On tap pour brown, hazy, light khaki head. Decent amount of toasted malt and caramel malt. Slight sweetness. Light citrus. Medium body. Palme (4824) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2017
0.355l can. Definitely a brown one in color, little cloudy and a tall almost fluffy but somewhat fading beige head that leaves minimal of lacings. Smells mild chocolaty. Tones of nuts, dark berries and some darker types of malts. Nice and not too extreme aroma. It has a somewhat high carbonation level wrapped in a mild oily texture. Tastes quite good. Again it’s mild chocolaty with a nice dark caramel sweetness. The high carbonation is kinda disturbing the flavors a tad perhaps. There’s hints of truffles, marzipan and red berries in the finish. All in all its definitely a little dull, but drinks nice enough. 24.06.2015 Yves (3134) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2016

Tap @ Pump House, Fairbanks. Dark auburn with thin head. Smells lightly sweet, almost chocolatey. Taste has some sourdough and a nice light bitter finish. It is a little cold, probably even better warmer.

12 oz can pours a murky brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma is coffee and bread. Taste is coffee and chocolate with hints of caramel, toast and yeast. Smooth finish. All around great brown ale. Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
~Rich malty aroma of chocolate bread, caramel, toffee, pecan pie.
~Pours a dark brown with reddish tent, small lasting creamy light tan head.
~Roast in flavor with, bread and caramel, light cocoa, earthy, woody hop character.
~Medium full bodied, medium low CO2, slight astringency, lingering roast bitter finish.
~The aroma is great! Some of the great of aroma is lost in the flavor though. The woody flavor lasts too long and kind of ruins some of the malty nuances that I like. Probably go great with food. Smoked ribs, pulled pork.
