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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 40 cl, BBE 06/12/2013. Pours dark brown in color with thin
bubbly tan head. Dry wooden aroma, some leathery notes as well. Dry
mouthfeel. Quite hoppy in taste with some slightly burnt wood and
notes of bitter chocolate. A bit carbonated and lacking the
nuttyness that usually is to be found in brown ales, but otherwise
this was a pleasant surprise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma of dark bread, berries, some dark fruits and roastiness, hint of glue. Basicly, the aroma is interesting but still too messy. Taste of bread and dark fruits, surprisingly fresh, balanced sweetness. Medium bodied, balanced carbonation, nice to drink. The controversial beer, that is not boring at all, the Brown Ale with dark fruits and berries.
