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.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is copper and malt; very weak and not very pleasant. Flavor is nuts, caramel, bitter and not very tastey. This is the worst beer that Ive had by Edenton.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Draft at the Durham World Beer Festival. Clear amber with a creamy off white head. Certainly nutty nose and flavor, something is off here. Like bad walnuts. Eh.

Dark reddish-copper brown body with an ecru-colored body. Putrid, sour aroma - maybe some nuts? Smells yeasty. The flavor is very nutty, and sweet, with somewhat caramel flavors. Sticky, bitter, buttery finish thats not too pleasant.

notalush (5748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle from ross - deep amber pour with large but short-lived head - almost tart, earthy aroma, with herbs and a touch of nutmeg - thin-bodied and thin-flavored - hints of cherries, caramel and milk chocolate, all of which taste artificial - almost sour finish - really not that enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a very small khaki head. The aroma is sour roasty malts. The flavor is sour roasty malts and bitter floral hops. The beer is a bit thin and watery.

Parrothead (294) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours an opaque brown with a nice tan head. Caramel in the nose, some toffee. Taste of sweet malt with faint hops. Head left a nice lace down the side of the glass. I like my brown ales a bit hoppier, but I still liked this one.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Draft at Fox & Hound, Wilmington, NC... NTB Ernesto Festo 06... Clear brown ale with a large, frothy, beige head. Caramel and toasted nut nose. Malty, nutty, caramel flavor. Leans toward the sweet side of balance and offers up a good bit of buttery diacetyl. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Moderately malty, crisp finish.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Bottle. Somewhat uninspiring. Nice dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is a little thin - some maltiness, but not much else. Flavor is much the same, with an oddly sour presence. Not a bad drink, but nothing exceptional.

Very mild aroma, but a dark, dark color. Smooth going down, but didnt offer all that much in the flavor dept. Decent.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle thanks to Ross! Thank you. Pours a lighter shade of brown, leaving room for light to shine through. Head is one finger of beige froth, minute lace. Nutty malt aroma. (Roasted chestnut, boozy pecans) some mlk chocolate, and mildly hopped. Flavours are brown sugar with sweet burnt nuts, roasted malts, caramel apples. Finish is watery, but slightly creamy, and enjoyable. A good nut brown, if there ever was one. Thanks Ross.
