Dartagnan (13) - Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Definitely one of the best brews the pub has on tap. Smooth and crisp Strong Ale. Everything you’d expect from a Strong Ale.

Ferris (7058) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Draft - Sweet caramel and toffee. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Orange caramel and a bit boozy with syrupy notes.

mcberko (8725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Wet Dog Cafe / Astoria Brewing, pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out a good mix of caramel malts and resinous hops. Flavour is on the maltier side of things, with woody caramel malts upfront, backed by a nice resinous hop potency. Well-balanced, robust and without any harsh edges. Nice stuff.

BillKismet (3419) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Brassy-bronze, caramel head, a beautiful pour. Rye, caramel malt, and grain all intermingle, infusing the bouquet with a lovely, natural sweetness. On the palate this one manages a pleasing mix between bitter and sweet with those attributes playing off of a grainy malt backbone. The finish leans toward bitter mettallic.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Clear otange red color with pillowy off white lacing. Medium aroma that is slightly musky. Not overly sweet like some strong ales can be.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 25, 2011
On tap @ Astoria Brewing Co. Deep amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and light pine. Flavor is all malt, sweet and caramel with some dark fruit. Medium body with mild carbonation and a syrupy mouth feel. Not bad but a bit on the sweet side for my palate.

dchmela (2785) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Light copper pour. Toffee and cherry like aroma. Thick malty body with a lingering hop bitterness in the taste. Good stuff.

4 oz. Taster @ Wet Dog Cafe April, 12th 2010. 6.5% ABV. 40 IBU’s. Rich lacy off white head. Slightly cloudy dark toffee amber color. Mild hop mild fruit malty front. Doughy mellow sweet malty toffee caramel body. Mellow crusty malty mild hop end. Rich bland English Amber Ale. English Old Ale Style. Clean and Well Made. (3.25 / 5.0)

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Clear copper amber, average white head. Toasty malts with hints of chocolate in the aroma, some sponge toffee in the flavour. Medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Not very memorable really.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a hazy reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Stringy lacing. Malty aroma with some booze coming through. Medium, somewhat syrupy body with flavors of roasted malt, ripe fruit and hops. Alcohol in the background as well. The finish is rich and fruity with a lingering malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
