Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Clear dark brown with a reddish/orangey hue and a dense and creamy head leaving a neat lacework. Odd perfumy nose, woody, ashy – strangely skewed. Medium body, very soft mouthfeel, sweet molassy and nutty, again an odd and somewhat skewed wooden character. Very subdued bitterness. Definitely a different Brown Ale. 230711

Ungstrup (32182) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin brown beer. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, nuts, caramel, and brown sugar, leading to a dry finish.

GTAEgeek (1665) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle and Mellow Mushroom. Pour a very dark brown with a thin, persistent tan head. The aroma is mellow roasted malts, caramel, faint coffee, and a little citrus. The flavor is mild and subdued, sweet throughout. The palate is medium to heavy, smooth and creamy, and clean in the finish. Overall, a very understated, but reasonably good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 75cl, no mention of ABV, as Maduro Brown Ale, new American brew Anno 2009, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, malty and slightly roasted, very easy to drink, very balanced, hazy, small head, good brew, yet expensive

Strykzone (6034) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting held at Bigelos. A decent head that is light tan. The beer has a cola appearance and a caramel aroma that is occasionally candy apple. Caramel is also tasted. Rye, complex fruit, and chocolate. A feel that is fairly thin. Not bad at all.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep chestnut colored with a nice lasting and lacing light brown head. Aromas of caramel, roasted malt, nuts and chocolate. Sweet toffee-like flavor with notes of roasted malt. Dry and roasted finish. Tasty and smooth brown ale.

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Brown with a lasting off white head. Very little aroma on this. I could detect a little bit of roasted malt. Flavor is again of roasted malt, a little sweetness and just a wisper of hop bitterness. The roasted malts, sweetness and hop bitterness are in perfect balance. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation. The flavor develops fully after the swallow and stays on the palate for a long time. I actually prefered the aftertaste on this one. Solid brown ale.

Dogbrick (10416) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Sample at the tap room. This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt, nuts and a hint of fruit. Medium body with flavors of earthly malt, chocolate, dark fruit and nuts. The finish is malty with a lingering sweetness left behind. Above average Brown Ale overall.
