4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fantastic beer from one of my all time favorite brewers. Firm, clean, deep and perfectly balanced. In my book a modern brown ale is hard to execute, it takes a solid brewer to make me reverent over a style like this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A malty nutty brown ale with a generous refreshing fruity hopping. My type of beer.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed a few weeks after purchase, however fresh this Danish beer can be in a Vermont store.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a large beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is an inviting blend of citrusy hops over a layer of cashews and hazelnuts. In mouth the beer offers a rather corpulent body for a 6% brew with plenty of carbonation. Creamy cake malts, hazelnuts, dense whole-wheat bread, cashews, cacao. That solid nutty malt backbone is almost dominated by the refreshing citrusy hops (grapefruits, others…). I love hoppy brown ale, I’d like it to become a trend like Black IPAs or the more recent trend of White IPAs. This Autumnic Fallout is a very good example on how the harmoniously match a fat creamy nutty malt backbone with a sharp fruity IPA hopping. Looks like I appreciated this beer more than most people here, and I may rate beers against the grain but I never said I was better than everybody else here (I think it all the time but never said it).

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a foamy 3 finger light tan head. Aroma is hoppy underlaid by something suggesting funk. Med + body. Flavor has a bit of chocolate, lots of mixed hop. As it flows away, it goes less chocolate, fairly earthy, and maybe yet a bit funky. Funky. Earthy. Who can tell? Finishes dry, bitter, tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours a murky mahogany brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, brown grainy malt tones, citric fresh hops and hints of grass and bread dough. Taste is the rather odd, but very assertive and pleasant combination of American peachy-fruity hops and brown malts: caramel, peaches, melon, hints of grass, licorice, grapefruit and chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.
