UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 35.5 cl bottle. Label says 5.9 % abv. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Chestnut color. Nice, tan head. Delicious, fruity aroma - very well-rounded. The flavor is pleasantly fruity, citrusy hopped, caramely sweet, lightly roasted, and nicely rounded. Superbly balanced. Easily drinkable.

Pours deep brown/burgundy, with a medium, foamy, white head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar, nuts, and cabernet. Tastes malty, nutty, with a slightly sweet caramel, brown sugar finish, yet maintaining a level of crisp dryness. I like Brooklyn beers, and this one is very well made.

Deep brown, with very little head. Aroma is sweeter than most brown ales- kinda fruity, and definitely full of flavor. Taste is sweet, medium bodied, and nice. Very drinkable beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Another good brew from Brooklyn. Pours deep ruby/brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is subtle with malt, fruit (cherry?), toffee, hint of hops. Tastes exactly like the malt described in the commercial description, a very nice blend. Has some coffee, nutty, roasted flavors, and later some tartness and bitterness provided by the black malt and hops. Worth your time.

This brew has a very nice mix of dark, roasted, coffee, nutty malt flavors, nice balance, and late tartness. Certainly a good brown, but it’s not as drinkable as it should be. I like other's better, and think this may be a tad over-rated

Roasty Chocolate flavor. Its definitely more creamy than other Browns I’ve had. Great flavor. Not to hoppy or malty. Definitely a very fine beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours medium amber/brown with a 1 finger white head.
Aroma is doughy, slight nutty hints and chocolate bitterness. A bit of hops in the finish, but the malt dominates.
