A hopped-up English brown, with hopped-up being relative to a normal English brown ale. Plenty of chocolate and Brit yeastiness, too much, actually, resulting in a wort-ish, home brew-leaning brown with a firm, bitter finish. Thin texture, and not a pretty beer.

Pours a clear dark brown/amber with virtually no head. aroma is estery dark fruits and smoky sweet malts. Flavor is sweet with ample malt profile but there is also a fair amount of tartness to it. Finishes smoky on the palate. Homer321 (5255) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2017
