Bottle. Very dark cola color, near black with a medium thin beige head. Aroma of smoke, peat and coffee. Flavors are roasted malt, licorice and smoke. Some hops in finish. Slick feel. Not far from a stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Irma, Copenhagen. An appealing glowing dark brown in colour, with a with thin dissipating tan head. Dark fruity and nutty nuances are most prominent, has some wood, grass in there as well, has some underplayed hop character but is still there, and overall i think it works pretty well. Nice.

Bottle. Dark brown, small and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some roasted malt - faint burnt malt, faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some roasted malt toffee, some bread and faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and roasted malt with some bread, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. OK brown ale - though whole beer style is not so challenging.
