KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown foamy head the dissipated slowly and produced decent sticky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted malts, a mild resin hop and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of coffee, molasses, a bit of caramel and a light chocolate. The taste was a malty sweet with ever so light chocolate and caramel notes early on with the latter being bitter and having a strong dose of coffee with a nice hint of hops at the end. The flavor lasted a little longer that average with the hoppy coffee flavor settling nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and a tad watery in texture with the body being somewhere around medium and having a moderate carbonation. Overall a really tasty Brown Ale with a slightly sweet bold middle and nice light malty, hoppy finish.

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.

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!

Echon (495) - 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.
