Flaska. Mörk bärnsten med givmilt smutsvitt skum. I doften: Örter, karamell, sura frukter samt mjölkchoklad. Smakinslag av karamell, päron, örter och en gnutta nötighet. Kolsyrig munkänsla. Något tunn kropp.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe website (£2.09):
Earthy hops and a little bit of caramel sweetness, there is some toasted bitterness that follows this and some nutty notes as well. The aroma seems well balanced and a few darker malts feature as well.
Deep caramel with a thumb sized, foamy beige head that holds very well, leaving some lacing too.
Sweet caramel malts and earthy hops that is followed later on by some bitterness and a touch of grain. I could detect some very faint chocolate and some light roasted malts too.
Well carbonated and quite crisp with mouthfeel and a smooth sort of dry finish. The body is medium and quite filling with a great balance and a smoky, moderately bitter finish.
Frighteningly easy to drink, very smooth throughout and with a crisp, bitter finish; I was looking forward to this one and again Sierra Nevada doesn’t disappoint. Whilst not the very best from the brewery that I’ve tried this one is certainly a good one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dalla Sierra Nevada spira un vento autunnale che sa di luppoli e ha il colore bruno-amarantino delle foglie cadute. Brown ale poetica, intensamente amara, e con note di caramello, luppoli erbacei e sentori di frutta scura. "al cader delle foglie alla massaia non piange il vecchio cuor, come a noi grami", ma per fortuna questa ottima birra ci redime dalla tristezza per l’estate passata!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large white head, and a rich brown color. The nose is full of nutty and herbal notes, with a hint of roasted malts. I can taste toffee, chocolate and more roasted malts. I think it’s little to thin and to much carb for me. But I really like it!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear deep dark brown with minimal head and decent lacing. Aroma of smoked syrup. Taste is smooth and malty with a good dry bitter balance that finishes clean without being too smokey.
