4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Dark reddish brown brew with a beige head. Delicious roasted and fresh hoppy aroma with notes of caramel and lots of tropical fruits and citrus. The taste is medium sweet and heavy bitter with notes of dates, licorice and fresh citrus. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonate. Long bitter finish. A brown ale far above the usual dull standard of the style.

A bit of toffee in the aroma. Looks great. This is actually quite good. Smooth, with ahint of sweetness, not nutty at all. Pretty good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From tap @Mikkeller. A thin layer of tiny tanned bubbles, over a hazy mid-brown body. Hop resins and citrussy fruitiness in the aroma, properly backed by sweet-scented, light nutty and caramelly malts. Taste is fully balanced. Fruity flavoring hops along with a fine toasted, caramelly and light nutty malt flavor. Solid bitterness. Medium full. Fruity bitterness linger in a lasting finish.
What a Brown!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. A true brown ale with a dark brown tea like colour and an even puff of light brown foam skimming the surface. Malty biscuit aromas are pleasing on the nose without being overbearinbg. Smooth and easy to drink with a mildly warming flavour and moderately creamy mouthfeel.
