Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
Draft. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of nuts. The flavor is pretty much like the aroma with a dry finish.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Bull & Bush. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Water, fruity esters, and dirt on the nose. Some sweet toast, bread, and a bit of toffee. Flavor is just kind of bland, but okay. Toffee, bread, and toast. Dirt/earth, fruity esters, and water. Bland, but at least it’s not offensive.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Tap @ brewpub. Somewhat translucent brown appearance. Fairly string nutty characters on top of brown maltiness in the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with below average carbonation. Quite nutty brown malty flavor that’s very smooth and very easy drinking. One of this place’s best beers.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2003
(draught) Dark-deep brown, no head. Nose of molasses, bit nutty - and I get some parsley again. There's hops there too. Taste is soft-sweet, nearly neutral taste. OK for a brown ale or a mild, but not exhilarating. Well-bodied, not thick. some sticky mouthfeel (molasses again?). Brown ale is not really my style, I suppose. This one is not really bad, but I can't go wacko over it.

Draught at Falling Rock on October 12, 2012
Clear dark brown color, tan head. Sweet, malty, caramel taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness. Sweet malty scent.
