Dark and toasty with a nice grass bitterness that us not over powering. Mouthfeel feels good with a full and slightly oily. Burnt wood makes for a fine drinking beer CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to AirForceHops: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of beige head. Has a dry toasted dark caramel malty nose with some English hop character. Starts with average fullness and some light toasted malty sweetness with some nutty flavor and bittering hop balance before a smooth drier, bittersweet finish. A pretty true to style and drinkable dark ale. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 8, 2011

Bottle. Light to moderate malt aromas of toasted and milk chocolate, light pine resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with a hint of toffee and faint spice in the background. Head is large, frothy, light tan with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky reddish brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly dry finish. This is a well crafted Brown Ale, and it walks the line between being bold and easy drinking. AirForceHops (7244) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark oblique brown. Small white head, little lace. Lively carbonation. Full of sediment that you can just barely make out through the murkiness. . Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, roast, hops, resin, light nuts, slight rye, and a hint of chocolate. This brew has a level of complexity. And as a whole, Ipswich is a fine brewery!

12 oz bottle - Pours a medium brown color with a reddish tint, and a decent off white head. Aroma is a solid mix of candied sugar, nutty malts, caramel and fruity hops. Taste is roasted malt which is very nicely balanced by a hoppy bitterness. Suprised, and pleased, by the hoppy bitter finish. I liked this one quite a bit.

A dark reddish brown ale with a thin moka lacing head. In aroma, a nutty malt with light ashes, chick peas and hops.
