Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and woody aroma. Medium body. Solid balanced toasted flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Koelschtrinker (11056) - 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

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2006
Found, to my utter surprise at Van Erp Dranken in Groningen. Bottle Deep dark brown color, small but steady head. Chocolate, roast and grapes in the aroma. Roastbitter flavor with chocolate. malty, medium bodied. Creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Very likeable and tasty brown ale. Batch nr. 201.

Lubiere (10461) - 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.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2008
Cloudy mahogany with a medium beige head. Sweet aroma with hops, roasted malt and caramel. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Hops kicked at the finish that gave it a bitter finish.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 20, 2008
Botella. Mis gracias al señor de Noruega. Hazy red-brown colour with a medium fairly well lasting head. Dark fruity chocolate roasty aroma. Flavour of softly roasty malt, chocolate and a slight sourness. Minor infection there but still a good brew.
