Huge thanks to jayg for sharing this one with all of us at the Orlando gathering.

Pours a brown body with ruby highlights. Off white head with medium lacing. Aromas of nuts, sweet malts, dough, roast notes. Flavor is very nutty and sweet, with a nice malt background. Finish is medium lenght and sweet, thin palate but not watery. A nice brown ale, and one I enjoyed more than their IPA.

50cL bottle, courtesy of mgumby10. Thanks, Mike! Pours a hazy, dark brown center; off-white head with good lacing. Pleasant roasted and wet malt aroma; hints of smoke. Medium mouthfeel, showing some tea-like malts and a light roasted quality; dense, chewy malt core; light carbonation; some citrus hops at the edges. One of the more enjoyable brown ales I’ve had. Medium, dry milk chocolate and roasted malt finish.

This brown ale pours a deep black color from a 500ml bottle. Medium sized tan foamy head. Aroma is nutty, roasty and sweet. A medium bodied Brown Ale. Malts are nutty, caramel, slightly roasty and sweet. Hops are earthy and floral. Very lively carbonation. Nice balance. A very drinkable brown ale, not as sweet as one would expect, though. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Very nice. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Low foam and almost gushing out of the bottle. But a good brown ale. Dry, lightly roasted and a rich toffee and caramel. Subdued hops and perfect balance.
