Bulk_Carrier (5874) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a murky brown color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that held and dissipated at a good pace. Lace clung effectively. The aroma had some sweet and roasty pecans, mild cake, milk chocolate, sweet dough, some coffee beans, a touch of vanilla and had some earthy bitter hops at the end. The flavor blended all of this fairly nice. Sweet to roasty to bitter and clenching the aftertaste pretty nice. Mild sweet and bitter sort of finish. The palate was about medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good brown ale that I could have again for me, but I didnt get all of those extra hoppy notes that they said they put in this.

1 pint can from middle of 2016. Pours a hazy brown shade with white froth. Aroma is of floral and grassy hops but not fruity in nature, and some malt - dough, and bread. There are very faint notes of coffee in the aroma - perhaps due to the age of the can - which are not too prominent. Taste is exact opposite of aroma, strongly dominated by the roasted Kenyan coffee, over biscuity and bready, flavours of the malt, but next to no hops flavours at all! Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery, reflective of the rather weak underlying brown ale, which manages to stay afloat solely by virtual of the dominant coffee flavours.

Draught at Kd & Bajer. Low fluffy white lasting head. Pitch black body Sweet cocoa coffee caramel aroma. Pretty bitter flavor with cocoa coffee and caramel. Low carbonation. Long finish. Too bitter in my opinion.

Villyzzz (370) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 29, 2017
Can at home. Pours dark brown with a big off-white head. Aroma has citrus and coffee. Taste has interesting features for a brown ale. Some citrus, espresso, chocolate and roasted malts. Quite a weird combination but still quite well balanced. Fresh and light on mouth but not watery or too light palate for the style. Impressive.
