Poured a darker than average brown. Had a nice frothy beige head that fell to a ring on the top center of the beer and stayed the duration. Smell is just slightly roasty, not too much coming through here. Taste is nice. Decent medium bodied mouthfeel with a good amount of cocoa coming through as well. A nice solid brown ale. A little bigger tasting than your typical brown.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2009
bottle, pours deep muddy brown with a creamy offwhite head. nose is just about the same as a scottish ale my dad has brewed. same exact nose, so similar it was ina’s first comment as well. must be the same yeast or something. bready nose with faint spices, cloves, damp wood, mostly bread with a faint spicy sweetness. tastes bready very chewy mouthfeel with a good hoppy finish that goes on for ages. lots of berries throughout. my favourite of the nøgne ø line that is at 4.5% thusfar.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2008
This poured brown in color but on the lighter, translucent side with a fluffy head of medium-sized bubbles. The nose is rather sweet and spicy with added scents of chocolate, malt, anise and smoke. In the mouth it is thin and watery lacking concentration of flavor and depth. While nice and easily drinkable, it doesn’t do much for me.

kustie (588) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2015

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Had a couple of days ago. Poured dark brown with a nice cola colored head. Mostly malt aroma with some nuts. Malty flavor, some chocolate and a little toffee. Overall a pretty good brown ale but for the price I paid I’d rather drink a Rogue Hazelnut Brown.

ERB92 (576) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2014
Coffee, nuts, grains, chocolate, licorice, citrus and wood in the aroma. Dark brown with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a really nice brown ale with lots of flavour, especially for the ABV.

bjakk (576) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - MAR 22, 2015
Brownish red, clear with nice yellow head. Hint of malty smoke in the aroma. Sweet, burned sugar malt with burned sugar aftertaste. A nice one.

garza (572) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 5, 2008
A nice aroma of chocolate in this brown dark colour beer. Strong flavor with chocolate and slightly bitterness ending. The palate stays for a long time. Very good.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Pours a dark brown colour with a small creamy tan head. Nose of roasted malts, caramel and freshly cracked walnuts in the background. Initial taste a light to medium bodied rich malty caramel, roasted malts and mollases. Finishing with a nicely balanced hops and chocolate that soothes the palate. Dry chalky finish. Good palate duration with a head retention that was reduced to a ring with some lacing of the glass. Overall very good.
