Pours a rich mahogany brown with a medium tan head with good lacing an retention.
Aroma is OK with dark fruits predominating. There is a pungent roastiness as well.
Taste is where this beer excels. Not as sweet as some browns, with a subtle sourness in the midtaste that morphs into a hoppy, smoky bitterness. The smoke flavor hangs in there in the finish. If you like smoky brews, and I do, this is a very fine brown. But it seems to me more in the style of a very smooth dry stout.
Mouthfeel is medium and a little sticky.
Very drinkable. The bitter smoky finish adds an intriguing quality to this brown. I was surprised to find this brew in a attractively priced six-pack. I will be keep in these in the fridge for as long as they are available.

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.

35,5cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain.
Dark brown colour with a frothy white head.
Aroma is malt, caramel, nuts, oats, chocolate, hints of coffee.
Taste is malt, caramel, coffee, toffee, almonds.
Medium body, average carbonation. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 25, 2017
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. UncleKorm (1315) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2017
