3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wanted this beer to impress me more. Appearance is a nice dark brown with some light coming through. The head has nice tight bubbles off white in color. Aroma is very simple with caramel maltiness followed by some nuttiness. The taste is where I wanted more as I didnít get much complexity. I did get some nice nuttiness but not much else but mild hop and some cola on the finish. A nice sessionable beer overall.

Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home while watching football. Appearance is a very dark brown with a red hue at the base and a large bubbly off white head. Aroma of oats, light molasses, toffee, light chocolate, very nice. Taste goes down very smooth, rich in oats, light vanilla, toffee, really nice stuff.

Aroma is nutty malts, coffee and a good hint of the oatmeal. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts, caramel, oatmeal smoothness/creaminess and a lightly tart finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, but more subdued than in a stout. Medium-dark brown color with a nice sticky head. Taste is roasted malt, cocoa and a little coffee with a nice hop bitterness that stays around for a good while. Dangerously easy-drinking, probably thanks to the lower ABV. An excellent beer.

Pours a clear chestnut with a creamy khaki head and sticky striped lacing .... great looking beer .... aroma of earthy, roasted, caramel malts and cocoa .... also has a light vanilla to it .... taste is of roasted and caramel malts with a nice touch of cocoa, very light coffee and definitely some vanilla and cream ..... mouthfeel is slick and creamy ... finish is bitter and dry with a dry cocoa/roastedness ... great brown ale missing that nutty taste I like in a brown ale, but the vanilla and cream make up for it ... could drink this all day

Pours dark brown with a small head, barely noticeable. You can taste the caramel and itís quite smokey tasting, too. Itís not especially strong tasting or hard hitting, so Iíd rather have Furious or something with a bit more distinct taste. Still, itíll get the job done if nothing else is around.

Dåse. Mørkebrun, rødlig kant. Ok beige skum. Sødlig maltet næse. Lakrids. Lidt floral humle. Mild bitterhed. Lidt slap i ledene.

Can, thnx to Secret Summer Santa. Pours a hazy brown beer with a minimum amount of off white head on top. Aroma is mostly coffee with caramel and cookies. Very nice and inviting. Flavour is again very much coffee, very full flavored for such a low abv beer. Coffee is backed up by a welcome sweet touch, some caramel and a faint hoppy touch. Medium short finish, very nice brown ale.
