Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Smooth floral and malty beginning. Nice roasted malts together with a very dry and intense body. The mainpart is smooth, fresh, easy to drink but still intense. Dry malty aftertaste with roasted & sourish hints. Caramel, espresso and a nice malty-dry aftertaste with only hints of bitterness. Nice!!

Kahuna1337 (41) - Mariehamn, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Dark brown/copper colour with white head. Not a very strong aroma, a little hint of chocolate. A little maltiness and sweetness to the taste, nothing extraordinary though. A little smokey. Okay on itís own, much better paired with a steak

jamestulloch (1578) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy brown body with a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, stewed tea, metal, nuts and maple syrup. Weak flavour of red apple, toffee and nuts. Thin body with an oily texture. Almost flat carbonation. Just ok, a bit boring.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. This is a a pretty disappointing Brown ale. It is missing any hop bitterness and the maltiness is uni dimensional.

allmyvinyl (4244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2013
330ml bottle from the brewery. Pours chestnut brown with a very thin white head which doesnít hang around. Aromas of toffee and a hint of chocolate. Hops are quite distant, but a touch of pine comes through. The taste has more, and an earthy note. Finishes with a smooth latte bitterness. Good.
