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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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’.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
