3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown body with a quite large, tan head that ends up as a thin layer. Very good lacing. Malty, sweet and strong aroma of dark caramel, nougat and chocolate, backed up by some gentle hoppy notes. Strong flavour that follows the aroma, with some additional vague citric hints. Light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Light-bodied, pretty dry and with a bit watery mouthfeel. One of the better brown ales I’ve had.
[65 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 years after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

A little chocolate and a little freshly baked bread in the aroma, slightly sweet taste and a shade of dryness on the finish. Great weight and an overall delight. From a bomber.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chocolate, nuts and roasted malt in the aroma. The roasted malt and chocolate really does taste enjoyable to the fullest. Exquisite bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Really a good beer as quickly drink up. Luckily it was on big bottle. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Clear crimson, strong beige head. Chocolate, toffee and nuts on the nose. Very smooth, sweet but not overly so. Nuts and toffee, finishes on a bitter note. Very nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at 83° in Carlsbad, CA.
Clear, very dark mahogany with a khaki head and good lacing.
Very nutty aroma of hazelnuts, chestnuts, chocolate and roasted malt.
Equally nutty taste of hazelnuts, chestnuts, peanuts, roasted malt, cocoa, bitter orange, rusty metal and a touch of tartness.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
I was disappointed by this over-the-top nutty beer. Beyond a certain level of intensity, the nuts add an astringency and do not se m to blend well with the other bitter flavors in this beer.

Keg at Brewdog Brum. Proficient yes, but couldn’t Professor Profile this one. Sweet, cakey. Certainly nutty - like caramelised hazelnut topping on a krispy kreme donut. A bit sickly maybe.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog. Dark brown, small white head. Aroma is musty with some coffee. Body is medium, quite foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste is big rounded malt, slightly sour-ish, coffee vibe, jammy raspberry, old ale. Good.
