A very dark cloudy brown with a thin head. Great nutty flavour with a smooth mouth feel, well carbonated. A very nice beer

Cerveza tostada con caracter 100% americano. Color tostado muy oscuro con destellos caoba, filtrada. La espuma es de color marfil, escasa pero con buena retención. Buen equilibrio entre el dulzor de la malta el amargor del lúpulo. El aroma es suave, a café principalmente. Deja un sabor agradable y ligeramente amargo. Buena cerveza que cumple con las expectativas.

Lively brown ale, off-white head. Caramel, cocoa and raisins in the aroma. Flavour is rich and malty, with some fruit and chocolate and toffee. A touch of bitter, maybe citric, hop in there as well and that aspect of it lingers too. Quite an interesting mix of things going on here.

Keg at ECBF. Nose is dry caramel, tastes similar, nutty, light, quite basic brown.

On tap @ Edinburgh Beer Festival. An acceptable ale which isnt sweet enough to tire and decently refreshing but really nothing to seek out.

3.7
eRock_2013 (471) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2017
From the bottle, this refined brown ale pours an appealing semi-opaque amber-brown chestnut color with a crisp white foamy head, looks rather hearty. Aroma is a uniquely complex malty profile, notes of caramel toffee, cocoa, other roasty malt notes. Taste follows as a thoroughly toasted palate of caramel malty flavors, predominantly of toffee I would say. Some mild hoppy notes, but the malt nuances do the heavy lifting. Medium-bodied and smooth, but not as creamy as advertised. Overall still an excellent display of the wide range of flavors that can be gleaned from malt alone.

Mild, malty, toffee-like aroma. Similar on the taste, though a bit watery. A good "starter" brown ale.
