@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-9-20: något diskret doft men en mycket trevlig smak och fin fyllighet. Fina lite heta kolatoner, toffee och med en liten fruktig underton.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light brown, looking dark brown in the glass. A nice and creamy looking tanned head. Heavy malty on the nose with almonds and nuts. Well balanced taste, I get hints of chocolate, malty caramel and nuts. Pretty nice and well rounded. Mouthfeel is actually quite crisp and the co2 is medium to high.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gathers a 1-finger mocha head above a tar/mahogany body.
Aroma of raisins, roasted malt, liquorice, toast. Hint of nuts. In keeping with the British interpretation of Brown-Ales. Unfortunately reminds me of the stale beer of pubs of yesteryear. Taste is malt, bread, brown sugar. Belgian influence perhaps. Creamy. Hop-bitters in the finish. No flavor just bitterness and some roasted coffee (yuk to the latter).

It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dry finish. Nuts, roast and caramel tastes. Nice balance of a malty beer with bittering hops.

Roasted caramelly chocolatey aroma. Deep clear red colour. Chocolate and roasted malt in the taste as welll, good balance between malt and hops with focus on the malt, a bit sweet reminiscent of unmahsed malt. Medium body, lively carbonation. Nice brown ale, with lots of malty goodness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle served in snifter glasses and shared over some cuban food. What a beer! Tastes like slightly sour and tangy fruit cake, sweet and thoroughly aromatic with dried fruits. Murky brown appearance, low foam. Palate is more carbonated than I had expected. Medium bodied. Excellent beer. Another winner from Pretty Things. These guys are batting 1.000 with me so far.
