2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big frothy white head that sticks round really well. Beer has a red tinge to an over all dark deep brown clear appearance and nice medium carbonation.
Aroma of bitter malt. Taste is much the same a bit of a let down something bitter, coffee like but more estringent. Was expecting a inviting and mellow beer, this is not. Bitter malt dominates this beer and unfortunatly not enjoying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown color with a dense creamy white head. Mocha malty aroma. Really rich and chewy malty flavor with coffee, cocoa nibs, and star anise. Subtle but fresh hoppy finish.

This is a very good clear dark bown ale, tight packed light brown head lasted forever. Slight burnt grain with a sweet appealing aroma. Hop and malt character is great. A little hoppier than usual BA and goes well with pork and apple pie.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a large tan head. Good lacing and head retention throughout. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, dates, walnuts fill the senses. Taste is of dark toasted caramel malt, brown sugar, dark dried fruit, dates, with some nice walnut flavor and earthy hops. Palate is a well balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness with a slightly sticky medium body. Finishes with some sweet roasted caramel malt, a bit of brown sugar, dried fruits with some good earthy hops for balance, ending has a lingering roasty nutty walnut flavor. Overall an excellent flavorful, and tasty well balance brew. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown almost black with a big beige head and a slight coffee bean/dark choc aroma very faint. The taste is much better.. full of flavour and what i have come to expect from 8wired beers. Slight hopped resin splash of flavour backed by a nice light dark malt canvas. Overall the best brown ale i have had to date.

Basic goodness brown ale but cant find anything great in this. Decent brown ale. Some malty notes and the finish is a bit complex dry but hard to describe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
sampled @Melna Ziema, ALEhouse, Riga, Latvia, 26th January 2013.
Aroma - sweetish, floral hops. Pours copper reddish with huge white-off top, good big spotty lacing. Taste - far away sweet, lively fresh hopped bitter bite. Good hop dry finish. Medium body, watery palate. IPA like ale with very refreshing, live hopped palette. My first example which is really like soap on nose to me - although I have heard many times about DIPAs the same and have consistently defended that those ales are not soapy - they are just best ales in the whole...
So I didn’t found brown ale in this sample.
