Pours a nice caramel with a beautiful head. First taste is a strong carbonation but after a few minutes, the taste blossoms with a great, drinkable sweet taste and texture.

malvrich (342) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Undated imperial pint > pint glass 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.

vinivini (2850) - Gomel, BELARUS - SEP 15, 2017
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.

4.2
Benters (52) - 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!

12oz bottle at home. Clear medium brown with a frothy off-white head. Caramel, nuts, cocoa, wood, dark fruit, dark bready malt. Medium-light body. Lingering nutty, mildly malty finish. Don't drink this too cold.

Bill Becker (1370) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Clear light brown red, 2 fingers of foam, off white foam. Very nutty aromas with caramel and butterscotch, sweet overall. Nutty taste, some butterscotch, burnt malt, medium bitterness in the finish. Nice end reliable.

3.5
brnandersen (4072) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2017
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.

3.8
kaserov (928) - 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.

k_gadeberg (169) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2017
On bottle @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood Pours hazy brown with small amount of foam. Boring and watery, malty, woody aftertaste
