3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, Dark carmel with a small cream colored head. Sweet, malty coffee aroma. Starts a smile, clear, bright coffee and light chocolate flavor and quickly brings in a nice bitter. A little thin but this also makes it very easy drinking, and in a way lets the flavor really come through. Taste totally disappears in a few seconds meaning another lift.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown with very little head. Very faint smoky nuttiness on the nose. The flavor is quite powerful and makes up for the weak nose. Nice roasted flavors as well as some nuttiness and a hint of malty sweetness. the finish is unbelievably dry for your standard brown ale, but enjoyable. Paired this up with some choclate covered almonds, and it was fantastic.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Bottle @ home. From the brewery. While being a gusher this is still a really nice brown ale with a delicate but quite intense milk chocolate aroma and taste. Flavors also include nuts, bread, coffee, fruits. Quite alot of coffee in the aroma too. Mouth feel is dry, with a bit of brown ale soapiness, slightly acidic by roasted malts. Balanced bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
