A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

djoeye (1997) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Fine tan head, dark brown near clear body with ruby tones, various crocheted carpets inside the mug, or almost no lacing. Aroma; fruity malts, grassy fresh hops, wort, raisin, dark sweet syrup. Taste; juicy hops, fruity malts, raisin-prune and kvass influence, leading to a not too longlasting fruity finish. Normal feel, fruity average body, somewhat fizzy carbonation, tasty and moreish.

JDBaker11058 (1411) - Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Appearance: clear dark brown, with a finger of bubbly light tan head and decent lacing. Aroma: good nose full of chocolate, molasses, brown leather, pipe tobacco, roasted nuts, and just a hint of earth. Taste: as the aroma indicates; slightly sweet with tasty brown bread, dark brown sugar, roasty coffee, a hint of milk chocolate, roasted nuts. Finish: finishes a bit leathery, with chocolate and molasses hanging on, but balanced by earthy hops and drying nicely, making for a near-perfect palate. Notes: Superlative brown ale; a new favorite. Had this all over Disney during the family vacation.

Dark brown, in fact chestnut in colour with a large creamy small bubbled light beige head, good clarity with occasional ruby glints.

Saeglopur (533) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 11, 2014
355 ml can from Ammersin 5, Vienna, canned 08/08/14.
Dark copper/brown body, with a medium, creamy, dark beige head, that quickly dissipates completely.
Aroma is a lot of hazelnut, bread, melting chocolate, some coffee, some dark fruits.
Tastes of coffee, nuts, chocolate, dark fruits, subtle fruity hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a quite lively carbonation.
Finishes quite smooth, roasty, a bit dry, a bit wooden.

Really nice! Full, quite roasty, but smooth and with lovely nutty malts. Although I enjoyed the smell more, the taste is also nice, well balanced and just light bodied enough for a great drinkability. Overall not the best Brown Ale I’ve had, but one that I would gladly drink again.
