Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Maria. Clear, orangey brown with a beige head. Weird and very unpleasant sewage aroma. Rather thin-bodied with burned, malty accents. Some bitterness. Flawed and unpleasant. 290308

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
Clear brown with beige head. Sweet fruity aroma with spices, gutter and roasted malt. Flavor goes the same way.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 5, 2008
The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. Thank you Yngwie for this one! Nice, dark copper with a nice head. The aroma has notes of malt and spices, a bit peculiar and difficult to describe. The flavour has sweetness, notes of roasted malt, caramel, light citrus - and IMO, it’s not very harmonic.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2008
Hazy red brown beer with a lasting tan head. Bready malt, with a touch of roast, coming together in a rather odd way. Malty sweet flavour with tart and astringent notes.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Clear dark brown colour. Sweet caramel malty aroma. Rather thin mouthfeel. Well toasted bit spiced malty and chocolate flavour. Bitterish toasty finish with slight chocolate.

Bottle @ thewolf tasting.
[thank you Yngwie/Gunnfryd]
Pours a nice reddish brown - a fine creamy beige head on top. Rather quickly becomes a thin film. Aroma is sweet, light roasted caramel, some fruity plums and raisins. Light mouthfeel. Flavour is quite dry, some chocolate and a bit of dried fruits. Light spiciness as well. Really a nice Brown Ale.
