Misty deep nut brown body with aa small light brown head. Malty, toasted bread and pine fill the nostrils. Pleasant bittersweet flavors with coffee notes and a nice piney, nutty finish. Medium bodied. Smooth. This is pretty good stuff.

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

Dark brown hazy, creamy tanned head. Smells lightly of roast, then nuts, hints of dried fruits and malts. Light sweet, quite fruity of yeast and malts. Moderate bitter finish. A very playful brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Meny Oslo City, shared with other ratebeerians at Cunningham’s place. Opaque dark brown pour supported by a fair, fawn-coloured head. Brown candied sweet malts on the nose. More prominent taste profile with mid-sweet roasted brown malts, hints of nuts and caramel. Dusty hops to the ending. Medium to thin bodied. A tad too sweet, otherwise an okay version of the style.
