Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Appears to be infected but still tasty, more like a dark Saison now. Pours dark brown, fizzy tan head...Aroma is similar to a Flanders red and flavor of a dark Saison..extremly fizzy mouthfeel....

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a clear and brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, caramel and dirt. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is thin with sweetness. Overall an average beer.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #450. Nice looking beer, clear dark brown with a little red glow and a light tan head. Light toast and it does have an oatmeal cookie quality too it, although it could just be in my head. Nice toasty flavor, a touch of smokiness in there with a light caramel malt thing going on. Very smooth and pretty nice. (2012)

Foffern (1722) - Bod, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2011
Deep, golden redbrown with some cloudyness. Aromas are dominated by sweet malty notes of brown sugar, nuts, raisins and other dried fruits. A roasty malt taste with much leather and some nutty flavours. Medium mouthfeel, somewhat thin. Low carbo. A decent beer, and one of a kind brown ale which reminds of a christmas beer.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2011
0.75 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown color. The aromas of nuts, milk chocolate and raisiny caramel. Much dryer taste with plenty of woody milk chocolate (cocoa nibs) and tart fruitiness, not much else. Feels a bit empty, like flavors had been ripped off and left with woody chocolate and dry tartness.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Pours a very dark brown with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, bread and caramel. The flavour is sweet lightly roasted malt with notes of bread, nuts and caramel leading to a dry subtle finish. Quite liked this one.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of Palme, shared @ tasting with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew feat. Foffern, StoreMy and the local media! :-) Pours a deep red-hued brown body with a small white head. Nose is deep roasty malty tones, nougat, nuts, hints of wood and caramel. Lovely. Taste is similar but a bit less potent: nuts, caramel, roasted malts and hints of wood and dark malts. Extremely well balanced, and the different flavors - although not as explicit as the nose would indicate - are all as tuned to perfection regarding their relation to the rather thin (but extremely drinkable) body as possibly can be. A little masterpiece from CC in this bottle, and undoubtedly the best brown ale Ive had.

This is one of the best browns Ive had. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma has chocolate, vanilla, sweet malt, coffee. The flavor has the same. Very nice smooth feel.
