UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Coffee aroma and taste. Kind of a watery Bellaire Brown but a good session beer nonetheless.

gripweed57 (1380) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Dark brown pour with a foamy beige head with clinging lace. Rich roasted malt nose has a hint of coffee and dark baked bread. Light in body but rich in flavor. Notes of cocoa and earthy roasted malt. Nutty malt finish. Very little hop prescence. Very enjoyable. You don’t see many English style dark milds being made these days. I really enjoyed this.
