On tap at Alley Kat, pours a clear amber brown with a large off-white head. Nose brings out bready malts and light toasted notes. Flavour is pleasant, with toasted bready malt and light toasted dry caramel. Very well-balanced and drinkable. Very good.

Toasted almond and malty smell. Exceptionally off white small head. Malty with hints of nut, chocolate and coffee. Decent blend, adequate amber.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Beer Brothers. Pours clear brown, average head, good lacing. Smells and tastes more like a mild chocolate porter. Toffee, chocolate dominate. Nice beer but more than a brown ale in flavour.

Bottle to glass
Bought for a BBQ but this got left over. Time to rate it.
Sweet apply, malt initially, followed by some dark molasses, toast, and chestnut. The colour is a dark reddish amber and it’s got a thin mottled and creamy head. Taste is very malty, with a touch of dark chocolate, grain, and something bittersweet, perhaps molasses. There’s a touch of bitterness and skunk at the end, but overall, not bad.

Aroma is a roastiness with some nut notes. Taste is a well balanced malt / hop character. Sweet malts finish smoothly and the hops are not too over powering. Appearance is aclear amber with a pearl head that retains fairly
