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. Its almost unfair to classify this as a brown ale, but if you do, its 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. Its really cool to see a brewery doing so many variations on a brown ale....a style which is perceived by alot of people (and Im guilty of this myself) as being so ordinary.

Growler 100 cl. Courtesy of Plovmand. Pours a clear deep amber with a small off-white head. Rather sophisticated aroma, a little wood and nuts. Medium body, sweet vanilla beans - like the orange Malaco licorice allsorts. Roasted malts and nuts. Rather subdued bitterness. Very candy-like. 090410

Pinball (12031) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 8, 2010
Bottle from the legendary Cigar city, shared by the legendary plovmand. In the legendary beershop lbutikken on an ordinary wednesday afternoon. Thanks for sharing, Thomas. Clear brown, small smooth light brown head. Sweet toffee vanilla aroma. Flavor is strong, toffee, dark caramel, vanilla, faint citrussy hops to balance. Unfortunately for me, im not very much into brown ale, and not very much into toffee, but the quality shines through anyway.
