tdtm82 (838) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle share. Aroma is pistachio nuts, caramel, soy source. Taste is pistachios, clove, coriander, licorish, marzipan and caramel. Would go very well in the working mens’ clubs in the north of England. To style this is good but I don’t like brown ales much.

leghorn99 (63) - Livorno, ITALY - FEB 27, 2015
Si presenta di colore marrone scuro; la schiuma è buona, di grana media, color nocciola e abbastanza persistente. Aroma di malto tostato, caramello, uvetta, caffè. Al palato, ritroviamo la tostatura del malto, cioccolato, caffè, caramello, presenza di frutta secca (noci, nocciole); prevalentemente dolce, ma nel finale si avverte la presenza del luppolo, che dona un leggero amaro per un buon equilibrio. Il corpo è medio-pieno, vivace la carbonazione, finale asciutto.

JDBaker11058 (1421) - Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Appearance: medium amber brown, short light tan head, creamy but quickly fading. Aroma: brown and candi sugars, belgian yeast, some caramel and chocolate, bit of unripe banana. Taste: malty and sweet, with raisin, fig, a bit of caramel and chocolate, a bit of leather, and strong yeasty character. Finish: lingering yeasty notes, with lasting leather, tobacco, and candi sugar. Notes: A nice enough brown ale. Pretty prominent Belgian characteristics, and well-balanced. Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear reddish beer with a small ring of off white head on top. Aroma of some Brett (?), grapes, chocolate and some roasted coffee. Flavor is lightly sour, even some peppery burn in the back. Thin mouthfeel, good drinkability and good stuff.
