A brown ale so rich, it’s hardly classifiable as brown. It’s born of copious amounts of hearty pale ale malt, and several specialty selections which make it a dark, rich and delicious masterpiece. Very light hop additions allow the malty sweetness and flavor complexity to be most protuberant. A beer so user friendly, we dub this the “gateway” beer.

    Grand brown, teeters on the brink of the porter realm. Cocoa and molasses with a creamy dark fruitiness. Light brown color, medium head and good lacing. Medium bodied and chewy.

    12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is sweet roasted malts and chocolate with some molasses.

    The flavor is very sweet and sugary malts, molasses, nutty chocolates and some slightly tart fruitiness. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery.

    Overall, too sweet and thin. An OK brown.

    355 ml bottle, shared with OleR at Olympen, Oslo. Mahogany colour, moderate beige head. Strong aroma of dark münchener and caramel malts. Sourish notes of rye bread and over-ripe fruits / berries. Sourish flavour of bread dough and rye bread with caramel. Low bitterness. Not really my cup of tea.

    Pours a rich, warm, dark brown with an average light tan head. Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of molasses and is somewhat sweet. Lip-smacking flavor is malty with a strong molasses component, and sweet without being cloying. Texture is smooth and lightly fizzy.

    This was my first attempt at this breweries beers, if poured a nice color, foam head quickly dissipates, taste was ok. I thought was really thin bodied, but drinkable ( if your a BMC fan,bud-milller-coors) the price was decent though. I have tasted much better ( bells for example) but will still try there other samplings if i get the chance.
