Nötig svag doft. Karaktäristisk maltarom med inslag av kakao.
Brun färg. Ok skum.
Tämligen söt och mycket maltig smak, lättrostad. Medelfyllig kropp och trevlig kolsyra. En bra amerikansk brun ale men ingen favorittyp. adavis234 (289) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a touch of amber and a thick tan head. Malty, nutty aroma with a bit of wood smoke. Delicious, crisp flavor reminds me of fall. A bit of citrus with some grassy, smokey, wood flavor as well. Quite good, although getting this beer out in July/August seems to be jumping the gun a bit. I will say it will likely be better for early fall than late fall (although in Columbia it will work for late fall as well as early winter). I will buy this again. mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Real nice brass-brown color, lasting tan head. Very light toasty aroma. Some sweet malts, but the hops are barely discernable in flavor or finish. A top of the mouth coating astringentcy quickly overtakes any pleasant maltiness and lasts for the finish. I’d drink it again, but not if I’m paying. brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - AUG 14, 2012
(35,5 cl bottle) Chestnut-brown colour, slightly hazy, tanned head. Aroma is roasted, with a whiff of smoke. Notes of coffee and cocoa or milk chocolate, along with wet leaves, earthy, nutty (walnuts) and leathery notes. Reminds me of not/only lightly roasted coffee beans as well. Enough hops (herbal, with hints of citrus and flowers) to balance the malts and give the beer a certain freshness and a prolonged aftertaste. Taste is medium bitter, without cloying sweetness. I like this one! Full of character, in no way less interesting than other SN beers I have tried. It seems perfectly fitting for autumn, too. Definitely raises the bar in the brown ale category for me. devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a deep, dark, red-tinted chestnut color, with a thick, foamy, sand-colored head. The aroma is a muddled combination of sweet caramel, toast, a bit of nuttiness, and a slight musty hop character. The flavor has a nutty malt profile that is reminiscent of a nice seeded wheat bread, some roasted nut flavors, and a little bit of grassy hop balance. The texture is a little light, which along with a soft carbonation helps this one to drink smoothly enough.

Dark copper (very autumn-y indeed). Have only had this from the bottle, and only a few times at that. Solid taste but not much of a presence in the mouth. jkaiser (279) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Nice brown ale. I had this a couple weeks ago. It’s label is goregous, one of sn’s best. the flavors, body and color define what fall is all about. OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
03-10-10 bouteille 2010: Brune-cuivrée, légèrement effervescente et avec une petite mousse. Aromes de noix et de céréales. Très maltée, elle est douce, légèrement sucrée et moelleuse en bouche. Offre des notes de noix et une toute petite amertume en finale. Bonne biere d’automne. Lawger (275) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost black with half a finger of light beige head that dissipates quickly. Fresh and toffee-like aroma with some chocolate, roasted malts, hay, crisp bread and some flowers in the background. Rather light on the palate with butterscotchy and lightly roasted notes. A pretty classical, decent and easy drinking brown ale without much bitterness but a decent length. Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours a dark amber with a moderate, creamy head. It has a nice malty, yeasty aroma. The taste is of dry, bitter malts. I got a slight hefe-yeast taste in the finish which detracted some, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
