VDuquerroux (219) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A dark brown beer with brown orange hues on the top. Medium white head. Poor persistence. Smoked aroma, caramel, herbs, spices (liquorice, anise). Medium refreshing bitter, medium sugary sweet. Medium body, oily texture. Soft carbonation. Warming finish. Overall, a pleasant bittersweet smoked-spicy brown ale.

hawthorne00 (2363) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Brown with a pale beige head that fades to a coat then lasts OK. Aroma of dough, carob, intriguing spices - mace, anise and what is presumably lady’s mantle (according to the bottle). Less full-bodied than the aroma suggests, sweet, a bit nutty, carob, dries out towards an end that has little bitterness. Aniseed becomes quite prominent after a while. Interesting beer, would go a treat with terrine.

Davros (1866) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2013
Pours dark brown with a fading off-white head. Nose shows toasty malt, some sweet brown sugar, bready malt and nutty character. Enticing. Similar flavours, nutty and bready malt with the Belgian dubbel-like brown sugar note in there too. Carbonation seems a little high. Would be a really good brown ale if not for the brown sugar character.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of jaghana. Deep murky brown appearance with a small bubbly beige head. Rich malty nose where cork, raisins, caramel, wood and candied fruit show up. Sweet. Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Good malt profile. Pleasant bitterness. Some lacework. Quite a lot of marmite on the swallow, leading to a pleasant dry finish which is reminiscent of fennel and caramel. Nicely brewed and without any major flaws but I didin’t enjoy the marmite component. Thanks a lot jaghana!
