3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown foamy head the dissipated slowly and produced decent sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted malts, a mild resin hop and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of coffee, molasses, a bit of caramel and a light chocolate.
The taste was a malty sweet with ever so light chocolate and caramel notes early on with the latter being bitter and having a strong dose of coffee with a nice hint of hops at the end. The flavor lasted a little longer that average with the hoppy coffee flavor settling nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and a tad watery in texture with the body being somewhere around medium and having a moderate carbonation.
Overall a really tasty Brown Ale with a slightly sweet bold middle and nice light malty, hoppy finish.

En forfriskende og fyldig ale, den smager lidt af lakrids og har en god sødme.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

On tap at Burger Bar. Pours dark brown, clear, single finger tan coloured head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee, spice, chocolate...Initial taste of nuts, coffee, chocolate, then some spice, caramel. Very nice.

This is a very good brown ale, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It pours dark brown with a fast-fading head. The aroma is walnuts, light molasses notes, some nutmeg. The flavor is cereal and bread malts, a little bit of hop burn, and very subtle candy glaze on the finish. Good beer.

Aroma is fairly mild and just barely meets the test for a Brown ale. In the flavor department it’s much better, still could be fuller, rounder, and richer. Tad over carbonated too.
