Rerate
Draught at the brewery during a tasting and tour, on December 9, 2013.
Clear dark brown color, tan head. Sweet, phenolic, spicy, yeasty scent. Spicy, malty, grainy, phenolic taste. Dry, spicy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Fermentation/yeast character too evident, you loose some of the balance of the ingredients with all the phenoles.
6/4/6/3/12=3.1

Svesse (6066) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2007
(Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse No 68, Stockholm) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy off-white head. Fruity nose with dark fruit, yeast, hints of smoke and lots of earthy hops. Fruity taste with dark fruit, caramel, yeast and lots of earthy hops in the finish. More tasty and bitter than any other brown ale I’ve tried. Probably not true to the style, but actually better. Rather magnificent, actually.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2006
(bottle, shared by DerDoppelbock) Chestnut brown colour with a short off-white frothy layer. Moderately sweet grainy and spicy floral and herbal hop aroma, also slightly vinous with fruity notes. Bitter, slightly sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dark malty taste with a well-balanced fruitiness; dry and lasting bitter hoppy finish (05.10.06).

JorisPPattyn (7886) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2006 Coca-cola colour with coca-cola head, receding but stabling itself at 1/2 cm. Very hoppy nose, absolutely unsettling for a "brown ale". Dry hops, hopbails. Strange mix of sweet, lightly bitter hopstaste, with a short-lived metallic edge, and a difficult to discern touch of sourness. On top of that, I find something salty too, apart from obvious bread flavours. It’s sounds perfect balance, but it isn’t at all! Medium bodied. Fresh hoppiness is counteracted by the bready flavours and doughy MF. It’s pleasing in many ways, yet its unbalanced, lopsided style doesn’t do it any favours.
Big thanks to B&A brothers!

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
Sampled from draught at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2005.
Dark amber colored, foamy light tan head. Malt and spice aroma, hints of brown sugar and fruity notes. Roasted and spicy in the flavor, bit of liquorice and a dry dusty end. Not very balanced.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2005
On draught at The Rover, Göteborg.. Brown-ish colour. Weird nose - nothing that would tell this is a brown ale. Nynäs yeast profile though. Fruity, soda-like with lots of hops. Long flavour. And...swimming pool-tone that´s so familiar in Nynäs brews.

Draught, at The Rover. Brown with beige head, mostly lasting, excellent lacings. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy (burnt, roasted, caramel, flowers). Flavor moderate sweet and bitter, mean duration. Light to medium body, watery, flat carbonated.
