A little nutty, caramel, and grain aroma. Some almond. Flavor is smooth, a little roasty, and slightly sweet closer to the finish. The nuttiness comes through again here. Pretty nice. Pretty drinkable. The alcohol and bigger presence work well for this style of beer. Fin (10541) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from Dodgy Deli, Cowley Road, October 2011 consumed 1st December 2011 at home Dark brown in colour with a tan head. Decent malty beer, some cocoa and chocolate flavours but also a little tangy fruit, Nice. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4 Strykzone (7360) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle from TWCP. Almost black and thick looking with a tan head. Tons of malt in the nose with dark fruit, molasses, and cocoa. The flavor mimics that. The malt is huge here but the flavor is not quite as complex as the nose. Cocoa and toasted notes with softer fruit. Late some alcohol comes through but it is not over done. Bitterness is minimal. Preferring sweet and malty beers, this one is in my wheelhouse. BeerSkull (1373) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Aroma of roasted malt and licorice with lovely fresh hop notes. Good taste of roasted malt, salt licorice, wheat and hops. The aftertaste is slightly dry. Really nice and tasty beer. tiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011

Kan väl nästan kallas för brown IPA. Mörkt maghognyfärgad med kompakt lågt skum. Stor men rund och snäll blommig humledoft. Stor rund kropp med mjölkchoklad, höstlöv och färskt trä i kombination med en fruktig och blommig humle, måttlig men väl markerad beska och lång eftersmak. Finstämt, välbalanserat, smakrikt som vanligt av Nögne. SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2011

Bottle. Pours Brown with a small brown head. Smells smoky malty and tastes very smoky with a similar finish. ABS (1069) - Stokke, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
Pours dark brown. Lots of slightly tan head. Lightly roasted malt nose, some alcohol and some red fruit. Roasted malt, but not burnt, red fruit and alcohol aroma. Very good, but a bit to much alcohol when it gets to warm (ie. the bottom of the glass). olsvammel (7225) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a dark brown-black liquid with a reddish tint. Also a big light brown head. Smell is deep with with chocolate, some nuts and also a hint of coffee. Is that some grassy hops in the background? Rich taste of coffee, dark bread and chocolate. Very musty and nice. Also thick body and smooth mouth feel with a low to average amount of carbonation. A very nice beer.
