3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear chestnut brown with a thick long lasting good lacing beige bubbly head. Aroma is dominated by hops; pine, citrus with a nice malty backbone with light notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, wood/bark. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft+ carbonation. Medium bitter and dry hoppy finish. Hoppy for a brown ale, but very enjoyable.

Very impressive brown ale. Had a sample on tap at Maria’s in Bridgeport, Chicago. Firm, roasty aromas with pine and hop on the back of the tongue. Nice, carbonated mouth feel over a wash of malt and yeast. Great brew.

Lively beer, dark red/brown colour with a large beige head. Beautiful sweet hoppy aroma. The taste is hoppy with some coffee and a lot of bitterness. Perhaps a bit too bitter to taste after the sweet smell, the bitterness almost smothers the other flavours.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours in black to ruby body with tiny head. The smell points to a lot of chocolate with some hints of roastiness. Not too complex. The taste is nice coffee and chocolaty with excessive bitterness in after taste. Little too much which does not contribute to the balance. Body is medium with low carbonation.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a dark brown colour with a broken tan head and broken lace. The aroma is fresh and hoppy, leading to a crisp, medium to strong bitter flavour with lots of liqourice and dark chocolate. It tastes more like an imperial stout than a brown ale to me, but nevertheless, its a very good beer.

Cola-like color is deep brown, almost black with bit red, beige head is big and long and leaves good lacing. Hoppy aroma has citrus, bit pine. Can’t find much more..should not rate while on flu. Flavor has also nice coffee, hoppy flavor also, crisp, fizzy feel, medium body, bitter dry like long finish also. Hoppy and crisp and fresh..will wake you up. Enough flavor that it works with my chorizon hamburger.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Aroma is chocolate and licorice. Flavor is a smooth blend of the two with a carbonated hoppy bite toward the end and finishes with a nice alcohol kick. A very nice flavorful beer.
