3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep rust hue topped with a thick and lasting light tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, and earthy, resinous hop notes. Caramelized malts parallel grassy and bitter hops throughout, finishes with a lingering hop profile. Lively carbonation lends an airy feel to the brew, quite sessionable. A good one, although I tend to go more for the malt-forward versions of the style.

Dark brown pour, tan head. A complex roasted coffee in the aroma. Some caramel in the back. Getting som bitterness from the coffee in the taste, but smooths out fast. Very sweet finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark, mahongy brown beer with a medium and yelloyish blond head. The nose of huts, some chocolate, roastiness, bitter almond and bread. Also nice and slightly aromatic hoppyness. Taste of nuts, bitter almond, fresh woodness, aromatic hops. Medium bodied, smooth and medium carbonation, suave to drink. Nice Brown Ale with positive and fresh flavours, lots of nuts. One of the best Brown Ales that I have tasted.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 35.5cl. Pors very dark brown, almost towards black with foamy, stable head. Aroma is biscuits, sweet malt, coffee, dark fruits, toffee, chocolate, nutty and slight hobs. Flavor follows the nose, with sweet malt and caramel, some chocolate and toffee, faint dried fruits, and moderate bitter, slight dry finish. Soft to average carbonation, medium bodied. Gladly surprised.

Slight metallic aroma. Very lean, not to much going on. Bottle low to medium carbonation. To be expected for a macro brewery.
