36 cl bottle, BBE 11/2012lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Hoppy aroma contains some malty nuts. Flavour is hoppy and malty with some hints of nuts. The slight contamination makes this bitter and a bit a non-pleasant way. More brown IPA than a brown ale.
360 ml bottle. BBE 11/2012.Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 5, 2011
Pours a dirty, dark brown colour with a thick lacy head. Aroma of strong floral hops, pine needles and caramel. Flavour of floral hops, pine needles, caramel, stinging bready malts and some dark fruits. Crispy, caramel-like finish with some mild stinging notes. Slightly unbalanced and far from your typical brown ale.
Bottle. Pours murky brown colored with a nice lasting light brown head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and dark fruit. Malty flavor with roasted notes and hops in the finish. Decent brew. joergen (28991) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2011

bottle from kihoskh.
clear brown, smoot hlarge light brown head.
very delicate fresh dried fruity (if that makes sense) aroma, also malts and a little bit of flowers. complex. spices.
flavor is bitter spicy, malty, bitter hops, quite complex, interesting hop profile. A beer totatlly its own, not much like most other brown ales i’ve had. Tasty.

Bottle. Dark amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some fruitiness, faint citrus hoppyness and roasted malt. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, fruitiness with caramel and some citrus hoppyness, faint roasted malt. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, caramel, citrus hoppyness with some roasted malt. Sweetish brown ale with caramel – nothing special. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2011
20110616 36cl bottle from State Line. No way I would have tried this beer if not for some excellent experiences with other Baird beers recently. Cloudy pale brown with small, quick beige head of sticky foam. Aroma of cedar, white pepper, caramel, and cheap pipe tobacco. Thinner bodied with ample, even eff, sharp peppery finish. A bit malty sweet at the end, but then overrun with leafy, earthy bitterness. Good brown ale. obguthr (6595) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Faint nut aroma. Hazy light brown, thin head. Maple syrup flavor with peanut underneath. Overly sweet southern english brown. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2011
Sampled at slutfest 2.0. Raisin and yeast and not much going on. A biscuity dryiness. Maybe this would have been good fresh, but didn’t really hold up. Do like the lable though. OneBrewru (11) - JAPAN - APR 21, 2011
Angry Boy Brown pours a deep mahogany color with a light khaki head.
The smell is of molasses and light spices, especially nutmeg and black pepper. Wet skunky hops come through.
Taste-wise, this beer is much hoppier than expected. Wet skunky, resinous pine hop flavors dominate and the malts take a back seat.
The mouthfeel is medium thick, dry, with very light carbonation.
Overall this is a decent beer. Maybe a few too many hops for the style with a bit dry of a finish.
