3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a cloudy, dark brown body with off-white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, and bread with a hint of hops. Body seems a little weak and watery. Flavors of burnt malts, coffee, and hops. Aftertaste is clean and slightly watery with coffee and burnt malts.

500 ml bottle. In general a well-balanced beer, but I really miss some kind of x-factor. It suffers from the lack of ’body roundness’.

RateBeer rating: 81
Calories: estimated at 300 C
Volume: 16.9 fl oz.
Glass: dimpled mug
Purchased at: Canals in Burlington (thanks, Mike!)
Consumed at: home
First Impression: Typical brown ale, which is surprising, considering Nogne 0 and Canal’s in Burlington. Aroma is faint and a bit chocolate. Visuals are clear carbonated and brown with a very persistent head but no lace. Taste is simple, average brown ale - good hop depth, simple taste signatures. Palate is a medium finish and a hoppy bite. Second Impression - about average for a brown ale, and surprisingly, better examples exist outside of Nogne 0’s offering here.
Aroma: 7 out of 10
Visuals: 4 out of 5
Taste: 7 out of 10
Palate: 3 out of 5
Overall: 15 out of 20

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, dark, reddish brown with a dense, off white head. Aroma has lots of toasted malts, caramel malts, wheat-like fruits, plums, figs. Overall a very nice malt profile so far. Some almost belgian style yeast or esters here as well. Taste has a slightly higher roasted bitterness, toffee, caramel malts and fruits: Banana, dried plums, dried figs and raisins. Body is pretty watery, which doesn’t suit the taste very well in my opinion. Medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mostly sweet aroma, chocolate, maybe also a hint of something sour. Taste is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter, which makes for a modest bitter-sweet finish. Body is quite thin. A dark brown or red coloured brew with a small off-white head. (Bottle)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a cola brown, small tan head. Aroma is roasty, kinda hard to describe. Flavor is again roasty, malty, very slight touch of hops. Very different palate on this beer, very smooth, non offensive, leaves no aftertaste at all. Will buy this one again.

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

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

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
