Not sure why this is called Burned Brown, it states on the bottle "Traditional high fermented beer with burned malts", but I don’t get the roast malts, and the colour is fairly light. That said, this is still a very enjoyable beer, if a little on the sweet side for my taste. Overall, I would certainly have this beer again, but wouldn’t go to any great lengths to get hold of it.

Donkerbruine kleur, kraag is snel pleite. Ruikt donker moutig, koffie. Smaakt vlak en waterig, wat mout. Totaal geen diepte. Wat een tegenvaller!

Roasted malts, a bit simple and uninteresting brew, but it is OK. It could use a small boost.

Une bière de 9,7 % abv, et le feu du diable à gauche de l’étiquette, on est averti... Et pourtant, celle-ci mettra bien du temps à révéler sa force... en finale. Signalons aussi que son nom est très mal choisi !! Couleur acajou très jolie. Apparence transparente. Bulles très fines, mais très disséminées, et pas nombreuses. Mousse beige claire qui tombe très vite, et nappe à peine. On peut quasiment dire que la bière est plate, mais vu le niveau abv, on ne peut lui reprocher. Arômes de prune jeune, cassis, pointe de noisette, whisky en fût de sherry, pointe d’amande. 1ère bouche souple sur du malt plutôt caramel que torréfié... Arrière-bouche courte et une légère épice. 2ème bouche aussi sur des malts caramels. 3ème bouche agréable mais très « mince ». Arrière-bouche plus tranchée sur un alcool en fût, et des myrtilles. Sur la longueur il faut attendre les arrière-bouches pour avoir les « vraies » saveurs. La levure est un peu épicée, un peu boisée, mais pas du niveau requis par ce genre. L’alcool vient lentement au travail, pas marqué à son niveau, sauf en finale. La finale donne toujours l’impression claire, mais le fond passe vite en avant avec l’alcool. CONCLUSION : on ne comprend pas comment cette bière de 9,7 abv a des bouches aussi minces !! Seules les arrière-bouches révèlent les saveurs... On dirait un théâtre de marionnettes !! Mais il y a en arrière et en finale de vraies saveurs. Paradoxe … d’autant plus qu’il n’y a aucune saveur de burned brown !!!

Pours dark brown , rather small white foam Smell is nothing . Roasted malts ? Don’t think so ... Low carbo ( which is good ! ) Taste has some nice things, for sure . Dark malts , some chocolate , some coffee notes ( all from the dark malts ) Rather sweet. Its good, best gaverhopke so far ! Would like it intencer , though ... especialy for this abv , its very , very weak

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A glowing orangey brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. The aroma is lightly sweetish and berryish, with caramel malts and a nutty touch. Some bitterness in the mouth, it’s quite dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Full body. Roasted hints, caramel and nuts in the flavor. Some bitterness and alcohol warmth in the lasting finish. A pretty messy one, but drinkable. 140118

Bottle @ Fynsk Brunsviger er kommet til Ulfborg for at blive , som streger i dine hvide underbukser. Day 2. Pours hazy brown with a bubbly head. Sweet, yeasty and sugary. Quite some alcohol and dried fruit, Vulgær.
