Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011
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)

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.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2008
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.

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’.

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.

Vestergaard (362) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
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.

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.

Unde (358) - 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.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2007
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.
