3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Beautiful reddish-brown with a rocky foam on top. Odd aroma includes some bright fruity hops which follow into the flavor, but both aroma and flavor favor the malt. Dry and toasty, some carmel and a plum kinda fruitiness. Fairly light in body. Dry finish. Very good, but maybe too dry and not malty enough for my taste.

No head whatsoever. Tastes pretty generic for a brown ale, but in a good way. I think the main flavor is molasses and nuts. Good but not great.

Fra flaske på Cafe Blaagaards Apotek: intens karamell- og bæraroma. Bjørnebær, villbringebær. Flott skum som varer. Frisk og med god munnfylde og herlig ettersmak. yes!

Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is chocolate, light roasted, fruit, citrus and biscuits. The flavour is highly fruity woth notes of bubble gum, chocolate and some roast. Quite fruity brown ale.

Bottle. Brown, clear. Nose is intriguing; caramel, hazelnuts, toffee, dark sugar, molasses, some chocolate. and a mixture of earthy hops. And a bit of metallic notes, sadly. Body is fullish, more roasted than the nose, bitter, but not too much. Some oak-like flavours as well. This must be one of the best classic brown ales I’ve tasted. Really nice.

Tapped (@Tryk-Bar):Hazy, amber coloured, big brown fluffy head, sweet dark malt, brown bread, dried fruits and some vinous aromas in the nose, hops in the background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering bitter-malty finish. A very convincing brew…

Pours dark brown copper color with a foamy khaki head. Aroma is metallic roasted malt. Taste is bitter roasted malt with a hop presence and some metallic spice in the finish and some dark pitted fruit too. Palate is thin to medium and finishes dry. Decent beer that has a good roasty malt presence.
