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.

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.

22oz bottle. no sell buy date, but i think this is over a year old. poured a nice brown with some ruby tones when held up to light, nice tan head which slowly faded to a thin ring. aroma of raosted malt, with the same flavor, very smooth with a hint of bitterness in the finish, a very nice brown ale that seems to have held up quiete well, despite getting burried in my cellar

johnadam2002 (529) - Hainesport, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Poured dark brown with brown head that lasted. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste was much of the same. Very simple and smoothe.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown color with a red tone. Very litlle carbonation; it’s practically flat. As a result: no head at all. Aroma is almost like wine. Rich, malty flavor with some berries. Not bad at all.

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.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - APR 12, 2009
Pours dark, dark brown with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and a hint of liqourice. Tastes like it smells, but the malts dominate more. Has a fruity dimension to it. Mouthfeel could be smoother, but it’s quite enjoyable.
