superspak (5129) - Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before March 2013. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, roast, light coffee, toffee, herbal, and light dark fruits. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, nuttiness, toffee, roast, light coffee, and light herbal spiciness. Slight herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toffee, toast, nuttiness, and light herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance, complexity, and robustness; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale! Nicely robust and full of balanced flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Ive had this beer many a time and come back for more. It exactly what one wants from a brown ale, expect perhaps the alcohol which is slightly higher to my likening. Good body.

In a mystery case from Beer hawk. Nice sweetish brown ale. Dark brown and a thin head. Little too sweet for my palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle at home in a Hoegaarden snifter. Dark brown with a tan head. Dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Prunes, chocolate, leather and cooked veg flavours. Creamy texture. Not my favourite style, but not bad.

Echon (451) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2016
Dark brown. Chocolate and light roast in the aroma. Light malt flavour with notes of chocolate and a bit of acidity. Somewhat dry taste with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture and prickly carbonation. Overall, a boring brown ale. Decent aroma and nice colour, but there is not a whole lot of flavour here.
