Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark ruby red colour, clear and pretty indeed. Very small head and almost no carbonation - almost English cask appearance. Huge sediment though. A slight indefinable and not completely pleasant nose - roasted somehow. Very malty flavours, roasted malt - light sweetish, soft and pleasant mouthfeel. An incredibly flavourful beer for it’s rather small body. 110705

TBone (12822) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled
Dark nut brown, small creamy off-white head. Smokey, roasted, chocolaty nose. Roasted, a bit watery, chocolaty, not very brown ale -like, more like some of the Nögne Ö’s stouts.

Dedollewaitor (14045) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2008
50cl bottle: Thanks to Yngwar. Pours dark brown with a off white bubbly head. Nose & taste is sweet & dusty of nuts & caramel. A bit thin palate. Ok!

tlind2 (1140) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Deep brown color, tan head. Chocolaty aroma with some roasted malt. The chocolate also dominates the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Not bad, but somehow I expected more complexity.

That1Guy (1942) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. It’s aight. Very roasty flavor is pleasant, but it’s really strangely carbonated so it’s not as smooth as it could be. Taste is very nice though and is definitely the bright spot of this brew.

berlinoise2go (621) - NORWAY - MAR 6, 2010
Bottle, 50cl, from ICA, Oslo. Batch 431 (BB 10.6.2011). Deep reddish brown colour, clear (but yeast sediments when bottle is near empty) . Two-inch light beige head reducing to a fine film. Dry, roasted malt aroma with a bit over-the-top spiciness (cloves, nutmeg, coffee). Light/medium body, watery. Fruity-bitter aftertaste.

Botle from Cavie. Medium brown pour with a white head. Aroma is lots of toffee, sweet, candy, a little chocolate. Taste is chocolate, earthy coffee, a little caramel, and sweet nuts.
