UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 a brown ale for ipa fans. its hoppier than your run of the mill brown ale, and really drinkable, especially on tap. its a fairly different animal on tap - i get the feeling its a little maltier when bottled, could be me though. ive actually come across this beer in bars more often in D.C. than in new york.

I bought this beer in one Coop in Lausanne, in promotion. I drank it today at home, peacefully. I was pleasantly surprised about this beer and until now it is the best one that I tried from this brewery. The body is black/brown, thin foam, normal carbination. The taste is what you could expect from a brown ale, sweet, malty, toffee, some hop, really pleasant at the mouth, good job.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown color. Medium-sized rocky beige head with nice lacing. Earthy toasted malt nose hints at chocolate and herbal hops. Some dark caramel notes, nuts and brown bread. Slightly spicy citrus hops in finish. Cramy mouthfeel and easy to quaff. Very good.

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.

I hated it!!, seriously not good, very confused beer!, watery and poor mouth-feel taste is acidic from that coffee flavour that shouldnt exist in there, but oh well!
