Bottle, bought @ Barley Wine, Cph.
Pours a deep, lightly muddy red-brown. A good, medium, creamy off-white head on top. Good duration. Nice aroma. Lots of toffee, caramel, chocolate and a lightly roasted note. A touch of hops as well. Lively mouthfeel, a bit thin perhaps. Lovely flavour with good sweetness and a heavy dose of fruity hops. Chocolate dominates between the hops and the roasted malts. Seriously nice Brown...

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Aroma of medium dark malts. Clear mahogany color with a light beige head. Body is a bit thin, flavor is lightly sweet brown malt. There is some roasted, but not burnt, malt character. Almost creamy in a way. Reasonably moderate carbonation. After a time some stout aspects, maybe chocolate, probably coffee, show up. In fact the finish is more like a mild stout than a brown. Very, very nice ale.
