Tap @ taphouse darlo. Pours amber brown with tight light tan head and same lace. Aromas of sweet toffee malts, a touch of citrus and pine to balance bit it's all about the toasty brown bits. Medium body, med carbonation, light finish giving way to a sweet light malty near cloying but pleasant finish.

You can definitely taste the brown sugar and molasses and that would be the bulk of the beer. I also get grape on the sides of the tongue. The body is surprisingly light for the sweetness and feels slightly too watery from the lack of bitterness. The hops are just there. Overall it’s nice to have something with big sweet malt that doesn’t feel too heavy.

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Dark brown body with slight head. Nose is malty, molasses, sweet. Taste is similar of caramel, malts, oatmeal, brown sugar. Gets hoppier in the finish. Quite a nice beer all around.

Pours chestnut brown, brief tan head. Complex nose with roasted malt dominant, hints of molasses. Flavor follows... roasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, licorice. Flavor impression is sweet, but not cloying, with a slight dry finish. Overall, it reminds me of a lighter American Imperial Stout. Nice brown ale.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Just not digging the brown sugar & molasses sweetness along with the malt flavor. It sounds good when I write it, but it just didn’t work that well IMO.

Fra fat på Bishops Arms Kiruna 30 Apr 16 i hyggelig selskap. Ultradyp brun. Lavt filmskum. Aroma av malt & sjokolade. Smaken behagelig. Litt karamell med innblanding av harpiks. Blir tørr etter hvert.

Clear reddish brown with a faint head. Brown sugar, cinnamon, fruity, nutty, roasted malts in aroma. Very sweet, chocolate, spices in flavor. Low bitterness, medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Seems like a good homebrew, but maybe not a good commercial beer - if that makes sense.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from Rams. Poured a clear brown with tan head and lace. Notes of malt, hop, molasses, caramel, bread, spice and cheap fruits. It sort of gave off the vibe of a pumpkin ale or a special seasonal beer. Not thrilling but certainly drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a filmy white head. The nose is just all soap/cleaner, maybe a little toast. Light to medium sweet flavor with some bready malts, caramel, more cleaner, astringency. Light bodied with average carbonation. Astringent soapy finish. Something is not right here.

Draught at Bear Republic. Clear deep copper liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of toast, citrus, washing up liquid, grain and earth. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of washing up liquid, grain and earth. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Weird as hell.
