Pours a soft hazy brown with one finger of frothy tan head. Nose definitely showing some hops, woody and dank notes dominate with some citrus rind and green notes. A touch of biscuity grain and light cacao show as well. Woody hop notes dominate the flavor with some heady hops showing too. Moderately bitter with some peanut hull on the finish.

Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. The head has a good dose of chocolatey malt and a whisper of coffee. Nice citric nose. Palate is smooth and fairly dry. Taste pretty much follows the nose and the head! A nice mixture of orange citric hops and chocolatey malt. Little coffee. Finishes smooth and dry. Tasty.

Murky chestnut with beige head. Piney hops with some simcoe orange. Medium carbonation and body, fairly sweet, orange sherbet, pithy hops, dry slightly chalky finish.

jeremyh70 (890) - Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Poured brown with some ruby highlights, a good off white head and lacing. Aroma is definitely hop forward and somewhat dank and piney with an underlying malt character. Taste is hoppy also with pine, a bit of citrus and fairly big bitterness. Some brown ale roasted malt and chocolate flavors are detectable but are overpowered by the hops. Finishes dry with a bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel was smooth with a medium body and carbonation. Tasted more like a black IPA than a brown ale. Not bad but I’d rather have a traditional brown ale.

finol (2525) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Alu bottle at Taylor & Jones with the Twist. Pours dark Brown with a small tan head. Taste and aroma is dominated by milk chocolate drink, with some orange hops. Creamy but a bit too Sharp carbonation. Usualy Im not a fan of hoppy Brown ales, but this was more of a chocolatey hoppy black IPA or a light hoppy IS.

47,3 cl metal bottle @ PBF
Aroma has sweetish american hops, caramel, some biscuits, roasted notes and coffee in the background. Flavour has coffee, some gooseberry bush, hoppy notes and dark chocolate. A brown ale on the hoppy side – like a mix of brown ale and american strong ale.

Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of hops, some malts and fruits, some wood also. Flavor of malts, some caramel, lots of hops and some alcohol notes. Lots of hops but that’s about it.
