3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on September 10. Pours a deep brown and fizzy liquid with a big beige head. Smells sweet of dark bread but there’s also a hoppy freshness. Taste is sweet and fullbodied with a noticable bitterness. There is also a warm taste of alcohol to it. ----- Had this with some Chèvre and Gorgonzola and this really mixed well with the different cheeses. Can very much recommend serving this beer with tasty cheese.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours dark brown with a large, light brown head. Sweet aroma of alcohol, toffee, caramel and chocolate, a bit nutty. Flavour is dominated by alcohol, some citrus and dark malts. Medium body/bitternes. I had higher hopes for this one. “Vaskad”...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with a large off-white head. The smell is rich with the focus on coffee and chocolate. The taste is equally rich with coffee, chokolate, plumps in brandy, light acidity, wood and more that I can’t out my finger on. Altogether a very nice brown ale

Sep 11. No particular head but nice dark coloured. Has a fresh smell. Taste is well balanced with roasted coffebeans as ground it makes an abrupt finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 500ml. A clear light brown colour with a high, beige-brown head. An aroma of malt, caramel and alcohol. Some roasted and burned notes. A medium sweet and medium bitter taste. A full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a long finish. I like this brown ale a lot.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On keg at Bacchus, Newcastle. Pours a cloudy, dark brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of dried fruits, raisins, plums, caramel, chocolate and bready yeast. Big hoppy flavour upfront, fruity with notes of passion fruit, pineapple and mango. Backbone of chocolate and dark malts. Foamy mouth-feel with a little CO2 prickle. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 The aroma is nutty, chocolatey, earthy. The appearance is deep brown, off-white head. The flavor is brown sugar, nuts, big chocolate. Medium in body. The finish is sweet, brown sugar, leading to enduring piney hops. Very solid Brown Ale. Not worth the $14/32 oz growler I paid for this, but solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown color with a small well retained head and some lace. The aroma is nutty with some earthy and chocolaty notes some mild pear and alcohol show through as well. The flavor is really fairly bitter but also nutty with some woodiness and a good dosage of earthy hops. The beer is decidedly not sweet but allows some room for a balance of sweet nuttiness. Pretty tasty stuff.
