Surprisingly nice beer. Chocolate and roasted coffee that add another layer to the classic Newcastle. Nothing overwhelming and quite smooth with a balanced finish. A good seasonal.

superspak (4880) - Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/31/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, cocoa, coffee, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, cocoa, coffee, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice English dark mild ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

hotstuff (4902) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 11-03-2013 (Bottle from Krogers Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a large ivory head with a long retention, transparent reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character, flavor and taste bland.

This beer is just okay for me. The aroma was roasty really nothing special. I was okay to drink after I got off work a 2nd shift getting home at about 11 pm. Didnt really make me want more than one. I probably would not buy it again.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a thick off white head. Aroma is cocoa and dark fruit. Taste becomes nothing but weirdly bitter dark fruit. Thin. Not enjoyable.

rondphoto (4176) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 16, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear brown with a tan head cover, sheets of lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is surprisingly weak - light edgy malt (if that is possible) that is watery through the palate, adding light bitters on the swallow. Ive always thought Newcastle Brown was a good go-to beer when nothing better is available, but Cabbie doesnt come close to earning that much praise.

pretty close to as advertised in the brewers descripstion, but light all sorund, enough to not be too interesting. Not bad, though.

Transfer from BA review on 12-2-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a cola brown color with a huge and bubbly tan colored head of three finger height. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading over time and leaving a great level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is a mix of a light coffee smell, some roasted malt and a woody like smell. Along with these smells are some lighter notes of licorice and oak smell giving it a rather interesting aroma overall. Taste The taste begins with a sweeter chocolate and roasted malt flavor. The flavors upfront and throughout the taste is rather light, which for the 4.2% abv session style brew is much anticipated. As the flavor advances from the start, some woody flavors as well as a bit of a cola like flavor comes to the tongue. The sweetens fades ever so slightly toward the end with the woody, chocolate and roasted flavors begins joined y a bit of a earthy flavor, to leave a rather light roasted, moderately sweetened and somewhat odd flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the rather thin and watery side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Overall While it was rather light and somewhat flavorful, it just wasnt all that smooth in my opinion. OK and a decent party session, but really nothing more.
