4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The best brown ale I´ve ever tasted, or to be more correct the best beer called brown ale, as I don´t think it has much to do with a brown ale. It reminds me a lot of some of the better belgian strong ales. Dark brown with huge brown head. Aroma licorice, hopps, sweet toffee. Taste licorice, dried fruits, sweet malts. Brown ale or not it´s a great beer.
