3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Roasted chestnuts and hazelnut caramel join in this nicely effervescent Brown Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the dark brown.
-Hop earthiness concludes each sip.
-Carbonation is prickly and the mouthfeel is lean.
-Drinkability is quite high.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle from #5. This one pours a deep dark brown body, not possible too see through it and it has a small town medium sized light bubbly and light lacing brown top. On the nose I get tones of chocolate and fruity hops. It has a nice non extreme sweetness also, almost like chocolate ice cream. It’s definitely not too complex, but I have to admit that I like what I smell. It has a really soft carbonation level dangerously near too flat and it’s gliding oily in the mouth. Lots and lots of sweet milky chocolate and chocolate ice cream in the taste. Vanilla tones and a decent amount of sweetness here. Roasted nuts and it’s actually a quite identifiable alcohol present here. Did not expect that from a lightweighter like this. Lots of flavor in a mild brown ale. Ends light chalky. Not bad at all. 28.10.2013
