On tap at The Grill Next Door. Dark brown pour into a pint glass. Dark brown with thin brown head. Light coffee notes. Toasty malt and coffee flavor with a bit of sweetness. True to style, a decent brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smroush (114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Aromas heavily dominated by the malts; caramel and bread. Hops are pretty subdued, just a general bitterness. Color is a dark brown with a bit of redness; very sparse head. Taste is fairly sweet, with a modest bitter undertone. Medium body, texture is towards the creamy and slick side. The finish is moderate in length and sweet, bready and just a bit bitter. Overall I think this beer is lacking some balance; plenty of malt but not much hops. The carbonation is also on the light side, which results in a sweetness without much to balance it.

StueyD (1378) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
A dark cola brown coloured beer with a creamy coloured head. A mild roasted malt aroma, chocolate and coffee, nutty and a touch of red fruit. Medium dry mouthfeel. A bitter sweet taste, the malty elements come through from the aroma, coffee, chocolate and nut, then a zesty fruitiness of cherry and even raspberry that lifts the sweeter flavours. The finish is equally well balanced.

Don’t specifically remember this but had on tap. Remember that I was thinking it was a good Brown the way it was meant to be made. Nutty but not over so.

Wow what happened there? I hope my bottle is bad. Rancid malts over the base butty malty body. Some pine and wood, but not aged. Taste is even more affected. Yuck! Considering how many ratings this already has I an safely add mine, in the hope that quality is either already high usually or gets improved. My bottle was bad, could not drink more than 2 sips. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 29, 2015
Pleasant surprise. Rich maltiness, some roastiness, caramel, smooth choco all the way, some light fruity hop kick in finish. Moderate sweet with light bitterness and bittersweet finish. Simple, but awesome brown ale

WillemsUrenkel (831) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Deep brown in the glass, tanned small head. Roasted malt and chocolate on the nose. Starts with strong dark chocolate, a little bit too much in my opinion, but not bitter. Then additional dark berriefruits. Malty and light alcoholic in the background. Smooth. Nice stuff.

Elegante, algo cálida, con una puntita de licor de avellana y un balance hacia la malta. Sabrosa sin ser explosiva, mas untuosa que densa, con el perfil de Malta del estilo, un punto de frutos secos caramelizados y bizcocho. Amargor moderado.

Sehr dunkel orangebraune Farbe, fingerbreite beige Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Kaffee und Toffee, leicht hopfig. Geschmack nussig, leicht röstmalzig, Vanille, wenig Kaffee.

Dark brown with medium beige head. Starting with sour note surrounded by mild sweetness taste comes to strongly remaining bitterness with roasted malt and coffee notes. Very soft for drinking.
