TBone (13123) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
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.

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.

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 (632) - 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.

Fratto (2700) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
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.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2011
dark brown with thin and huge white head, likely an old version and this gives evidence for infection. nose of chocolate malt. firm bitterness before chocolate malt with high crystal before some piney hop notes. overall there seems to be an overriding sourness that provides some more evidence for infection. tough to evaluate

Idiosynkrasie (4256) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear red glimmering darkest brown with huge stable frothy lacing tan head. Huge head gives only way to dry and slightly grassy hoppy aroma - no underlying malt notes detectable. Taste is grassy, dry, minimally soapy and sourish on a weak malt basis. So-so.
