From tap @Mikkeller. A thin layer of tiny tanned bubbles, over a hazy mid-brown body. Hop resins and citrussy fruitiness in the aroma, properly backed by sweet-scented, light nutty and caramelly malts. Taste is fully balanced. Fruity flavoring hops along with a fine toasted, caramelly and light nutty malt flavor. Solid bitterness. Medium full. Fruity bitterness linger in a lasting finish.
What a Brown! Jade (434) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2011
Brown (suprising...) with a biege head. Malty hops aroma. Incredibly bitter hops flavour, really sticks to the back of the throat. Not too bad. mkel07 (5845) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2011
500ml bottle. A true brown ale with a dark brown tea like colour and an even puff of light brown foam skimming the surface. Malty biscuit aromas are pleasing on the nose without being overbearinbg. Smooth and easy to drink with a mildly warming flavour and moderately creamy mouthfeel. Ratman197 (14674) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2011

Brown colored brew. Nice hops and malts in the aroma. Balanced taste of malts with expressive hops. Nice approach to the style. Good.
Palme (4780) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2011
0.5l bottle from BrewDog webshop. This one pours a dark brown body with a small sidesticking beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of some faint hops and perhaps some chocolate malts. It’s average carbonated, medium-bodied and has a really nice smooth almost creamy mouthfeel. Flavors are strong and nice chocolate malts, dark fruits, hints of sawdust and some caramel, it’s perfectly hopped and light sweet. Ends with a mild cocoa both finish and aftertaste. This was a really nice brown ale that I definitely would like to taste again! Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011

Bottle. It’s a clear, reddish dark brown beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. Roasted, chocolatey aroma with some notes of hops. A good dash of coffee thrown in for good measure. Some chocolate and coffee in the mostly roasted flavor, where I also sense a dash of licorice, oddly enough. Smooth and nicely carbonated. Full body. Lighlty roasted and bitter finish. Certainly a nice brown ale. 110908 Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted sweet malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid toasted sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

musty chocolate, woodland floors and a slight vegetal hoppiness on the nose of this dark browwn ale. Thinnish tight foam head. Rounded malt body with a burst of floral hops and a bitter finish with chocolate malt and red fruits.
