”Do you have any American brown ale?” I asked the bartender at Stockholm pub Oliver Twist. “No”, he replied, “but this one comes pretty close. It is a brown porter with some interesting hops.”

The colour is deep brown-red (like a Coke). The low beige foam leaves some lacing.

The rather mild smell is roasted/toasted with notes of black coffee, apples, liquorice, and a light fresh bitterness.

The taste is roasted with smoky flavours of grilled beef, espresso, roast beef and cookies. The body is medium; the aftertaste is milder than I had expected with flavours of rye bread, roast beet and a clean bitter note.

The carbonation is quite strong with medium sized bubbles; maybe it is a little bit too strong? The over all mouthfell is dry.

An interesting and refreshing variation of the porter style.
