madmitch76 (15335) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2010
22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! Clear dark brown beer. Light palate - a touch watery. Tangy dark malt and a whisper of smokiness. Finishes light and crisp. Comes over as a very light porter. Not bad.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle under the name Meadow Brown. Very dark brown. Leathery ash in the aroma. Taste is sour with liquorice sweetness and slight dryness. Plenty of flavour in this distinctly porterish mild.
