Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber rather than mahogany as claimed on the neck label. Filtered and clear with a light brownish head. Very malty and extremely aromatic from the excellent hops in use. Notes of nuts and caramel and a touch of vanilla. Much more fullbodied than British counterparts. Pretty high carbonation.

Leighton (22084) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
Rich aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Deep, dark brown color with a slightly beige head. Taste was sweet, with strong caramel notes and echoes of the aforementioned malts and chocolate. Quite delicious.

Rasmus40 (21697) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2011
Clear dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt and hoppy. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Bitter and dry finish. An excellent full bodied brown ale with a good hop bite. 160405

Koelschtrinker (21371) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 4, 2011
Geringfügig säuerlicher Antrunk mit hopfig-malzigem Grundton. Minimal alkoholisch, das Malz wird stärker, wird durch die Herbe aber begrenzt. Süffig, in Teilen eher mild. Süffig malzig, erdig, nussig, erfrischende Säure. 7/11/11/11/11/11

fiulijn (21019) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Brown-amber color. Fizzy aroma, white sugar (candy floss), malt, metallic, lightly hoppy. Quite dry, light mouthfeel, with a lot of caramel, some roasted malts and nuts, metallic. Average palate. Poor, IMO.
A big thank to Jens (Ungstrup), Jacob (Lövenlund) and Rasmus (Nørrebro Bryghus) for all the effort!

Theydon_Bois (20497) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Poured at home from a bottle (Dec ’11). Medium brown in colour and almost no head - looked very flat ! Smelt nutt, toffee, very light malt smell. Tasted nutty, caramel, minimal chocolate and malts. Mouthfeel - nothing special, average drinkable beer. Overall - an average beer, would not seek this out again.

saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2009
Bottle. Nice tan head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are rich with nuts, caramel, some roast malt and notes of fruits.

3.3
harrisoni (19194) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle at The Rake, Borough Market. Ruby with lasting beige head. Lovely aroma of berry fruit and US hops. Bready. Quite bland in mouth, but finish is good. Hops on either end. Has a fair dry malt flavour in mouth which sometimes is a little bready.

3.5
rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2004
Dark amber, with a small brownish head. Aroma is fruity with some cirtus. Flavor brings plum, and all together this is a rather mild and ok ale.
