COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Brown ale er den mørkere version af en forårsøl. Den er brygget på alle 5 mulige bygmalte til rådighed i bryggeriet og humlet kraftigt op. Således et forsøg på at komme i nærheden af "Humlet belgier" igen, men nok en anelse mørkere.

English: Brown Ale is a darker version of a spring beer. It is brewed with all our 5 available barley malts and strongly hopped. It is an attempt to get near "Humlet belgier" again, but probably slightly darker.

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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 2, 2008
(0.7l) Deep dark brown colored with red hints, little yellow head. Caramelly aroma with chocolate, licorice, yeast and some interesting spiciness, mild coffee also comes up with nice fruits. Medium bodied, soft palated. Flavor is more sweet, licorice with chocolate and caramel, still mild alcohol also present. Aftertaste dries with flowery spinach and lasting licorice. Fine brew with fine licorice and convenient sweetness.

thewolf (11150) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. [thank you, Myrup!]
Pours a clear dark brown - looks red up against the light. Head is initially quite fizzy, but settles as a creamy beige whipped cream topping. Aroma is flowery hoppy with a nuts-like background. A little spritzy. Powerful flavour. Roasted, chocolate, nuts. A little burned at the far end and a touch of yeasty off flavours. Very competent brew, I must say.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle. (#15) Reddish brown pour, leaving a nice, beige head. Fruity and sweet, roasted aroma with caramel and some chocolate notes. Nice fruity and sweet flavor, quite hoppy, finishing with sweetness and a nice spicyness. Full to medium body. A lovely brown ale. I’m growing more and more fond of this brewery, it’s a pity they don’t have a wider distribution. (071013)

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Mahogony color. Very little head. has an interesting roasted bitterness. Seems to be a hint of sesame seeds and spice. Flavor is a bit thin, but does have a slight bitterness. Good beer.
