Much better than your standard brown. Carmel malts, hints of raisons, cinnamon and vanilla. Smooth and not too sweet in the finish. Great label.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes od raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a very good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Belgian brown ale. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear brown pour with a thin head. Lightly sweet aroma of caramel malts with some fruits and raisins. Smooth and sweet flavor at the start with some mild caramel and toffee notes. Finishes clean with the lightest fruit aftertaste.

b3shine (4412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of malt and a bit of dark fruit (fig?). Solid on the palate. Not a traditional brown, but a good one nonetheless.

worldbeertaste (1546) - AUSTRIA - OCT 3, 2013
Amber brown chestnut with a thick, light tan, lacy, lasting head. Smells complex and attractive. Smells of malt and nut with caramel with banana and prunes. Medium creamy body with soft carbonation. Tastes is very satisfying with a decent level of sweetness with nut, caramel and soft spice with a dark fruity finish. Not that much bitterness. Very easy to drink and goes down quickly. I’m starting to like Brown Ales.
