"a pretty nice flavorful nutty carmel brown ale. a little on the sweet side, but some bitterness present too. high carbonation, almost too much, but this ends up a good beer for the style."

Vestergaard (431) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, dark, reddish brown with a dense, off white head. Aroma has lots of toasted malts, caramel malts, wheat-like fruits, plums, figs. Overall a very nice malt profile so far. Some almost belgian style yeast or esters here as well. Taste has a slightly higher roasted bitterness, toffee, caramel malts and fruits: Banana, dried plums, dried figs and raisins. Body is pretty watery, which doesn’t suit the taste very well in my opinion. Medium carbonation.
