Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a very long time, finally reducing to a thin cap and a medium collar which in turn did produce some good sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted cereal malt and a leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, molasses and a bit of oats.
The taste was extremely malty and a tad sweet with hints of caramel and molasses early on, and then became rather creamy and a little bitter with notes of chocolate and coffee towards the end. The flavor hung on for a good long duration letting an espresso mocha taste settle in wonderfully on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a light creamy robust texture and a mild to medium carbonation.
Overall a brew that is an exquisite representation of this style, with the oats giving it a nice smooth, creamy feel and a great drinkability. Most definitely one of the best Brown Ale’s I have tasted to date...
0,355l can from Beergium. Clear, cola looking beer with small and quickly vanishing head. Aroma has dark malts, soft roastiness, coffee, peanuts and rye bread. Taste has dark malts, caramel, soft coffee, some grass and peanuts. Low bitterness at the end. Medium body. Nice and easy to drink brown ale. cilvekspagaisu (22) - - JUN 20, 2017

Pours watery deep amber brown with thin creamy off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich roasty malt, a hint of caramel. Blindfolded I’d call this a porter. Taste is roasty caramel malt, paired with a thin body, solid depth of roast throughout, lots of leather and oak in a relatively thin body.

Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: cocoa, oat bread, nutty, toffee & caramel, hint of leather. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, soft to moderate carbonation, dry medium finish. (4/5)
Pleasant chocolate and toasted oat character combine with a smooth body to make this easy-drinking and mellow. Nothing too exciting, but a solid (if somewhat middle-of-the-road) example of a not-very-exciting style. (13/20)

Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor que se disipa a velocidad de coche de F1. Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma simple y placentero: cacao, frutos secos, malta, toffee, caramelo, reminiscencias de café. Sabor pleno, típico de Brown Ale, pero riquísimo, casi dulce: malta tostada, cacao, almendras, avellanas, caramelo. Final acaramelado. Esperaba algo distinto, pero me parece una buena Brown Ale. El estilo no da para mucho más, de todas formas.
