Can 330ml. Chocolate brown, offwhite head. Malty aroma. Taste is full of nuts and sweet vanilla fugde. Very pleasant palate with a somewhat stocky texture and a good level of carbonation. Enjoyable!

Can from Grunting Growler. Subtle roasted notes and treacle in the aroma. Really pushes the boundaries of what a brown ale is: so dark it's almost a porter. It really works. Burnt cocoa and malt and a big flavour right through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl can @ home. BBE 05/2017.
Pours black color with a large beige head. Aroma is dry nutty with mild bread notes, roasted malts and fair amount of hops. Flavor is also dry roasty, malty bitterness, mild dried fruits, cocoa and some hops, some caramel and mocha on the aftertaste. Carbonation is a tad strong but doesn’t disturb at all. Quite nice and dry Brown Ale with interesting nuances.
