Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2012
1L squealer, pours cola brown with a small off white head and coca on the nose with a slight citrus/spice. Get the biscuity coca coming out in the flavour also. This isnt a stand out brown ale for me, pretty standard.

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - MAR 6, 2010
Bottle, 50cl, from ICA, Oslo. Batch 431 (BB 10.6.2011). Deep reddish brown colour, clear (but yeast sediments when bottle is near empty) . Two-inch light beige head reducing to a fine film. Dry, roasted malt aroma with a bit over-the-top spiciness (cloves, nutmeg, coffee). Light/medium body, watery. Fruity-bitter aftertaste.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2008
The color was deep amber. The head was thin, fizzy, and off-white. The aroma was coffee, some spice, and sweet malt. The flavor was coffee, sweet malt, and some spice. The palate was smooth. The finish was clean.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

3.3
marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Dark reddish brown color with tan head. Roasted malty flavors and aroma. Light bitter finish that dries out a bit. Flavor is dominated by the roasted flavors of the malt, which are good. Mild palate, even with a good finish. Good.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours medium dark brown, chestnut color. Head dissipates rather swiftly. Nose is fairly weak for some reason. Palate is rather surprising, a whop in your face after a dissappointing nose. Big roasty flavors with a suggestion of brown sugar are present. Finish is medium to short. Makes a nice refreshing beer during the warm months when you’re not in the mood for a heavy winter warmer, but still would like to reach for the darker side of things.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2004
Bottle at Copenhagen Beermarathon 2004: Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is slightly nutty/roasted with a hint of hops. Taste is well balanced, a litle on the dry side, Roasted malt and hops.

3.8
ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle at Novare Res. Pours a lovely brown with reddish clear body. Well the bottle was gone in like 5 minutes so they’re doing something right! Supremely drinkable, i’d wager this would be a killer session beer. Aroma is roasted malt, sweet brown sugar, and caramel. Flavors are very comparible. Sticky sweetness at first, with a nice mild finish. One of the best unflavored browns i can remember having!

Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Huge thanks to jayg for sharing this one with all of us at the Orlando gathering.

Pours a brown body with ruby highlights. Off white head with medium lacing. Aromas of nuts, sweet malts, dough, roast notes. Flavor is very nutty and sweet, with a nice malt background. Finish is medium lenght and sweet, thin palate but not watery. A nice brown ale, and one I enjoyed more than their IPA.
