The beer is a very dark brown with a 1" head of off white foam and has some nice lacing.
Lots of sweet malt and cocoa in the smell, which I’m digging.
Same for the taste...definitely English style with very little bitterness and nice levels of malt and cocoa, slight nuttiness.
Medium body goes well with a lightish carbonation.
This is a very good Brown Ale served from my Growler.
Sample from can at the Omaha Beer Fest 2017. Poured light brown with an off white head. Aroma was roasted malt, nut. Taste was sweet, toasted malt, nutty. chinchill (4940) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2017
12 oz can in Idaho.
Pours brown but so dark as to be opaque in the glass. Decent bone colored head.
Appealing aroma with hints of coffee, roasted nuts and caramel. The flavor also has these traits, as well as hints of dark chocolate, with the roasted nut aspect particularly noteworthy.
Smooth, medium-full mouthfeel with near medium carbonation. HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAY 17, 2017

Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters showing a clear, mahogany brown, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan froth, and foamy spots of lacing. The nose was slight toast, with touches of caramel, taffy, & cocoa. The taste was similar, light to medium bodied, with a little spritz to the average carbonation, light tanginess, and subtle bitterness. Not altogether exciting, but decently sessionable.
