Poured from a refrigerated bottle. Pours a lighter brown with a khaki-ish colored head of foam. The aroma is more sweet and brown sugary than anything. Some malted milk balls come to mind. Taste is more of the sweetness found in the aroma. Decent session beer.

The aroma of chocolate. The taste is light chocolate, cold coffee and gentle. Good bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Good beer indeed. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on Friday night before a recording weekend. Not sure if I got a bunk bottle of this, because it is very carbonated. Appearance is a coffee brown with a huge frothy off white head, carbonated to the point where I had to pour four times into one glass. Aroma of caramel, malt, carbonation, not too much else. Taste is malty with a light yeast backing and chocolate/caramel notes. It’s just OK, wondering if the bottle I purchased was shaken at any point.

12 oz bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Deep almost opaque brown. Heavy roasted malt aroma, some bright citrus hops. Medium body, sweet, then a resin infused roasted coffee flavour. Long bitter finish.

Excalibur123 (231) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 29, 2015
Color marrón oscuro con media corona de espuma beige y buena retención, aromas marcados a malta tostada, chocolate, frutos negros y un poco de regaliz; en boca entrada media y maltosa con ligero amargor, pos gusto maltoso y un tanto dulce; perfecto equilibrio entre el lúpulo y la malta, no destaca ni el amargor ni las notas dulces; cuerpo y carbónico medios en una muy buena y balanceada brown ale.

Well rounded flavors of cocoa, toast, dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and toffee. Hints of lightly roasted coffee, apples and cinnamon. Malty with an herbal aftertaste.

Pedrens (66) - SPAIN - JAN 21, 2015
Color marron muy oscuro, bastante limpio. Espuma beige claro poco potente pero q se mantiene. Aroma bastante suave a malta tostada, caramelo, toffe...y algo lupulado. En boca es fina, no tiene demasiado cuerpo, amargor bajo, y dulzura baja tambien, presenta cierto toque acido. El final es muy sutil, malteado y ese toque acido se mantiene en cierta forma. No esta mal pero esperaba algo mas, no me convence.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought cocoa, roast, nuts, some toffee, hints of grass and herbal notes, slight red fruit. Taste was cocoa, slight red fruit into bigger nuts, some earth, dark caramel, some roast, hints of toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

Really just not my style of brown ale. Very smokey and toasty quite possibly? Not too sweet at all. Good looking but this looker isn’t everything once you get inside.
