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.

Copenhagen 2/4 2015. 33 cl bottle from Føtex. Pours clear reddish brown with off-white head. Settling in thin layer. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Soft carbonation. Taste follows the nose but supplemented by a bitter twist and a slightly weird burnt aftertaste. By all means a fine brown ale.
