UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Draft at Khyber Pass and again at Sugars. Poured a slightly hazy red amber brown with a frothy white head. Bitter malts. Like a slightly sweet molasses tea made with a piece of burnt wood. Coffee notes as it warms. Higher ABV kicks in at the end. Pumped up ESB but seems lacking in character beyond a few notes.
12oz bottle thanks to Eric. Pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is light roast pit fruit rich malts some nutty wood. Taste is more of the nice grain and touch of spice. Bricks (1120) - Delaware, USA - MAR 8, 2017
good looking beer.. brown/amber color, small foamy head. Smell is pretty malt heavy and sweet. Taste is quite sweet, yet smooth... could be a little more carbonated. This is not bad, but not great. floydslip (392) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Deep amber beer with a medium foamy khaki head. Nose of candied nuts, dough, and light caramel. Flavor is quite a bit stronger with caramel malt, brown bread, and almonds finishing with a pronounced astringent bitterness. Flavorful beer.

Beer of the Month Club selection. Clear amber with a small but solid head and spotty lace. Aromas of tea, toast, toffee and hints of leather and floral hops. Caramel malts and toffee sweetness up front offset by a hop kick that adds some bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, sticky oily mouthfeel and a sweet finish.

12 oz. bb Feb 22, 2017. Clear shiny copper-amber with nice legs supporting a thin film of foam. Mild nose has some rich caramel, light toast and a hint of apple. Flavor is toffee turning to a bit of apple and citrus, then a long wood and cardboard finish. Medium-heavy body has a pleasant low-medium carbonation and shows a bit of the abv.

It pours reddish brown with an off-white head. The aroma is hops and bread. The taste is earthy hops, bread, and tea. It’s got nice bitterness with some sweetness. This is good. ryanscourt (1458) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Love the winter warm as being the big strong English ale without the need for all the mulling spices. ehaak26 (499) - - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle from Liquor Barn. Aroma of malt with a dry hop finish. Taste was a good mix of sweet and bitter.
