3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a finger’s worth of creamy colored head. Sly messy lace.
The aroma had some coffee, toasted nuts and chocolate. Mild caramel in the background.
The flavor took all of those previously mentioned tastes to blend sweetly. Mild roast. Even a milder bitterness. Smooth sweet nutty to chocolatey sort of aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation.
Overall, good brown ale that I would have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, slight smokiness, roast and dry hops. Flavour of dry toasted malt, English malts, light roast and a fairly pronounced hop character punching through. Surprisingly flavourful for an English brown. Great stuff.
