Lubiere (12360) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2008
A nice brown ale with a thick moka head. Caramel and chocolate in aroma. In mouth, a good coffee, chocolate and burned toasts, nice and roasted, with light acidic points. For a style I find boring, this is quite interesting. Bieropholie imports.

Benzai (12335) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Dark brown color with a dark red glow visibly coming through, huge, thick, vast off-white head. Smells incredibly fruity, almost sweet, and like blossom. Tastes totally different: a bit roasty, malts, caramel and a lot of nuts in my opinion. A bit thin bodied, but a nice taste; like a brown ale should taste I think. Low to medium carbonation, low body.

thewolf (11875) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 2, 2008
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...
