Flaske. Virkelig imponerende skum på en brun øl. Dejlig frisk duft umiddelbart men bagved kan de brændte lidt tungere dufte godt anes. Dejlig smag med et godt bid. Superlækker brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Nice dark amber color; big head. The aroma is not too strong, some malt and hop, light aroma of coffee grounds. Good body, good malt and caramel flavor, with some bitter toffee too, and quite high bitterness. Very well done Brown Ale, the hop is also a bit fruity and resiny (but covered by the caramel).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice fluffy tan head dragging laces on a clear deep amber beer. Intense and fresh notes of hops. Almost herbal. Flavor is slightly metallic with a light lactic thing playing on the tongue before going into a tongue twisting bitterness ending in a long dry finish. The carbonation is nicely mellow and the body is a bit thin without being watery. This is not a bad beer - it is just lacking many of the trademarks of a brown ale. If I were guessing I would call it an India Pale Ale.
