Misty brownish-red body, small off white head. Remarkably lovely aroma, nice coffee mixing with gummibär fruitiness, jaffa cakes. Nice, balanced taste, cocoa mixing with light tobacco and some nice fruitiness again. Not too strong, but I can see no pronounced flaws with this. Ok, maybe slightly too light in the finish. Not much hop. Hmm. A bit disappointing after the lovely aroma that ends up boosting the score. Still, far from a bad beer.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown with a nice beige head leaving lacing. Aroma: buttery malt, fruit, maybe some wood, crayfish... Taste: toffee, malty, buttery (but not really in a bad way), fruity, some kind of candy, hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, soft bubbles. Nice, but not exceptional.

12 ounce bottle that pours a dark brown with a khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, and some nuts. Flavor matches aroma, has a medium smooth body, and really nice every day drinker for a brown ale.

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Pours a deep dark brown with reddish hue (thank you George Costanza). Thick, tan head with above average lacing. Aromas of sour berries, some faint notes of caramel. Taste is pleasantly sour. Little sweetness or bitterness. Medium bodied with a creaminess. Short finish, but a good one. Overall. this maybe more of a sour than a brown, but who cares...it was good.

Mad_Ferret (998) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2011
750 bottle. Hazy brownish red with a medium tanned head that leaves some lace. Slight sourish bready aroma with berries, old nuts and chocolate. Taste is sweet and watery sourish with berries, sour bread and chocolate. Medium to thin body with a bit pointy carbonation. Oh this was dull as a sunday morning.

PotjeBier (2724) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2011
75 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours a dark brown color with a rocky beige head. Malty sweetness and dark (tart) fruits come out in the aroma. Flavor is swwetish, earthy, with tones of coffee and chocolate. Finishes with earthy, roasty bitterness. My first CCB brew, but not very remarkable. OK though.

Good head with tight foaming crown. Dark amber clear body with mellow carmel and nut flavors. Great smooth tasting malts with a hint of hops on finish.
