500 ml bottle.laiti (8508) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Pours a brown amber colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, perfume and grassy hops. Flavour of toasted malts, grassy hops, floral notes and nuts. Some perfumic notes as well. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes very bitter, grassy and musty. Has some off-flavours I think, but not bad.
50 cl bottle @ home. Batch #53: BBE 12/2012olio (10472) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Looks and smells like an amber ale. Aroma is slightly sweet with resin, some fruits and hints of vanilla. Flavour is hoppy with resin, some spices and hints of vegetables. Very foamy palate. Some bready malt does occur as the overwhelming CO2 gets out of the way.
Indeed this is unlike any Brown Ale I’ve had as this feels no Brown Ale at all. I’d call this an Amber Ale.
50 cl bottle. BBE 12/2012. Batch #53.nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours clear mahogany color with a huge foamy head. Aroma of fruits, malts, caramel notes and some hops. Flavor of bitter hops, some hops, harsh bitter malts, caramel notes and some spice notes. As the most of the carbonation disappears, some bready notes appear. A bit too harsh bitter palate. Lots of CO2. Not my cup of ..beer.
The aroma is light with toasted malt, soapy hops, and a slight sourness that turns earthy. The appearance is brown with a huge foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall I won’t lie to you it’s a little disappointing but drinkable. SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a large tan head. Good lacing and head retention throughout. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, dates, walnuts fill the senses. Taste is of dark toasted caramel malt, brown sugar, dark dried fruit, dates, with some nice walnut flavor and earthy hops. Palate is a well balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness with a slightly sticky medium body. Finishes with some sweet roasted caramel malt, a bit of brown sugar, dried fruits with some good earthy hops for balance, ending has a lingering roasty nutty walnut flavor. Overall an excellent flavorful, and tasty well balance brew. Very nice.

Poured out of a bottle from Craft Brew Cellar - Belmont Mass
Dark Body - tan head - not very nutty - smooth taste
Paired well with dark chocolate
Would get again - for slightly lower price than paid JorisPPattyn (10060) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2012
Huge, very fine-bubbled yellow beer, fed by very finely & lively carbonated opaque brown beer; shards of lace. Very grapey hops mixing with good roasted chocolate to make an appealing dessert’ aroma. Hessian sacks, dusty hopbales. Bitter-hoppy-chocolate, Mousse au Chocolat . Touch of something fruity - kiwifruit or passionfruit, lending even some fruity sweetness warming up. Slightly soapy retronasal. On the verge of overcarbonated, fizzy. Medium bodied. Very good, appetizing beer. But, playing advocated of the devil, it is A (quite good) brown-coloured ale. It is not Brown Ale, if you catch my drift... zacgillbanks (5450) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog website. Very dark brown with chocolate, floral and vanilla flavours, spicy red fruit and a creamy chocolate and fruit finish. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Brown color. Medium-sized khaki head. Little lacing. Hoppy aroma. Some malt notes. Taste is malty with a nice hop presence. A little malt sweetness and a nice bitterness to balance it out. A little thinner than imagined, but overall decent. rosenbergh (11759) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2012
