Bottled 0,33L. Dark brown color, much solid aspect with a very creamy and foamy head, much adherent. Little whiskey nose with aromas of cask, cellar, winous sweet rumors, alcohol. Very perfumed mouth with notes of brandy, sugary cereals, moderate alcoholic impact, roast malty and cooffe. Realy complex beer with a rich bouquet and long persistance. Binding impression.

In short: A rich no style brown beer offering a large array of flavor elements. Good beer.
Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed soon after receiving through private importation, months before expiration date but already more than one year after bottling date.
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy-brown body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is toasted, freshly roasted hazelnuts, tree bark, some green stuff (green plants, green hops). Taste has a rich creamy maltiness, mixed-nuts, a thick slice of rye bread, caramel, red fruits, brown bread crust, forest floor, strong yeast presence, a hint of smoke. A nice ‘green’ bitterness (herbal, green pine-needles). Alcohol is a bit more apparent than it should be. Thick fluffy body, lively carbonation, overall Belgian abbey style mouthfeel. This is not simply a Brown Ale on steroids, this is a no-style original beer of brown color. Drinkability is not super-high but a single bottle is quite enjoyable. And I am warning you, do no read what is following the vertical bars ok, so you are still reading, you are a rebel, I like you already, let’s hang out.

50 cl bottle.allanbowers (93) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2013
Originally rated on 20101222.
Pours murky amber color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, toffee, toast and bready malts. Flavor of malts, caramel, ripe fruits and licorice notes.
Pours jet black with not a lot of head.
Despite the 7.5% strength this is quite a light beer. This isnt the maltiest stout that I have ever drank.
Still pretty good. Not the most exciting beer, though still head and shoulders above the standard.

500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small to average, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, tan head. Smokey aroma reminds of barbecue, cautious hints of dry fruit parings. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet dark malty, has an explicit smoke note, hints of dark chocolate and dark fruit, plum, blackcurrant; lively carbonation.
