Smooth, nutty, chocolately (nutella?), with a dark chocolately body and shallow beige head. Vague suggestion of caramel, lighter body than I expected but easy to drink in a pleasant way.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2005
On draught at Barleys in Knoxville, Feb 2005. Thick looking, transluscent brown body, but a very rapidly disappearing beige head. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, pac-men and honey. Flavor has a big dose of chocolate and hazelnut up front. While I canít say the hazelnut is wonderfully authentic (Iíd rather it was fresh ground hazelnut then the syrupy sweet tasting extract) tasting, it is at least, not overdone. Honey, maple and light caramel round out the flavor, with a finish of maple-cream butter and more chocolate malts. Little hops apparency, just some earthiness. Body, was sadly quite light and watery. Perhaps the kegs having traveled so far hurt the beer, so I will have to try this one again. It didnt taste old though, so Iím not sure. Low carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 Sweet, nutty flavor that was far more smooth than I expected. Brown in color with tan head. Very excellent. Would certainly try this one again.

Bottled. Iíve been looking forward to trying this beer for a while. Pours a deep brick/brown, a small frothy head quickly fell to nothing, and carbonation is very light. Aroma is very light, sweet maltyness, hazelnut extract (mmmm!!), really nothing else(?). Flavor is smooth, with light malt and very nutty bitterness, quite nice. Carbonation bites my tongue a little and the body is much lighter that I would have expected. All in all highly drinkable brown ale, just wasnít as robust ("EL GRANDE NUTZ!!!!!!") as I thought it would be.

Hands down the BEST brown ale Iíve had...and I LOVE the "nectar!" (donít ask)....Brown appearance (hence, brown ale), creamy, sweet, roasted malts, lots of nuts going on there, and smooooooooth, baby. Wow, this push to 200ís kicking my ass.

madsberg (10144) - SÝborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2005
Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Clear. Light brown and dense head. Loads of chocolate, sweetness and some fruit in the aroma. Flavour is dominated by chocolate as well. Is rather sweet and light malty and fruity. Is smooth and light hoppy. Ends on a light bitter note. Is medium bodied.

Really enjoyed this brown (again, not my style) Roasted maltiness in aroma. Mocha Hazelnut flavor and finish with a nice balance of hoppiness. Iíd like another.

Deep color with little to no head. Big toasted nose to it. Great smooth flavors of toasted nuts mixed with a touch of molasses. Nice light hop to it. Very clean finish.
