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 (2249) - 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.
