Niksko (336) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark cloudy brown pour with ABSURD amounts of fluffy slightly brown head. Too much head actually, it was almost impossible to pour. I had to wait 20 minutes before the head had subsided enough to drink. There were also some larger particulates in the beer that settled to the bottom. Bad batch?. Slightly sweet aroma, and a little bit solventy. Also something really pleasing on the nose that I couldn’t pick. Taste has lots of coffee on the back end and some biscuit, sweetness and slightly sour on the mid palate. Really nice brew, almost stout like in bitterness and the coffee notes.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2010
500ml bottle. Poured a dark cola brown with a thin beige head. Aroma & taste: chocolate & roasted malts. Overall a good beer: medium body, decent depth, balanced, nice finish. This seemed like a chocolate porter to me.

KM (332) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Nice red brown body. Frothy pale brown head which is mostly diminishing. Sweet chocolate aroma, quite heavy. Bitter, malty flavour. Tiny hints of coffee and chocolate in the finish. A little too much carbonation. Very dry finish. (At home, 29.05.07)

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2010
500ml bottle. Dark brown ale with tan head. Roasted caramel aroma with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt taste, a bit watery and a slightly bitter palate. Session beer of choice.

Dark brown color, light brown head. Nuts and caramel malt nose. Roasted malt taste, hints of chocolate and coffee. A bit thin.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a small sudsy head and good glass retention. Aroma is weak, a little nutty, sweet but not strong. Taste is a bit roasted with some nutiness and piney undertones.

ERB92 (294) - 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.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours dark brown with a nice tan coloured head that leaves chunky lacing. Nose has alot of mild roasted matl, bringing choc and coffee as well as some nuttiness and a touch of vanilla. Palate translates well, dark malt dominating but by no means is this a robust beer. Some slight bitterness on the finish. At 4.5%abv a great winter session beer.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

Decent brown beer. Dark brown color with small off white head. The flavor is a little off. A little metallic. Medium body with some caramel. Just could not get the odd metal taste out of my mind.
