moderate bitter finish, earthy hops.

Malty, sweet. Actually tasted some alcohol in the background. Smooth mouthfeel but the taste was a bit harsh.

Bottle. Itís a clear, dark amber to copper colored beer, topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head leaving some lacings. The aroma is sure on the malty side, with a faint spiced touch and a cheesy hint. Some chocolate hints too. Itís full-bodied and a tad too much carbonated, quite dry as well, even though thereís a sweetish touch in the flavor. Thereís an underlying bitterness in this one, lasting for a good while, but I donít think thereís enough of it to deal with the bready malts and chocolate hints. Some hints of tea in there too actually. Overall, a beer I canít really decide whether I like or not, but it tastes quite decent, just donít think I could do a session of it. 130829

Pour is a dark brown with a average tan head. Aroma is a decent caramel with some roasted nuts. Flavor is again roasted nuts, not much else and kinda watery. Not horrible but not overly flavorful.

Is this really different than the brown ale? Because it sure doesnít taste like it. I thought the bartender poured me the wrong beer. It had a light malty aroma but not much on the nose. It poured a a deep brown color, the color is actually a little darker than the brown ale. The flavor was a little nutty and lightly sweet just like the brown ale. This was really disappointing, more lack luster than the brown ale.
