Disappointing, some vague hoppy notes and toiday flavours but nothing is fully asserted and it doesn’t really work.

yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. A deep reddish dark brown beer, mostly clear, with a light beige head. The aroma has roasted malts, nuts, toffee and some dried fruits. Cigar and wood hints. Almost licorice-ish in the flavor with dried fruits, toffee, cigar and nuts. Full body, soft carbonation, semi-dry. Lasting finish with a roasted touch Roasted finish with toffee, dried fruits and cigar. Sort of one dimensional, but damn fine anyway. Close to wonderful actually. 140717

Garrold (1135) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, chestnut brown. Sticky, bubbly, off white head. Fairly subtle aroma of nutty, milk chocolate. Light, toasty malt. Taste is nutty dry. Light, milk chocolate sweet. Palate is creamy smooth. Light carbonation makes for easy drinking. Dry finish, with a little hoppy bitterness rounding things off. Lovely.

Marheb (1969) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Lactose, cassonade et brown malt qui sont libérés de toute amertume ou sécheresse. Agréable mais manque un peu de cohérence.

imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones Banbury. Dark chestnut with cream head. I know this is a Brown Ale and therefore should be malty sweet, but this is certainly malty sweet, there is a caramelised fruitiness, sweet alcohol notes and hints of milk chocolate roastiness. Syrupy finish. Not my style really.

Bottle. Thanks Leighton. Pours deep chestnut brown with a medium, staying, creamy light beige head. Aroma has nuts and milky chocolate, mild grass and pine. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of nuts and chocolate, quite Nutella like, light caramel. Fine, lingering bitterness with some citrussy bitterness.
