Bottle. Dark brown color with a nice lightly brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and some spicy hops. Chocolate, coffee, caramel and lots of hops in the flavor. yespr (48094) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2007
66 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/amber with a light brown and dense head. The foam is leaving nice lacework on the glass as the glass is being emptied. Fruity and slight malty aroma with a minor woody note. Flavour starts fruity from the hops before the smooth chocolate malt takes over. Soon after this a more roasted malt profile turns up and way is given to a slight coffee note. Not much time is granted before a strong bitterness is breaking the malt flavours. A nice blend of malt and hops keeps lingering into the rather dry finish. Ungstrup (38587) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2006
[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 6900] A deep red beer with a huge bubbly brown head. The aroma is roasted combined with notes of chocolate, and some citrusy hop notes - I find the roastyness somewhat like toasted bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of nuts, chocolate, roasted bread, something like a toasted Enlish toast bread with Nutella spread on, before the hops hits, with a citrusy note, that soon turns into a very bitter end, hop bitter that is - not from the roasted malt. I like that this Brown Ale has more body than the typical specimen, but even being a hop head - I find the bitterness in the end, not suiting the style. joergen (29353) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2006

Roasted aroma with notes of oat, coffee and chocolate (the oat is a bit too dominating for my liking).
Light roasted flavour of coffee, chocolate and hops with notes of oat and flowery notes.
Dry roasted finish.
Bottle. Dark brown colour with an off-white head. Roasted malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Roasted malty flavor with hints of hops and chocolate. Malty finish with some hoppy hints and some bitterness. A nice brown ale.

Nice chocolatey ale with malt and roasted coffee. Reasonable dry bitter finish. cgarvieuk (26082) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle at home ... and my first mild disapointment from Mikkeller ... Deep red brown ... roastmalt nose .. lotsoffizz little raw alcohol ... lots and lots of bitter hop linger ... some roast coffee way too bitter for me. omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Dark brown. Some grapefruity hops up front. Very dry and very salty, notes of chocolate. The clean mouthfeel makes it a bit harsh. Lots of aromatic hops polishes trhe surface, but the malt character is a bit raw. Not my favourite Mikkeller. madmitch76 (25801) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
20th July 2008. Brown beer. Distinct chocloate tone but it jars against the very bitter hop finish. Better when it warms up a bit - doesn’t clash quite as much but these flavours are uncomfortable bed fellows.
Conscious of my comparatively low rating have since retried this beer but still fail to see why it averages 3.7.
