Dark brown color. Lovely aroma of chocolate and hops. Taste was a letdown, like most brown ales. Dry, hoppy, spritzy, with some lemon, roasty, and hop flavor. Probably tastes good with grilled food.

Gehbe (411) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 7, 2016
Pours clear brown with medium light brown head, little lacing. Nose of coffee and toffee, also notes of chocolate, caramel, malt and a little herbal flavor. Tastes more bitter than sweet, bitterness is rather roasty with some roasty acidity as well. Palate is fairly dry, medium carbonation. Midway between brown ale and stout, with a nicely balanced flavor that is not overwhelmed by roastiness.

On tap at Stirling Hotel. The head does dissipate quite quickly, beautiful malty, biscuit aroma with a very smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Extremely smooth, extremely drinkable. Probably my favourite brown ale in this ABV range

17Beer (306) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Big scents of malt, licorice and bread. Pours a dark, opaque brown with a tan head. Tight bubbles and dissipates after time. Good lacing. Starts big with falvors of caramel and burnt toast. But it has a short, abrupt finish with a sour that doesnt linger. Light carbonation. All in all like a good but unassertive porter. Quite nice.

En forfriskende og fyldig ale, den smager lidt af lakrids og har en god sdme.

Darwenus (1067) - Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2016
This is a very good brown ale, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It pours dark brown with a fast-fading head. The aroma is walnuts, light molasses notes, some nutmeg. The flavor is cereal and bread malts, a little bit of hop burn, and very subtle candy glaze on the finish. Good beer.

Sweet nutty aroma and taste pours a autumnal brown with a thin white head quite refreshing

Aroma is fairly mild and just barely meets the test for a Brown ale. In the flavor department its much better, still could be fuller, rounder, and richer. Tad over carbonated too.
