1 litre bottle with new artwork for 2009. Appearance: Rich, transparent mahogany colour with beige three finger head when poured into tall tankard, rapidly receding to a ring and a thin film of head that lasts for the whole glass. Heavy lace. Aroma: Nuts, hint of dark fruits, roasty malts. Taste: Lots of flavour in here. Nuts, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla, liquorice, very subtle dark fruits. It seems like every time you take a mouthful of this beer, there is something else you notice each time. Soft, smooth malty finish. You can’t get a better nut brown ale than this. I’ve tasted nuttier, more coffeeish, or more chocolatey; but this beer from Howe Sound has a ton of complexity. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, easy to drink, slightly silky. Drinkability: Goes down very easily, it’s difficult to savour this because it just begs to be drunk. And at 5% abv, it’s very much a drink you can session. There is nothing wrong with this beer.

1 liter. clear brown with a small, creamy, tan head. very strong aroma of toasted nuts, caramel, brown sugar. palate is medium. flavor are robust brown sugar and caramel with a toast. moderate carbonation. one of the nicest brown ales i’ve tried in a long time. exactly how I think a good brown should be crafted.

The flavour has a good amount of chocolate. There are some nut and licorice notes. Even some coffee in there nearing the finish. It’s not the typical flavour you think of when drinking a brown ale. As well it does have a bit of a thin feel too it. The aroma has good solid chocolate notes and some black licorice. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head with some very spotty lacing I am getting some earthy hops on the finish and it tends to linger on the palate.This is the first beer I have tried from Howe sound. I will most defiantly be trying the rest of there offerings.
