3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at Gomers in Lees Summit, Missouri. 2AD (Bottled on April 4, 2012) perforated stamp on the label. The pour is light haze brown copper with a two inch light tan head that is quite lasting. The aroma is fruit caramel sweet malt, along with a touch of yeastiness. The taste is nutty malt, only a bit of the malt fruit sweetness of the nose, along with sort of an off grain flavor. The palate is light to medium bodied, carbonation level pretty high, sweetness of dried fruit comes out a bit in the finish. Just ok.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper brown with thick and stable off-white head. Intense aroma of malt and caramel with subtle notes of roast. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of roast, dried fruit, caramel and nuts. Dryish aftertaste. Low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. A very decent Brown Ale.

I had this at Global Brew. Aroma is nothing special. Not a big fan. I would prefer not to have this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från beernavigator. Kastanjefärgad, klar, lågt beige skum. Karamell, farinsocker och kolaremmor ihop med bärig humle med en liten röd citrustouch och såpa. Söt, farin och kolasmak, lite kaffe, torrare avslutning med tallfenolisk humle som drar lite väl mycket åt såpa och torr citrus, medelstor beska. God, rolig och lite annorlunda brown ale.

Bottle from Good Spirits Co., Glasgow, Scotland. Quite a nice little ale; very sweet aroma with malt, quite a complex mouthfeel and taste featuring a smooth malt and caramel and dry coffee like finish, fairly wet and tin on the mouth. A nice little beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, Maruhn, BB 04/2014. - Expressive, modern and delicately composed brown making surprising use of Citra as single hop.
Nose of burnt toffee, liquorice and sparkling citrus-infused foam. Taste is layered and well-composed, consisting of the more tradional but lively (roasted chest)nut, raisin and caramel aromas pitched against a dry mf and palate with the astringent acidity of tanned leather, which I first thought a result of the roasted malts, but probably derives from the Citra spice adding a refreshing zesty layer to a rich and creamy brown ale. Stylewise brown ale, the wet labrador of dark beers, willl not soon become my favourite, but the innovative skill that went into this rich & balanced brew is to be admired.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I can’t believe how low this is rated here. One of the deepest browns I have ever tasted. Sweet molasses on the nose with some caramel. Complex taste of sweet caramel and slight hops. About as far as you can push a brown flavor wise.
