3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) This is a fine example of the completely disrespectful way American brewers approach traditions. From the name you would expect this to be a hybrid between a Brown Ale and an IPA, but the brewery claims it to be a hybrid between a Scotch Ale, a American Pale Ale and an IPA. But a curious hybrid it is. Very dark mahogany, brownish head, very malty (burned malt). The 50 IBU are pretty well hidden underneath the sweetness of the malt - to some extent. Quite an extreme brew.

Brown, big maltiness, somewhat sweet and very round. Defies any attempt of classification. Very interesting brewery.

Dark brown clear beer. Smooth and rich. Creamy malt. Just a light touch of hop in the smooth finish. A plain beer but flavoursome and well executed.

A bottle from the same batch as my original tasting. So nearly 4 years old. Semi sweet malts - nice mellow chocolate and coffee. Whisper of orange. A little cream. Can’t detect any oxidisation. Pretty well aged and rounded off. Still very enjoyable.
