This dark, rich ale is based on the combination of eight different malts and cereals. This yields a complex malt profile with some sweetness, balanced by American hops, which also provides the ale with a citrussy aroma. Can be enjoyed on a cold day by itself or with grilled meat and hearty stews. Ølfabrikken Brown Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

Bottle (swingtop)@home. Pours clear brown, with small off white head. Little lacings. Aroma of caramel and toffee, and a little note of choclate as well. Taste is lots of malt, medium bitternss, and a little sourness as well, mabye becauce it is a vintage. Body is medium with a slightly creamy texture. Still some carbonation. Old but still a nice beer.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
A clear orange-amber body with a well lasting thick white head. Nose has sweet notes of roasted caramel, syrup and nuts. Taste is very mildly sweet with a hefty bitterness that lingers on the palate. Lively carbonation and easy drinking mouthfeel. Quite nice and complex, perfect for fall evenings or paired with heavier foods.

Can @ home Appearance: pours clear red-brown with ok white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: barley, light caramel, some metallic and herbal notes. palette: light malty aroma, average carbonation, medium body, average malt sweetness, balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and a watery texture.

Dark red-brown ale, clear. Smooth chocolatey malt leads very nicely to a mildly hoppy finish. Not overdone at all. Well joined up tasty beer. Who needs Jackie Brown?
