kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Clear dark amber pour with a plush long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is caramel, raisin and just a touch of molasses. Taste is raisin, biscuit and dark fruit. Finishes with some mild hop bitterness and a slight warming alcohol taste. Pretty good brown ale.

Turtles (1995) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2016
650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear mahogany, dense and fluffy off-white head, good lacing. Biscuity and toasted aroma, caramel, nuts, citrus zest and burnt dark sugar. Medium carbonated, a bit fizzy, full-bodied, sweet and chalky mouthfeel. Sweet caramel taste with citrus zesty bitterness, toasted and chalky, grapefruit, nutty, earthy and resinous. Long pine bitter finish.

LLaurin (310) - Motala, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2016
Reddish brown with firm head. Nose with hints of pine and some hoppy freshness. Taste is sweet with some cacao and bitterness. Lingering almost caramel touch. Leaves with a longlasting finish keeping up the sweet notes and warmth.

SvanteL (294) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2016
En trevlig brown ale med bra rostade toner av choklad och lite kaffe plus lite extra humling, okej men inte så märkvärdig.

Schysst beska, hel del sötma, väl dold ABV, känns krallig utan att vara övermäktig. Ganska bra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KevinReddirt (4) - Midland, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2016 does not count
Another 22 oz. bomber from HEB, poured into a glass stein. I like the color sort of a reddish brown. Ivory foam. It laces nicely as you drink it down. Tasty flavors, slightly piney, nutty maybe. I am enjoying the big flavors these days and this is a step off of that. I prefer a hoppy IPA or a Belgian but this is quite pleasant. A little higher on the alcohol content but you will not notice it. Oh yeah, definitely worth a return trip.

Sweet, nutty and chocolaty. Mostly malty with just enough bitterness to round it off. Medium body and light carbonation.

nice aroma, mainly of malts and some spice. A bit sugary but mainly good. Different style
