Hamirubi (405) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2015
25cl bottle, served in the lovely Pelforth goblet in Ax-les-Thermes, France (15 & 16 V 2015, at bars "Le Grand Café" and "Le Comptoir des Negociants"). Nice vanilla flavoured dark double with beige, even brown rich foam on top. This medium bodied double has a lovely malty bitter balance, with sweet caramel notes.

MarkoNm (2000) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours a clear dark amber/light brown color, topped with a small beige colored head. Quite mild aroma, some notes of roasty malt and caramel can be picked up. Taste is mild, sweet and malty with some caramel in there. Not bad, easily drinkable and very gentle.

Moolesen (378) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Bottle 25cl. Brown/red with a beige head. Nice foam. Light spice in the nose, for the rest almost no aroma. Flavour goes in direction of dried fruit, but not as complex as other strong beers. Not bad at all. Quite short finish.

Cola red colour and appearance- no head of any sort. Little carbonation - fairly smooth palate. No great shakes - disappointed as liked last year.

KeefOz (1265) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2015
Tasted 16/3/15. BB 08/2015. Poured a clear dark amber with a few light tan bubbles forming a collar. Laced poorly. Carbonation very low and fine. Aroma with subtle toffee and brown sugar; no obvious hops. Taste malty, very sweet caramel, no obvious hops bitterness; taste similar to aroma but not as strong. Light body. Smooth with lingering sweetness. Quite OK.

Ulysse (389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2015
Weak aroma of sugar candy or molasses. Sweet brown beer with a very watery finish. Too simple.

Kolor: ciemny rubin-czerwony. Piana: mała, syczaca, niezachęcająca. Aromat: słodowy, ciemne owoce, komfitura. Smak: jest dość słodko, moze nawet muląco. Pełne, dość wysoko wysycone. Smak nie jest intensywny, nudny, mozna sie doszukac ciemnych owocow i tyle... Średnio udane piwo w nieciekawym stylu.

Beertobealive (390) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a thick dark beige head with candy and moderate malt aromas. Dark copper colored body with ruby hints. Light in taste with medium palate. Ok if your holidays brings you in a village south of Loire river and you seek an amber:brown beer. Otherwise there should be better options available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh. It’s different for sure than most macro beers I usually encounter (the brown ale not being common in the Nordic-Baltic region) but nothing to be excited about. Slightly unpleasant hoppy aroma, a fair amount of almost sedimentary malt that battles with--instead of being nicely blended with--a hop presence.
