fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Clean dark amber color. Very nice aroma, with some malt, roasted malt and hop. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with roasted malt, malt and caramel, plus a touch of rye. Pretty good among the Brown Ales. Ends too dry and somehow minty.

rlgk (18187) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2005
Hazy amber color with some of the hugest yeastparticles I ever have seen in a beer. Coffee and chocolate aroma, some what salty and fruity. Malty flavor with some vanilla, fruity notes, a bit salty biut still mild. Maybe a little thin.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süffiger und herber Malzantrunk. Das Malz wird kräftiger, die Herbe wandelt sich in Bitterkeit. Das Hauptaroma verschiebt sich vom Malz zur trockenen Bitterkeit. Wenig fruchtig. Zum Ende trocken malzig, die Bitterkeit ist fast schon etwas säuerlich. Bekömmlich! 9/9/8/9/11/8

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Dark brown with thin beige head. Choc malt and hop. I quite like it. Fairly simple choc malt/hoppy beer. Hop finish is tasty. Drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 Bottle. Brown-red beer with dense, large, beige head. The yeast sediments gives it a hazy look, but it is no problem to pour it without the yeast if you like. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee/mocca and some floral notes. The taste has roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a fruity hoppiness. The finish is as expected quite dry, and the bitterness stays for a while. My least favoured beer from Nøgne Ø, but a nice beer anyway. Goes well with walnuts and pickled silver-onions.(050912) (Rerated 060725)

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Dark nut brown, small creamy off-white head. Smokey, roasted, chocolaty nose. Roasted, a bit watery, chocolaty, not very brown ale -like, more like some of the Nögne Ö’s stouts.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
Reddish-brown colour. Very nutty aroma. Flavour is nutty, toasty, with some minerals. Relatively full body for the style.
