Shared a 66 cl bottle. A very dark and bitter brown ale, or maybe more appropriately India Brown Ale. Flavours are quite porter like with loads of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee ending in a long, dry bitter finish (amarillo hops). As madsberg puts it, this is »one hoppy motherfucker of a Brown Ale.« petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
This is really something, so stay tuned!
This is the most perfect brown ale I have tasted so far (not rated... I’m a little lazy @r rating....)
It has this perfect, malty and caramelish taste, upon which the two hopifilians has created the most enticing taste of roasted malt and hops. There isn’t much to say, really. This beer is a must. Just do it (Swoosh ;-)) cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2006
Bottle. Rich and creamy like a barista-made coffee with thick foam, just like the initial burst of aroma promised. Lots of that coffee and chocolate notes crossing over into hard burned malts that tingle your buds in concert with the high hop levels. Sits very pretty in the glass too with its strinkingly dense, dark brown hues. Foam goes yonder before long, leaving little lacing. One thing I like above all else is the fact that the Mikkeller guys brew beers of character and of incredible variety -- in this, almost no one can touch them on DK turf. MIkkeller is looking better all the time and I just wonder when we will see their wares at gourmet restaurant tables. When including the X brews, their portfolio should be whetting the appetite of sommeliers everywhere. madsberg (11773) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber coloured. Unclear. Dense brown head. Herbal, sweet, chocolatish, caramelly and full of brown sugar in the aroma. Flavour has coffeenotes, light chocosweetness and is heavily hopped. Brown sugar and roast is present. Medium to full bodied. .Ends on a heavy bitter. One hoppy motherfucker of a Brown Ale.

(Bottle 66 cl) Pours a clear, orangey brown with a yellowish head. Aroma of roasted malt and citrusy aroma hops. Medium-bodied with roasted, malty notes and some coffee. Bbut otherwise completely dominated by distinct aroma hops also leaving a solid dose of bitterness. Probably the hoppiest Brown Ale I’ve ever had - in reality an India Brown Ale? 110806
