330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours mid brown with small tan head. Aromas of malt, caramel, some leather. Similar flavour, big caramel hit up front, some hoppiness coming through later. AaronTDubs (500) - - JUL 11, 2016
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 (442) - 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. wilza320 (23) - - JUN 11, 2016
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 (340) - 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 doesn’t linger. Light carbonation. All in all like a good but unassertive porter. Quite nice.

12oz Bottle - pours dark brown thin head - coffee and chocolate on the nose - spicy on the pallet - great balance of bitter and sweetness. nybol (1765) - DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
En forfriskende og fyldig ale, den smager lidt af lakrids og har en god sødme. kambei70 (1036) - - APR 29, 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. redders1974 (1392) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2016
Sweet nutty aroma and taste pours a autumnal brown with a thin white head quite refreshing
