Ruby red brown with a fizzy white head. Malty aroma, grapes, and red wine notes. Roasty, malty taste with biscuit and grape notes. Quite good. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2007
The pour reveals a clear brown body with a creamy light tan head that dissipates slowly, leaving a complete cover upon the glass. Nose has a black walnut like sweetness, hints of caramel and hops, malt earthiness also noted, quite clean and refreshing. Start has a perfect malt presence, sweet with a modicum of bittering hops at the back, medium in feel. Finish has a masterful acidity, the hops pleasantly spicy, sweet and tart, dry aftertaste, a really nice representative to the style. AdamLawsonS (26) - - MAR 9, 2012
Dark brown, light brown head. Smells malty spicy and chocolatey. Tastes light and refreshing for a brown ale with a little tartness and chocolate. Carbonation makes taste pop all over mouth, ace. AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2013
This one has a chocolate cherry aroma and is an amber color with an off-white head. The flavor is a coffee with slight bitter cherry finish. it flows across the palate with a very vesperous (high carbonation) feeling. Overall another fine beer from Nøgne ø. jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2014

Appearance: Pours a murky brown.
Aroma: Aroma of toffee.
Taste: Light bitterness, lightly toffee/nutty.
Palate:Light medium body, light aftertaste.
Summary: First off, thanks Dave. This beer is really exceptional. At 4.5, it has all the flavor of other Brown ales. If this came in smaller bottles, I’d always have it around.
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 A very porter like brown ale. Rich at first then lays off. A slight touch of sourness. Good Stuff. Serving: Bottle erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2011
Dark brown with a light brown solid bubbly head. Notes of pine cones, milk chocolate, toasted wholewheat bread and dusty basements. Light sticky body but very liquid at the same time. Darker, roasted flavours dominate the beginning while the end is a more straightforward sweet malty taste. Definitely nice for the style and my older bottle has hold up great. I see how ’pub grub’ would go nice with it, but light ripened cheeses and hearthy home cooked stews and mashes should work even better I’d think.

50 cl bottle. Batch 404 Brygget 080109 BB 080111 - enjoyed 091211. Color is dark brown, head (foam comes out of the bottle, not really gushing but still) is beige, creamy, firm, sticky (good lace). Aroma’s: Heavy roast, ash, dark coffee, malty sweet, a bit red fruit/berries. Flavor is roasted-bitterish, like coffee. Light body. Finishes dry, with roast and rather bitter. Excellent still after three years. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 5, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Brown coloured with beige creamy head. Aroma is grainy and roasty. Bit of brown bread and light spice. Taste is a bit of ginger, bready malts, bit of cream and some oats. Quite smooth but with a spicy prickle. Very easy to drink! Very nice. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JUN 7, 2013
50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark amber brown with a lot of off-white head. Aroma is chocolate and cherries. Flavor is the same with notes of coffee. Highly carbonated. Finishes bitter with cherry nuances. Good brew.
