On-tap at Nørrebro Bryghus; served in Nørrebro Bryghus glass with stem.
Deep reddish-brown color, slight off-white head. Impressive, delicate aroma with lively fruitiness - very fresh and inviting. Taste is nutty and fruity. The finish could be more assertive, otherwise a very pleasant and drinkable brown ale.
Served too cold.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark leathery brown colour. Froths over when opened, head settles out before long into a bubbly foam on top. Lace is OK but nothing great. Looks alright.

Smells chocolatey and pleasant. Hint of leather on there with some honey, espresso coffee and peppery spirits. Sweet, mostly roasty. Slips slightly into an odd sourness, but decent, appealing aroma overall.

Taste is brown-ale-esque. Pleasant roasty notes with dark chocolate, coffee sponge and some peppery spice. Maybe a touch of spruce and a mild citrus character that sort of waters down the roastiness a bit. Late palate is quite mild and a little watery, but the upfront flavours are pleasant enough to make you go for another sip, and another.

Bit thin, watery, yeah not a lot of texture. Late mouthfeel has a pleasant dryness but otherwise it's pretty lame.

Pretty typical brown ale. Nice flavours, nothing overwhelmingly big about it. To style. Could drink it, though.

This brew pours a mahogany hue with a cherry tinge withn nice carbonation that leaves behind a fast vanishing two finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is sherry,chocolate,roasted nuts and dark berries,the mouthfeel is very light bodied for my liking and a tad watery with tastes of milky chocolate,cherries,chestnuts and finished with a hit of dark berries and overall i was expecting alot more and wouldnt buy this one again cheers.

Pours dark brown with a large, creamy head.
Nose shows lots of dark malt, with hints of coffee and chocolate.
Likewise with the flavours, lots of coffee and cocoa, but quickly fading to timid caramel and bready malt, which is a bit off-putting.
Mouthfeel is watery, only making that weak malt seem worse.
