Pours a dark amber with a moderate, creamy head. It has a nice malty, yeasty aroma. The taste is of dry, bitter malts. I got a slight hefe-yeast taste in the finish which detracted some, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

It pours a dark brown color with hints of orange. Nothing really stands out in the taste. There are some hints of nuts, some roast, and some caramel. But it’s full, earthy, easy to drink, and delicious. Perfect for a day of watching football.

Clear brown pour. Light beige head. Aroma is nutty and loads of crystal malt. Slight chocolate. Taste is nutty cocoa and caramel with earthy notes up front. Palate is thin when cold but as it warms it develops a medium bodied feel. Interesting brown.

But bland but tasty malt led beer. Nice chilled and paired with cheese on toast. I like it!

Pours very dark amber with a thick frothy head that lasts forever. Sweet malts with some hops for balance. Pretty good flavor and easy to drink but just a tad watery mouth feel, nothing really special.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep chestnut brown beer with a medium off-white head that lingers. Nose is mild with subtle hints of nuts, brown sugar, and not much else. Taste is more pronounced with layers of sweet and roasted grain developing into a light bitterness at the end. A pleasant beer, but not particularly memorable.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is deep brown, hazy, with minimal foam cap. Aroma is toasted malt. Hop aroma is minimal to unnoticed. Taste is deep roasted malt. Very toasty and slightly nutty. Typical brown ale malt character with just enough hops to balance. Mouthfeel is light to medium, low carbonation. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness to balance the malt. Leaves a toasted malt flavor on the tongue.

Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011. This one was quite pleasant albeit not that exciting. A great autumnal brew that makes you want to sit inside and enjoy it while the rain pours down and the temperature starts to drop. Medium bitterness backed by a slightly spicy caramel, very well balanced and very much enjoyable, though nothing out of the ordinary.
