Sampled from a 33cl bottle. Brown with some light coming through and a small head of large bubbles. Aroma has black pepper, nuts, bread and a hint of prunes. Flavor is smooth with a varied blend of raisins, prunes, biscuits, black pepper and plums. Body is a bit thin with a moderately high carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer but not especially flavorful or adventurous. But I enjoy it.

Pours a clear reddish-brown color with a thick, rocky biege head; sticky streaks of lacing. Light, roasted grain nose, some banana-like esters; nuts. Sweet malt flavors; vanilla; caramelized sugars; subdued bitter finish. Medium-bodied, somewhat soft with carbonation; kind of a thick, syrupy feel.

A flavorful brown ale that comes across a little heavy yet packed with lots of great malt flavors. Hop bitterness and aroma are hard to detect, but rich malt flavors abound.
