Bottle. The pour was a medium to dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) foamy light brown head that had great retention an offered up some damn good lacing which clung to the glass rather nicely.
The aroma was kind of mild of a roasted nutty malt, a resin hop and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of cocoa, toffee and roasted coffee.
The taste was robustly malty with a hint of toffee and a little nutty at first then became moderately bitter and a tad acidic with a nice coffee note and a touch of chocolate at the end with the flavor sticking around for quite a long time.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy yet mildly dry in texture with a vibrant carbonation.
Overall a Brown Ale that had a lot of flavor and an almost perfect balance of bitter and sweet.
12 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, herbal notes, earthy, a slight nutty character, mild bitterness, decent enough.

Taster EBCF. Pours slightly murky brown, thin tan head. Malty aroma, but soft. More of that on the taste. This is decent. but it’s like SN doing a traditional ale, which is a bit weird. OK but a bit underwhelming cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2017

Half at the rake. Ok drop. Great looking. Carrots and celery but a little too refined. Bland even.

En mere tyk og fyldig brown ale end de fleste. Har en nøddeagtig eftersmag.. undercurrent25 (2142) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Pours a brown colour. Taste is malty with some yeast. Overall quite a nice beer hman43 (1588) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2016
It pours brown with a full tan head that does produce some lacing. There are aromas of nuts, roast, a slight bit of smoke, and slight fruit. It has flavors that feature a bit of smoke, nuts, roast, and a bit of plum. It has a fairly light body with a somewhat smooth finish. Overall, a nutty, smoky brew that is complimented by the roast and plums.
