Resin-floral scent with a cough drop type of accent. Very peculiar smell that is as enticing as it is strangely arranged. Shines a beautiful crystal clear golden-red when held up to the light. Head is frothy white initially, but dissapates rapidly. Light sweet taste that compliments the aforementioned aroma. Light body with a extremely thin, watery texture. No carbonation whatsoever, with a abrupt finish that diminishes the amazing taste of the ale rapidly. I think this beer has received an unfair overall rating. I would highly recommend this ale and its strange label, and with my rating I aim to bring up its status. ;-)

From 330ml bottle. Pours light brown with a thin beige head. Nose and flavors are heavy malt and caramel, raisiny notes with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, very drinkable.

Brown Ale at its best! Dark, smooth, soft to the palate. Excellent to finish the night Round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belo creme denso e castanho. Pouca duração. Liquido opaco, marrom intenso. Aroma caramelado, alcoólico, canela. Pungente. Bom sabor. Suave. Malte torrado. Alcoólica. Breve duração. Mesmo... Retrogosto de pouca intensidade, opaco até eu diria. Não valeu a pena...

Pours a brown color with no head. Has a very nice, very sweet brown sugar and caramel aroma. Flavor is sweet brown sugar, caramel, and raisin. Has a thin, watery feel, but tastes great.

Aromas of caramel, milk chocolate, somewhat grapey. Clear red-brown with bronze highlights, and a lasting beige head. A little sweet, flavors reflecting the aromas. Smooth, medium bodied.

From notes. 330 mL bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a brownish ruby with a minimal white head and some sporadic lacing. The aroma is surprisingly sour (perhaps the beer has skunked) And there is a little more of a booziness to the sour on the back of the aroma. The flavor is definitely a bit more nutty than I thought it would be, but it was nicely received. The mouth feel is definitely thin, but the medium carbonation does help out a little. The aftertaste is quick and painless, and a little watery. I wish this thing had a little more of the nuttiness that the flavor delivered

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.
