Flaske fra helsekosten på Kvaddå, delt med Ovesen mens vørteren koker i Grainfather: brunlig rav med kort, storboblet skum. Urter og malt i aroma, i tillegg litt innslag av kjeks, røde bær og mørke fløtekarameller i smaken. Slank, med en tørr og behagelig lett bitterhet i avslutningen - glir sorgløst innenfor snippen.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.01.15. Muddy brown. Small, pale brown head. Not much lacing. Some aroma of brittle, dark caramel and dark malt. Similar taste, with hints of unfermented wort. Low bitterness, but high drinkakability.

Sweet Chocolate and nut flavor on the aroma. Hop aroma is low. Appearance is a hazy brown with an off white head. Flavor has notes of toasted bread with a medium bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium level of carbonation. Overall, it's a good tasting sessionable beer. Personally, I would prefer more hop flavor and aroma.

Aroma is malty and dark bready with some dark dried fruits for good measure. Taste is the same as the aroma really, but with some sweet and moist forest sensations adding to my already existing aversion against the style. So... it is as good as it can get for a brown ale. It’s nicely crafted though.

Nice aroma of bitter chocolate, some fresh bread and a hint of raisin. Nice brown color, with a tan head. Sweet malt up front. Chocolate, toasted almond, and some dark fruit initially. Bitterness is brief but cuts sweetness nicely. Somewhat watery mouth feel on the finish. Well balanced. Not bad.
