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...

Lubiere (10851) - 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.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark brown with a large, frothy beige head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, dates and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, light esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
