COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer started as a Southern English Brown, and evolved from there. The nose almost comes across as caramel, but when you drink, you will find that it is not sweet. Dark, toasty, and lightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, biscuit, and caramel, this beer is complex but very drinkable. A rustic but balanced beer without a strong hop presence, definitely made for the malt lovers of the old world.
