4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy deep mahogany amber with a thin light beige cap. Nutty and semiearthy sweet nose. Smooth autumnal flavors on the palate with maple leaves, brown malt, hazelnuts and almonds, gentle earthy chocolate, and a touch of toasted biscuit. Really nice brown, admittedly. Could do with more chocolate but I love the nuttiness so much Iím willing to forgive it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours brown with amber edges and tan head. The aroma is roasty malts, a bit of dusty malt astringency, crystal malts and mild notes of chocolate. The taste has rich maltiness with levels of roasted malts, caramelized malts, mild biscuit malts and just a hint of chocolate. Midway a blunted sting of malt astringency mixed with vague hop bitterness helps draw the experience to a close. It leaves a roasty mildly bitter after taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/28/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Seminole! Hazy brown pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring and laces a bit. Nice aroma with a bit of caramel, light chocolate, and even some butterscotch in a good way. Sweet chocolate flavor at first that transitions to caramel and some sort of yummy pie spiced type thing. Tasty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 16 Apr 2010) Dark brownish amber colour with a huge, beige head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit, dark bread and a hint of citrus. Malty, slightly toasted taste with dark fruit, dark bread, nuts and a touch of citrus in the finish. Medium body, balanced bitterness, slightly sweetish. Not the best from Bells, but a nice and tasty brown ale

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color was nothing extraordinary... translucent brown with a creamy white head. Nose has more flowers and perfume than I would have guessed with hints of malt. Flavor is lacking... grainy and yeasty with not a whole lot else. Finish is flat and a little musty. Definitely a Euro brown and not an American brown.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with Pat and Tony. Pours a amber, brown body with slight off white lacing. Aroma is delicious caramel and vanilla. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and soft. Taste is a bit of a let down after smelling the delicious aroma. Still a solid brown, and probably one of the best browns.
