3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is not typical. Itís smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. Itís a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character itís got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.

Bottle at -believe it or not- a tabletennisbar. Weird! Brownish color, off-white to beige head. And then I got totally distracted because the two girls I was talking to were that nice that I totally forgot about the beer. Wasnít too bad, but not very interesting either. Well this is worthless as a rating but while drinking the beer I had a nice chat with those girls so my priorities werenít with rating this beer..

Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Brown colour. Week fruity aroma. Light acetic/bitter taste. Watery palate. I really dont think this is a very good brown ale. But it is still an ok beer.

(draft) Clear brown-red with small tan head. Aroma is strong malty, caramel, mildly sweet, some roastiness. Tastewise, moderately sweet, very smooth with solid roasted malts and some caramel. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Very good session beer.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.
