3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, my bottle. Slightly hazy deep mahogany with a smallish beige head. Sweet roast caramel/chocolate malt aroma, a little yeasty, some green hops, hints of lactose. Taste is also roast sweet malt, quite a nutty and dusty character, tries to finish dry and a little bitter. Average body, somewhat flat, lightly syrupy - for a brown, it’s okay - could have more character, but it doesn’t anger me like some do.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 16 Apr 2010) Dark brownish amber colour with a huge, beige head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit, dark bread and a hint of citrus. Malty, slightly toasted taste with dark fruit, dark bread, nuts and a touch of citrus in the finish. Medium body, balanced bitterness, slightly sweetish. Not the best from Bells, but a nice and tasty brown ale

12oz bottle. Minimal tan head, brown color with a red-orange hue, visible sediment. Beer starts with a strong, very pleasant aroma upfront, and gradually finishes with astounding smoothness. Medium but very smooth carbonation lends to a creamy mouth-feel. Sweet dried fruit, nut aroma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/28/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Seminole! Hazy brown pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring and laces a bit. Nice aroma with a bit of caramel, light chocolate, and even some butterscotch in a good way. Sweet chocolate flavor at first that transitions to caramel and some sort of yummy pie spiced type thing. Tasty!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy bubbly dark amber-brown with a small diminishing tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit, spices, brown sugar, some hops and nuts -- a hint of metal in there too. Simple and straightforward malty flavour with some nuts and a mild hoppy finish. I got some metal in the flavour as well. Medium bodied. It’s a good version of the style, it’s just not one of my favourite styles to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice medium brown color and large tan head, great lace. Sweet and nutty aroma. Fruity addition to the taste. Smooth balance between sweet maltiness and bitter hoppiness. Among the better brown ale out there, recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy light brown with a decent white frothy head. The aroma is nuts, some earthy malt, and some raisins. The taste is smooth and full: a nice balance of nutty and burnt malts flavors with dark fruit and bitter hops. Easy to drink and yet offering a good bit. A good beer I enjoyed.
