COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown ale is slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. A show case of fine English malts, floor malted the old way. We use pale, chocolate, and crystal malts to produce a complex, but easy drinking dark ale. Very reminescent of northern English ales.

Draught. Pours copperish brown with almost white head. The aroma is caramel, with hints of cotton candy and a few fruity notes. The flavor is caramel and root-beer, some sugariness. Bark comes out in the middle and leads to a semi-sweet finish with some carbonation.

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2007
On draught at 42nd Street Oyester Bar in Raleigh, NC. Pour kinda looks like coke with a small light-tan head. Aroma is malty, with some nuttiness and a little caramel. Flavor is nutty again and slightly hoppy. Easy drinking brown.

morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Single from Total Wine in Huntersville, NC. Im not sure what beer the previous raters have been drinking, but this beer is much better than their average rating. Pours a nice brown color, indicative of a raisin caramel mix, which is present in aroma and in taste. Very nice.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2007
Draft pint at the brewery; Very dark, dark brown with just a thin stratus of foam. Giant malt-ball aroma and it carries forward to the flavor ... sweet yet heavy ... malt, vinegar ... wheres the fish and chips? (#2822, 4/27/2007)
Earlier Rating: 8/27/2006 Total Score: 3.6
Draft at the Shockoe Craft Beer Festival in Richmond, 8/26/06: Rich chocolate amber color; metallic nuttiness and a rich malt footing. Nice little bite in the end. Decent brown ale.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2007
Aromas of Carmel and raisins. Very thin white, cream-colored head. A little fruity for a nut brown, with the nuttiness at the finish. Not bad overall, but wouldnt go out of my way to find

Enniskillen (2046) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Body is a ruby brown, no head. Aroma is fruity for a brown, I am catching plums, fruit punch, light caramel. Taste is a lot of raisens up front followed by light caramel, and that is about it. Nice label though.

Bottle from Ross; Nose of caramel, vanilla, and roastiness; clear walnut with a small offhwite head; flavor graininess, some caramel, and some light sourness.
