UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 a brown ale for ipa fans. it’s hoppier than your run of the mill brown ale, and really drinkable, especially on tap. its a fairly different animal on tap - i get the feeling its a little maltier when bottled, could be me though. i’ve actually come across this beer in bars more often in D.C. than in new york.

Bought at a local supermarket in Panama. $2.59. Drank from Bottle. 12 fl oz. Good aroma, kind of coffee. Initial taste reinforces coffee and chocolate. Aftertaste a nice bitter one. Very surprised! One of the faves

"Not seeing the 87/94 percentile scores. Maybe it was a lil too cold. Came across as a decent brown. Caramel and light roasted coffee with hints of chocolate. Average body, with a pleasant aftertaste."

morri (202) - NORWAY - AUG 22, 2014
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Small tan head. Clear reddish brown body. Aroma is roasted malt, toffee, wood and dark fruits. Feels a little sharp and salty on the tongue at first, with a sweet aftertaste. Dry on the palate.

Als je het uit schenkt krijg je bijna geen schuim. De geur is wel lekker. De smaak valt best mee. Geen top bier, maar het valt goed mee

Dark brown pour with thin off white head. Smells of toffee and moderately strong alcohol. Taste is smoky and feel is smooth but not light in mouth and has a mildly bitter finish. Just okay, drinkable but won't buy again
