(on bottle) Brown as in "brown ale", really nice. Sents alot ofamerican sweet hops, right? The mouth is bitter/sweet; perfect balanced. Some caramel too, very nice there and a big chocoltaltly feeling in the finish, with a slight kick of hops. Prime example here.

50 cl bottle. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass.
Deeply brown. Moderate, tan head, which gradually fades. The aroma is pleasantly, darkly malty. Harmonious. The taste is well-balanced, malty (roasted) and pleasant. The finish is a bit weak, though, and the mouthfeel gets a bit watery as the head disappears.

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)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle at the Brickskellar. 25% opaque, brown body with a dark tannish brown head, medium-to-fine bubbles. Semi-sweet caramel and chocolate malts instantly picked up, along with some toffee, tobacco and sweet nuts. Hop level is moderate, maybe a little heavy for a brown ale but very light overall, and there’s the faintest hop scent that almost smells like some dried wood. I don’t detect any roast, but the biscuit character is certainly there. Really committing to the nose can bring up some sweet cedar wood and black cherries, or maybe what I’m thinking of is cherry scented pipe tobacco, along with a sugared, caramel and cherry candy note. Body is average, proper for the style, with a mildly frothy texture on the tongue. A good brown ale, but I find the entire style a bit lacking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose initially imp stoutlike, then tapers off into spice, nuts, & alcohol. Pours sparkling garnet. The nice cascade resolves into a stiff and mostly lasting light brown to beige frothy head that leaves no lace. Pretty balanced start and middle with light acidity, and a nutty bittersweet and slightly roasted finish. The medium body is creamy and soft to lively, with an alcoholic feel to the finish.

Bottle. Aroma of some spice and light roasty malts. Black body with the mahagony hue when held to light with decent tan head. Flavor light roast with a creamy texure noticable. Mild spicey bitter also. Easy on the palate with carbinated belch on the finish.

Aroma is not strong, but malty and yeasty with an undertone of miso (a salty Japanese seaweed-based flavoring). Color is a rich dark chocolate brown with a fairly thick pale beige head. Flavor is malty with just a hint of hops and salt. Texture is smooth and just a little thin, but still pleasant and satisfying.
Congratulations Red Wings!!!
