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 it’s own, much better paired with a steak

jamestulloch (1244) - 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 (1791) - 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 (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2013
330ml bottle from the brewery. Pours chestnut brown with a very thin white head which doesn’t 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.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2013
Flaska. Hälls upp rödbrun med stort smutsvitt skum. Fruktig och nötig arom. Nötigheten återkommer i smaken, tillsammans med mörk choklad, karamell och röda bär.

suprchunk (2031) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Brown with ruby highlights. Big off white head that falls fast and leaves no lacing. Aroma of malt and raisins. Taste is pretty much the same. Dry, carbonic with a bit of bitterness on the back. Not bad. A little too dry.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2012
33cL bottle. Nice pour, good aroma, BAD taste. I hated it. Sweet and malty, that’s all this is. Body is too full, un-balanced. Unimpressive.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-whit ehead. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor with spicy hints. Has a fruity malty caramel finish.

Another Fathers Day present! Good roasted malt flavours, well hopped too, with a nice long finish, this is pretty good!
