3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lovely deep garnet-amber hue, lasting tan head. Big fruity nose, melon and cooked field berries, malty bready undertones. Caramel and fruity hop character, hints of cocoa, earthy tannins. A surprisingly hoppy brown ale with soft fruit character and gentle bitterness. Actually very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl BBE 20/09/15 Simple, strong fruity hopyy aroma. Pours clear dark brown with thin, soapy head. Gently sweet, medium bitter. Malty. A mixture of earthy and autumn-like sensations. Medium bodied, gently rough texture, pleasant, well hidden carbonation. Good bitter finish, that bites the tongue for some time. Feels more like brown IPA. A well crafted drink. Pleasant all around.

330ml bottle - Body is dark red-brown with a thin head. Nose is red fruit, plum and a little toffee and a hint of lemony citrus. Taste starts roasty, then some sweetness and caramel with an earthy and herbal bitterness. Nothing spectacular but the best of the three "Crafty Dans".

Sweet flavor, malty, somewhat stale, with caramel, cardboard, nuts and a chocolate note. Finishes a bit drier. Medium-bodied. Not fresh enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown colour. Aroma and flavour have quite a lot of sweet caramel and biscuity malts. Nice but lacks depth.
