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.

50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark amber brown with a lot of off-white head. Aroma is chocolate and cherries. Flavor is the same with notes of coffee. Highly carbonated. Finishes bitter with cherry nuances. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Pours a very frothy airy tall head which settles down to something a little thicker. Aroma really pleasant and as it tastes thick warming toffee fudge malts with a background of toasted weetabix.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Solid brown pour, cream colored head. Surprisingly floral aroma, some roast malt and nuttiness. Nice malt with caramel, a very slight molasses and more hop character than usual for a brown. A very clean and well balanced brown. Nogne does a good job with this. Outside the box for a brown.

zeke626 (438) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2008
Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a cloudy, dark brown body with off-white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, and bread with a hint of hops. Body seems a little weak and watery. Flavors of burnt malts, coffee, and hops. Aftertaste is clean and slightly watery with coffee and burnt malts.

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’.

Niksko (418) - 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.
