Hop forward brown ale. First aroma you notice is hops, followed by a dark roast, and finally a bit of sweet. Pour is a dark transparent brown. Flavor is follows aroma, with more balance of hops and a dark toast taste, and a faintly sweet finish. Medium body. Overall an OK brown ale.

12floz bottle, BOD: 10.20.2017, $1.75 unit cost, nonic glass. Appears brown-amber in color with a thin layer of head. Toasted toffee all the way in the aroma and taste. Well executed brown ale that hits all the notes that it should without any flaws.

dandeman (1077) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2017
Bouteille de 650 ml. Du fumé, du sucre à la crème, des noisettes, du grain, de la mélasse, composent l'essentiel de l'olfactif. Brune aux reflets roux, le liquide développe un collet semi crémeux assez persistant. Une entrée de bouche assez caramélisée avec des tons de noisettes, de grain, se déclinant en une amertume sentie, mais délicate de résine. Du toffee est également senti. Un léger fumé en sourdine. Pétillante en bouche, elle est quand même rafraichissante malgré son caractère un peu trop sucrée.

hauxe (962) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2017
Pours dark brown from the bottle with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is really perfect for a brown: chocolate, roasted chestnuts, fresh warm cream, a whisp of smoke. Unfortunately the taste is not quite so good: nutty sweet and full of caramel but more sour in the finish than I prefer. Still, very pleasant though. Body is medium with a restrained carbonation. A very nice brown.

Tap. Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is earthy, chocolate, straw. Taste is earthy, chocolate, brown sugar. High carbonation, rather sweet. Works well enough.

tranzzik (69) - Sieradz, POLAND - SEP 11, 2017
355ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of coffee, dark bread and caramel. The taste is smoky, malty, bready and a bit earthy. The carbonation is medium, and the bitterness is very low. Enjoyed it, and would happily have it again.

Dark pour with really thick lacing on an off white head. Nice touch of maltiness that was balanced nicely. Enjoyed on draft at the brew pub.
