omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Canned at RBESG ’07. Dark brown. Sweet and fruity with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Roasty malt gives me coffee and butter, there’s notes of apples before a carefully bitter finish. Quite good!

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Can from matt7215. Thanks once more. Pours a dark ruby brown with a frothy beige head. Aromas of dark roasted malt and chocolate and citrus. Medium body with creamy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, and barring some dark malt that’s it. Finishes mildly bitter and chocolate. It’s a mild brown ale, and all the chocolate makes it quite tasty. Damn good beer.
