3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. (SOPP2007, Helsinki)
Dark Brown, almost black. Light creamy head. Odd aroma - lager malt maybe, slightly chemical. As it warms the roasted malt comes through. Tastes quite malty and has a nice sticky dense bitterness. Not sour enough to be a real brown ale, IMHO. A bit watery. Has a strange finihs - like freshly-sharpenned pencils - wood and graphite!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...
