Pours a dark brown with nice creamy off white head that goes flat quickly. Aromas of caramel and smoked malts. Nice full robust soft mouthfeel. Caramel malt follows through in the mouth, with lovely long lingering aftertaste. Loved this. Bootlegger007 (151) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Appealing dark brown colouring, flavours of toffee and caramel finishing bitter across the palate, this Brown Ale could easily become a regular.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are roast malt, nuts and lots of licorice. Also some caramel and hops. Davros (3178) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2011
Pours dark brown with ruby tints and a lasting creamy head with loads of lacing.
Nose shows soft nutty malt alongside lots of caramel and chocolate. Also present is a big piney, earthy hop hit.
Flavours are more roasty, lots of cocoa and nutty notes. Again, there’s a fair amount of piney hops. Finishes with a strong hoppy bitterness, a bit too strong in my opinion.
Nice moderate carbonation. yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 7, 2011
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is citrusy and grapefruity hoppy. Roasted malty, breadish and citrusy hoppy. Bitter and citrusy. Dark toffee caramelish finish. marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 16, 2011
Pours dark brown with a rich tan head and a roasty chocolate aroma. There is a hearty bitter chocolate flavor with a dry hoppy finish that clings to the palate. This beer is rich enough to have with your dinner and refreshing enough to quench your thirst. Cheers! back to New Zealand.
