An English-style strong ale. This brown ale has great malt depth and drinks like a session beer.

Pours bright mahogany into a Sam glass. Bright micro white head with little retention recedes to skim rim. Sour caramel aromas. Thin with sweet molasses and toffee upfront turning to bitter dried fruit in the lasting finish.

rjplumer (536) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Roasted fruity malt aroma. Brown ruby red body. Sweet and spice upfront which is quite different. Has a soft silk mouth-feel.Sort of a boozy feel in background. Finish is mildly bitter and leaves you wanting more. Very drinkable and at this abv be careful.

Stoned99 (273) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Waterbury Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: toffee, caramel, sugar. App: brown - Coca Cola-ish color with small white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: Medium body, medium sweetness with light short sweet finish. Overall: Not too sure about this one, Feels like I’m going to drink a Scotch ale than the taste fades away. Even though my expectations weren’t high I’m a light disappointed.

Metalchopz (2483) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Enjoyed in Vermont. Definitely unfiltered with lots of floating particles. Copper colour with a light beige head and some creamy lacing. Aromas of fruity malts with hints of roasted ones. Some caramel as well and nuts. Much of the same for the taste. A nice mix between a brown and red ale.

60minuteman (939) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Dank aroma of malt, earth, chocolate and the alcohol is effervescent. Thick and malty texture. Sticky palate. Taste is slightly metallic and sweet...weird combination. Finishes malty again with cocoa and oak. It is strong.

Bebum (381) - - SEP 27, 2014
Brown, SRM 23, quickly dissipating head, leaving no lace. Medium body, slight in flavor, alcoholic but smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation, avg length. Sweet taste, mostly because of low bitterness, Yeasty, particularly in the finish, malty, nutty, evoking pecan and walnut, guaraná Antarctica . Too alcoholic to be a session drink, too unexciting to be anything else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is thick and murky, full of sediment. Nose is promising, nutty and sweet. However, taste is a let down. Caramel, maple, walnuts, lots of toffee and plum. The taste stays for a second after you swallow and then disappears pretty completely. Mediocre
