4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fantastic beer from one of my all time favorite brewers. Firm, clean, deep and perfectly balanced. In my book a modern brown ale is hard to execute, it takes a solid brewer to make me reverent over a style like this.
Dark yellow brown lasting tan beige foam. Aroma rye bread intense. Tastes German rye bread, caramel, licorice. Robust savory roasts. Dry palate. This is old so the hops have faded into a perfumy, tobacco orange. drpimento (3576) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2015
It’s good with the British malts and the American hops are somewhat restrained, but there are a few off qualities. And I don’t understand the purpose of these hops for this style of beer. Just not as good as I’d expected. gunnfryd (14833) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015

On tap at Henriks. A murky brown beer topped by a small, beige head. The aroma is roasted and quite hoppy, with chocolate and coffee. Roasted flavor with a nice hoppy bitterness and citrus peel. Hints of licorice. Full body, soft carbonation. Lasting roasted finish with a nice bitterness and grapefruit. Quite tasteful and pleasant this one. 140616

Aroma is malts, spices and pine/juniper berries. The flavor is malts, fruit, mild sugar sweetness and a mix of citrus hops and tangy in the finish. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
In short: A malty nutty brown ale with a generous refreshing fruity hopping. My type of beer.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed a few weeks after purchase, however fresh this Danish beer can be in a Vermont store.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a large beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is an inviting blend of citrusy hops over a layer of cashews and hazelnuts. In mouth the beer offers a rather corpulent body for a 6% brew with plenty of carbonation. Creamy cake malts, hazelnuts, dense whole-wheat bread, cashews, cacao. That solid nutty malt backbone is almost dominated by the refreshing citrusy hops (grapefruits, others…). I love hoppy brown ale, I’d like it to become a trend like Black IPAs or the more recent trend of White IPAs. This Autumnic Fallout is a very good example on how the harmoniously match a fat creamy nutty malt backbone with a sharp fruity IPA hopping. Looks like I appreciated this beer more than most people here, and I may rate beers against the grain but I never said I was better than everybody else here (I think it all the time but never said it).
