I liked this Brown Ale, but for the price of $7.99 per bottle, I can do better right here in the US. It was nice and smooth but it lacked character. Id like more maltiness.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2009
A solid brown ale. Nice nutty aroma and start, with a little bit of hops bitterness rising just to the edge of perceptibility on the finish. Smooth. Drinkable. Would make a great session beer if it weren’t so damned expensive.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2012
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a deep ruby brown, small beige head. Aroma is malty, nutty, touch of coffee. Taste is similar, fairly bitter, nice nuttiness, less coffee than in the aroma. Medium body, crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Nice.

Black color, medium beige head. Sweet aroma of dark chocolate,coffee, yeast and malt, Mostly dry taste with subtle bitterness in finish, has notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark berries and hops. Light body and average carbonation. Nice dark beer for easy drinking.

The aroma was chocolate and a light presence of fruit mixed with roast and a nice caramel sweetness. Nutty and bready with a growing roast presence as it warmed. The beer poured into the glass crystal clear brown with an amber highlight and a tannish moderate head which lasted well enough to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely malty with a bit of roast and caramel. Chocolate led the charge and a slight fruity character was pleasant and well done. The bittering seemed to mostly come from the grains, but was not overbearing. The flavor was bready and nutty. The finish was dry with lasting impressions of light roast and chocolate into the aftertaste. The body was just below medium and the carbonation was a bit low. A nice brown ale, but nothing too special to earn the price of admission. 16.9 ounce bottle.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2010
500ml bottle. Poured a dark cola brown with a thin beige head. Aroma & taste: chocolate & roasted malts. Overall a good beer: medium body, decent depth, balanced, nice finish. This seemed like a chocolate porter to me.

Unde (329) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Really dark brown ale with durable head and lacing. Aroma is really good, there is lots of dark chocolate, cocoa beans, some herbs and caramel. Taste has roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and bitter herbs at the end. Excellent after taste, which really invites you to take another sip. But sadly this has quite thin body, with just a little higher ABV this would be awesome.

KM (327) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Nice red brown body. Frothy pale brown head which is mostly diminishing. Sweet chocolate aroma, quite heavy. Bitter, malty flavour. Tiny hints of coffee and chocolate in the finish. A little too much carbonation. Very dry finish. (At home, 29.05.07)

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2010
500ml bottle. Dark brown ale with tan head. Roasted caramel aroma with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt taste, a bit watery and a slightly bitter palate. Session beer of choice.

Niksko (306) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark cloudy brown pour with ABSURD amounts of fluffy slightly brown head. Too much head actually, it was almost impossible to pour. I had to wait 20 minutes before the head had subsided enough to drink. There were also some larger particulates in the beer that settled to the bottom. Bad batch?. Slightly sweet aroma, and a little bit solventy. Also something really pleasing on the nose that I couldn’t pick. Taste has lots of coffee on the back end and some biscuit, sweetness and slightly sour on the mid palate. Really nice brew, almost stout like in bitterness and the coffee notes.
