Brown. Malty, bit dark dry bready, some chocolate on nose. Med bodied, soft good bitters, some ... sort of fruits, figsy maybe, males me think of xmas cakes anyway. Clean, nice. Bit thin flavoured for a 6.5 maybe. Ok tho.
Tap at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Originally rated 17032012. Colour is brown with small head. Aromas and flavours: Chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours lightly hazy red-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Dull toasted malts in the aroma, some socks. Alright flavor though fairly bland, just some light toast, burnt plastic and hints of cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild toasted malts on the finish, faint dirt. Not terrible but overall pretty bland. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 1, 2013
courtesy of oh6gdx - very dark brown beer under a giant creamy beige foam; nice lacework; toasted malts and notes of cookies; some decent hop presence in the background; creamy palate and medium-bodied, a late and fair but slightly harsh bitterness; pretty dry hoppy and biscuity malty finish with a lingering bitterness omhper (25541) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled. Clear dark brown, huge head. Mildly lactic nose. Mid sweet with light body. Overcarbonation makes the beer spritzy and diluted. Some molasses, almost thin and metallic in the finish whixch has slight cocoa bitterness.

Pours dark brown with a white frothy head. Aroma espresso, hops. Some chocolate. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Not Bad. TET (3168) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2012
A very dark brown beer with medium, dense and beige head. Aromatic hop aromas plays main role in the aroma, grapefruits and pine forest, also nicely balanced roastiness and some chocolate; interesting and succesfull aroma. Taste is nice roasted, bready, coffee and hops are still quite dominant, pine and grapefruits. Medium- bodied, quite high carbonation, but still quite smooth to drink. Nice and fresh brown ale, Cascade gives nice livelyness. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2012

Aroma is roasted with cocoa, coffee, some fruity hops and hints of ash. Flavour has lots of coffee, some crisp hops, nuts, tobacco and ash. Reminds me of brilliant Nøgne Ø Brown Ale – this is just slightly watery, more ashy and hoppy. Good.
33 cl bottle. Batch #410. BBE 01.07.2012.
Pours dark red-brown color with a medium-sized foamy head. Aroma of dark malts, toffee notes, mild bread and nuts. Flavor of lightly roasted malts, distant ripe fruit notes, caramel, mild ashy chocolate, cocoa and some hints of toffee. Maybe a bit coffee on the background also. Lightly bitter palate with a sweetish malty body. Actually quite nice.
