3.1
Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark ruby red colour, clear and pretty indeed. Very small head and almost no carbonation - almost English cask appearance. Huge sediment though. A slight indefinable and not completely pleasant nose - roasted somehow. Very malty flavours, roasted malt - light sweetish, soft and pleasant mouthfeel. An incredibly flavourful beer for it’s rather small body. 110705

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Hazy brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and nutty. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and light bitter finish. 081014

Koelschtrinker (22078) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süffiger und herber Malzantrunk. Das Malz wird kräftiger, die Herbe wandelt sich in Bitterkeit. Das Hauptaroma verschiebt sich vom Malz zur trockenen Bitterkeit. Wenig fruchtig. Zum Ende trocken malzig, die Bitterkeit ist fast schon etwas säuerlich. Bekömmlich! 9/9/8/9/11/8

fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Clean dark amber color. Very nice aroma, with some malt, roasted malt and hop. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with roasted malt, malt and caramel, plus a touch of rye. Pretty good among the Brown Ales. Ends too dry and somehow minty.

3.4
saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 7, 2007
Bottle. Nice big head with good duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are roast malt, chocolate and notes of coffee.

3.6
harrisoni (19553) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Dark brown with thin beige head. Choc malt and hop. I quite like it. Fairly simple choc malt/hoppy beer. Hop finish is tasty. Drinkable.

3.5
Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
Reddish-brown colour. Very nutty aroma. Flavour is nutty, toasty, with some minerals. Relatively full body for the style.

3.2
rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2005
Hazy amber color with some of the hugest yeastparticles I ever have seen in a beer. Coffee and chocolate aroma, some what salty and fruity. Malty flavor with some vanilla, fruity notes, a bit salty biut still mild. Maybe a little thin.

3.3

3.1
TBone (18561) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled
Dark nut brown, small creamy off-white head. Smokey, roasted, chocolaty nose. Roasted, a bit watery, chocolaty, not very brown ale -like, more like some of the Nögne Ö’s stouts.
