Our Dark Ale is the third beer rounding out our current lineup. It uses a very dark, near espresso-like roast of our chestnuts. The extra dark chestnuts lend a roasty flavor and aroma with notes of chocolate and dark fruits. The hops take a supporting role in this beer allowing the roastiness to come forward in the palette.

Very nice dark ale -- the fact that it’s gluten free is besides the point. Solid malt bill. Nicely carbonated.

DuffMan (10983) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. Tawny medium brown hue, off white head that fades fairly quickly. Sweet nutty profile, with thin bready, papery malts underlying. As a gluten-free offering, this has its charms.

bpreo (3057) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Flat! Free! Sampled at the 2016 McKenzie Cider and Craft Beer Festival, November 4th, 2016.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle bought in Seaside, OR. Toasty nose, of wheat and spices. Taste is toasty, malts, caramel. Creamy texture. A bit watery the whole thing.

Marheb (6355) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2016
(Bouteille): Beaucoup de petits fruits regroupés autours des raisins secs, bleuets et mûres. En bouche c’est pas si mal avec un aspect sirupeux malgré la légèreté. Des notes de noisettes et d’érables accompagnent le bouquet fruité.

ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy nut brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is yellow pea mush, nuts, biscuits, grains and hints of dusty cardboard and cola nut. Taste is nuts, yellow peas, stale buttery notes, rubber hose, biscuits and hints of dusty cardboard, cocoa and sawdust. Oxidized, and weird. Just weird.

Meilby (11831) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle 650ml @ Bakgåreden Både &, Kristiansand
Pours clear brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, nuts, beans, caramel, licorice and hint of floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long nutty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

gunnfryd (15652) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2016
Bakgården Både & 081215. Red amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, hop, caramel. Flavour is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, nuts, chocolate. Medium body. OK beer.

yngwie (17487) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle, 22oz, at Både&. It’s a reddish brown beer with a finger thick light beige head. The aroma is nutty and lightly woody, with some berry hints, roasted notes and some dusty, chocolate hints. It’s full bodied, nicely carbonated and rather dry. Roasted malts, some chocolate and caramel, hints of coffee and nuts, with a faint bready touch. Lasting finish. A bit low on the hops this one, but quite decent anyway. Some bean-like notes all the way, in a nice way. 160227
