4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very tasty beer, quite complex yet drinkable. Not a good example of the Northern English Brown style - ratings would be much lower compared to the BJCP style guidelines. a: heavy cherry notes in the aroma, with tint of caramel. Light butterscotch aroma (diacetyl). Subtle hoppy aroma (english variety - fuggles?). a: poured light brown, crystal clear. Poured with solid, off-white head with good retention. t: Light cherry notes shine through, especially at the finish. Very sweet up front, but dries out well to leave a nice dry finish, appropriate for style. Pleasant, dynamic journey. Little hop character. p: medium-light body, moderate carb. Not astringent at all. o: very interesting beer, complex flavors and aroma make for a nice drinking experience. Would like to see a bit more hop character shine through.

Undated imperial pint > pint glass vinivini (3075) - Gomel, BELARUS - SEP 15, 2017
A: Clear mahogany or tea color with a short tan head that falls to a stubborn film.
S: Sweet chocolate, a little stone fruit or fig, dark bread and faint alcohol.
T: Unsweetened Chocolate and bitter hops blend nicely with bitterness lingering. A hint of tart cherry and hazelnut.
M: Light and crisply carbonated. Slight resin on an otherwise fairly dry finish.
O: Haven't had this in years and it's nice to revisit. Old standby still recommended.
Bottle. Clear chestnut brown. Moderate off-white head. The nose is caramel, toffee, minor nuts, cocoa. Light body. Fairly dry tasting. Really nutty here. Rich toffee and caramel. Flavourful. Lightly hoppy ending. Floral. It's OK because of the entire dryness. A very pleasant brew. Benters (98) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Pours a clear, dark amber/mahogany colour with average carbonation. Aroma is earthy, lightly roasted malts, slight nuttiness and some caramel. Taste is sweet, nuttiness shines through along with some caramel and fruitiness. Well balanced with slight hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied, very enjoyable beer. Paired really well with Thai Red Chicken Curry - robust enough flavours to stand up to the dish; carbonation and hop bitterness help to cut through the spice and cleanse the palate whilst malty sweetness blends together with sweetness and spices in the dish to make a great match!

355 ml bottle. Med gashåndtag. Dark amber colour with a medium sized lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, nuts, fruits, candid sugar and a lightly toasted note. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly drying with caramel malts and fruits. Liquorice. A nice classical Brown Ale. kaserov (1024) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2017
Color marrón, translúcido y rojizo si le da la luz, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (pequeñas burbujas y buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma a malta tostada, caramelo, cacao, frutos secos, reminiscencias herbals. En boca mucho caramelo y menos cacao, azúcar, algo de avellana y nuez. El sabor va ganando profundidad a medida que uno va bebiendo. Mucho fruto seco en postgusto. Brown Ale de manual.
