32oz growler provided by DuffManSW. Rating #89. Dark brown with a red hue to it and a light brown head that spread out fairly quickly. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla very nice. More sweet chocolate and a touch of vanilla are well represented in this one , very tasty stuff. (1197) Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
The aroma of sweet vanilla soda to sum it up. The appearance is rich, dark, and clear with a creamy decent head. The flavor of vanilla and smoky notes on top of a crisp brown ale. It is very smooth, the kind you could drink for a while. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2010
Served from a growler thanks to Caleb while waiting in line at the Veritas 007 release. The appearance is a nice amber brown with a white head. The flavors and aromas are rich with creamy vanilla, toasted malts, and a hint of caramel. The mouth was very creamy but lacked some carbonation underneath, I guess this could of been from the growler. Overall a solid brew. jedinord (30) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Tap and growler. Great vanilla and malt aroma, carrying over to the flavor. There is a chocolaty/vanilla/coffee flavor that is just wonderful and creamy. nickd717 (4999) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2010
Growler via trade thanks to Sebletitje. Glad to try another brown ale from the brewery that IMO does the style best.
Pours cloudy chestnut brown with a thick, creamy light yellow-beige head that lasts. Good lacing.
Aroma is nice and sweet. Lots of vanilla, along with sweet caramel, wood, and nuts.
Flavor is fairly sweet and very complex. Caramel and toffee malt notes, chestnut and other nuts, LOADS of vanilla, wood (was this -bal aged?), chocolate, and molasses. Crazy stuff.
Palate is exceedingly smooth and creamy, with medium-full body. Really sticks with you.
It’s almost unfair to classify this as a brown ale, but if you do, it’s great for the style. Drinkable and really enjoyable overall.

From growler, huge thanks to Plovmand for sharing. Dark brown colour. Sweet aroma of roasty malt and vanilla with caramel and some chocolate. Good pleasant mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with toasty malt and vanilla, caramel, some chocolate and nuts. Nice brew indeed. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
sampled on tap at cigar city. Just about clear copper/brown in color with a off white head. Aroma of fresh vanilla bean, caramel, light chocolate. Taste has caramel/molasses with a good amount of vanilla bean flavor. Bittering hops are light, sweetness is moderate. It’s really cool to see a brewery doing so many variations on a brown ale....a style which is perceived by alot of people (and I’m guilty of this myself) as being so ordinary. joergen (29611) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Bottle at Papsø, thanks Plovmand.
Clear orange brown coloured with a small off white head.
Sweet and fruity aroma of malts, caramel, bread and hazelnuts.
Sweet flavour of caramel, bread, liquorice, hazelnuts and hops.
Hoppy finish. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Clear mahogany with a tiny beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, vanilla, caramel and toffee. Flavour had roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, toffee and chocolate notes. Finished sweet. Thanks plovmand.
