Just too hoppy. Not a big fan of overly hoppy beers. More of a malt guy. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Dark brown with a huge white head. Aroma of malts and caramel. Smooth body, taste of caramel and dark malts, sweet at first than balanced by hop bitterness. Very good ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #1165 - 10.07.2014 - Bottle from CBI, enjoyed in a water glass at the Super 8 in Saskatoon. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Really really light in body for a brown ale. Taste is bold roasty, light sweetness, dominant roast malt, well hopped character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Superb.

Hoppy browns don’t always work but the balance of this one is nice. Chocolate and molasses are still out front with pine sap and grapefruit building in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a reddish dark brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, a touch of dark fruits, and some oxidation. Flavour is similar, with bready malt, caramel sweetness, and toasted malt. Well-balanced and clean. Not overly intriguing, but it’s solid.

Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen - dark brown pour with beige head. Toasty and roasted malty aroma and taste, medium sweet with some caramel, toffee, light cocoa, nuts, prominent hoppy presence throughout compared to a normal brown, but this works for me.
