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 jtclockwork (16602) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2011

500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga, MelnaZiema2013)Benzai (15623) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
Brown, small head. . Fairly typical brown ale aroma. Stodgy taste, a bit yeasty. Nice bitter bite in finish, but a little metallic too. Unsatisfying.
Bottle shared with Joes, Countbeer and DutchDrebus. Brown colored with a beige head. Just not enough grapefruit-smell for me. Also the taste is nice but just not getting there.

500 ml bottle from Hi Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy/bubbly beige/tan head. Aroma is roast malt and citrus/grapefruit. Med body. Flavor is citrus/grapfruit with a roast malt backbone. It’s reasonably hoppy. More than reasonably for a brown. This is a near neighbor to a black IPA. Finishes nicely bitter. Every sip is a joy. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2011

500 ml botle poured a hazy brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, cocoa, light earthiness, light coffee and a hint of citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, light coffee and a hint of earthiness with a crisp lingering malty finish. Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle at CP&K thanks to madmitch76. It pours a mahogany colour with low/moderate carbonation and a thin beige head. The nose is full of dark fruits; raisins, dates, prunes and roasted malt. The taste is caramel, smokey, slightly citrus, burnt sugar, liquorice, oak and has light bitter finish. It’s not bad, but not overly exciting.
