tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle: Fridge dweller. Dark for a brown. Almost opaque mahogany, ruby clarity when held to the light. Foamy beige-gray head leaves a sheet of lace behind. Aroma contains some toasty caramel malt, mild nuts, a touch of vanilla, & a little bit of mustiness. Hint of cocoa powder, too, maybe. Taste of earthy hops, dry must, metallic CaraMunich malts, toasted toffee, & a tiny hint of anise in the finish. Somewhat yeasty, too. It’s not bad, but many better shelf brown ales exist. A simply "okay" example of the style.

Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark mahogany color, hazy, with compact head. Caramel aroma, a bit fruity, candyish, already cloying; breadish and yeasty. Caramel flavor, dull, with moderate sweetness, hint of chocolate, ordinary bitterness, light sweetness; boring; a bit nutty in the end.
Bah.

Pours a clear dark garnet with a full light tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and spices. Taste is sweet roasted malt, caramel, raisins, plums and a bit of bitter chocolate and coffee. Like a cross between a brown and a stout. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
