LordDrachen (109) - reggio emilia, - MAY 23, 2011
Really drinkable for a brown ale. Brown colored and cappuccino-like head (average). Very coffee, milky aroma with nuts, roasted and some chocolate too. Taste is quite light, with not so long mouthfeel. Light bitterness and milky sweetness. More drinkable as i expect. Good one.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - APR 5, 2014
ottima brown ale, con un tocco affumicato, note di malti tostati, leggera nocciola, cioccolata e uno sfondo dolce intrecciato da un tocco amaro finale che testimonia una discreta incursione di luppolo. Davvero buona!

Aikaista mukaansatempaava tunnelma. Hyvä ja hento savunmaku. Tummaa tavaraa. Sikaria ehken.

Bamsen78 (2411) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Absolutely uncontrollable gusher. Pours cloudy coffee brown with stable, rocky light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with notes of fruit, nuts and coffee. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of malt and coffee, and hints of fruit. Dry and roasty aftertaste. A nice Brown Ale.

Backlog. While i appriciate brewerys picking up the style and doing new things with it, this wasn’t one of my favourites.
