Dark brown and thick tan head. Rich malty body, very sweet and thick. Minimal hop bitterness, sticky syrup feel. Overall a tasty and unique interpretation of a brown ale.

Bottle from Tivoli in Helsingborg. Smell of hazelnuts and roasted malts. Pours a dark amber colour with a medium beige head. Taste of roasted malts and some chocolates. Palate is somewhat thin but enough to be decent. Overall an okay beer but no best seller.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, earthy notes, a burnt character, this one seems to miss the mark for me.

Ruby brown in color with good light tan head, good lacing, and a thick collar. Aroma is dark molasses, nutty and earthy. Taste follows pretty much identically. Mild hop bitterness in this one. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Definitely my favorite of the three beers I had at the brewery.

Great taste, and one of my favorite celebration beers. I think itís a must-have at any party, and it pairs well with hamburgers or steak.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft. Sweeter aromas than Iíd have expected. Toffee, a touch of roasted malt, some milk chocolate and caramel. Really dark brown with an off-white head. Sweeter taste than Iíd have expected from an imperial brown ale. A bit of alcohol, toffee, pecans, and brown sugar. I wish this one had more body or less alcohol. As it is, itís a bit off-balance.

This ale is distinguished by the maple syrup taste. It is dark brown with a small head. The hops are balanced by the malt flavors. I donít appreciate the syrup taste, it has a taste that needs getting used to. Overall, however, it is a good brown ale.
