3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that dissipated quickly but left behind some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was that of moderate a toasted grain malt, a mild pine hop and a meaty yeast with notes of roasted coffee, caramel, bitter sweet chocolate with a hint of nuts and molasses.
The taste was sweet and malty with a mild hint of chocolate and molasses in the beginning and then became moderately bitter sweet and nice and roasty with notes of coffee, caramel and a mild hoppy finish. The flavor only lasted a short while, but was very enjoyable during that short duration.
Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy in texture with a medium body and a mild carbonation.
Overall a very tasty Brown Ale that had a nice bold bitter sweet coffee flavor with a nice hoppiness at the end.

Smuttynose Old Brown Dog is ok but not a style standout. Clear brown pour with a fizzy head that disappears too quickly. Aroma is sweet and a bit hoppy. Taste is sweet but flat and kind of thin. Old Brown Dog is drinkable but nothing special.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
