_angst_ (4406) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on September 9. Pours chestnut brown with a thin white head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is dry with lots of chocolate. There is also a sweet bitterness to it. I expected a fuller taste and was a bit disappointed when I felt like there was something missing. ----- Had this with a hot red curry thai stew which mixed very well with the beer. The spicyness of the stew completed the flavour of the beer in a nice way.

VsXsV (3875) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2011
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown liquid with medium off-white/light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, oats, toffee, caramel, cedar, spices, cardamom and some light fruity/piney hops. Taste is quite malty, chocolaty, light sweet, very light sourness and light to medium bitter. Very balanced and enjoyable. Medium bodied with good carbonation and a bit sticky mouthfeel. More refined taste than most brown ales and less hoppy than American ones. Really balanced and well made.

Dedollewaitor (15435) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours ruby dark amber with a lasting creamy white head and lacings. Sweet nose of wood, oat and chocolate. Flavor adds a nutty and earthy touch. Medium bodied. Full of flavors for a 5,5 % beer - not to keen on the earth though.

EithCubes (5485) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Draught from the LZR WLF. Dark brown pour, light beige head. Nose is woody, light chocolate and toffee nose, reminds of a trail mix brew. Lightly juicy, bittersweet but somehow hollow inside (a little too silky?). Medium body, touch of stale/sour tang, but very good overall.

blomster (288) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, alcoho. Smells really goodl. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt in the taste. Fairly light body, abrupt finish. I can’t help but feeling dissapointed when drinking it...really nice aroma but it doesn’t live up to that all the way through.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving Glass: Poured from bottle into pint-like glass. Appearance: Rich chocolate brown with a slight reddish cast. Moderate sized tan head with very slight lacing. Aroma: Caramel, chocolate, oats and some coffee and nuts. Taste: Heavily roasted for a Brown, with lots of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Slight oat and English-style hops. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium creamy body, semi-dry finish. Overall: Delicious ale even if it is almost more of an Oatmeal Stout than a Brown Ale.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Pours a very dark brown with a small brown head without noticeable carbonation. A very brown ale indeed. The aroma contains molasses and nut, a hazelnut aroma. The smell is also heavily malty, making for a rich aroma well appreciated. The taste is a dark and sweet malt that tastes like coffee. If you think of this beers origins you can imagine a hearty cigar tobacco leaf taste. It is thick tasting with a fair share of hops to interfere with the alt. Palate is heavier than your usual ale but not overly sweet or sticky. Its a decent gimmick ale and stands out in the weak Florida brewing locale.
