Bottle. Poured a nice rich clear medium to dark brown with an average sized light brown head that was mostly diminishing leaving just a little residue hanging around allowing for good lacing. The aroma was of a nutty caramel malt and a doughy yeast with a nice note of hazelnut, brown sugar and a ever so light touch of coffee. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of caramel and coffee in the beginning. Then it matured into a very malty-nutty flavor with the hazelnut being the most pronounced at the finish, although the flavor could of lasted a little longer on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy yet slightly watery in texture as alot of brown ales can be with the carbonation being ever so perfectly soft. Overall a very nice malty nut brown ale, this happens to be my favorite style and this brew fits it very well indeed.

355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of nuts. Taste reminds me of a vanilla ice cream wafer. Sweet finish. Very pleasant although maybe a little thin.

Bottle from Free Press, Cambridge..pours an uninviting cloudy milky light brown. Bouquet of burnt coffee, Lotus biscuit spread, hazelnut, cedar. Sweet milk chocolate taste. Thinnish palette. Not perfect but mighty tasty and a joy to drink.

Bottle from tommyknocker bar in Helsinki. Beautiful brown porter with lots of hazelnut and very little roastiness. Easy drinking beer and a wonderful combination. Superb!

abemorsten (3030) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Disig dyp oransje kropp med et medium lysebrunt skumdekke. Krokan og lønnesirup dominerer av lukt. Nøtteaktig karamell og knekk i munnen. Medium kropp. Lettdrikkelig.

nihtila (819) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
15.5.2014. Brown-amber colour, thick dense brown head. Aroma of strong hazelnut, cant get much more, maybe toffee. Palate is smooth and creamy, also lots of hazelnut, malts, some chocolate and coffee, syrupy sweetness. Surprisingly good for flavoured beer.
