Pours a dark brown with a thin fizzy tan head. Aroma is nutty with hints of spices and chocolate. Flavor is malty and sweet with hints of raisins mixed in with chocolate and caramel. Is thin on the palate with a creamy dry finish. Very tasty and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Mostly roasty-toasty dark malts, a little molasses, some fruity hops. Not terribly complex.
Appearance: A good-looking brunette, this one. Very, very dark cola/root beer-esque ruby-brown with a bumpy brownish-beige head. This beer has class.
Flavor: Mmm... nice roasted malt character. A little coffee, a little chocolate, and a lot of tannins, kind of like an oversteeped mug of orange spice black tea. Alcohol is quite noticeable, as is a distinct current of grape juice. Doesn’t bonk you over the head with flavor, but very tasty. Would go well with dessert.
Palate: Creamy enough, but a tad flat. I think a fuller body would enhance the overall taste quite a bit.
Overall: Goes down easy, but holds your attention. A very pleasant brew.

Sweet, sweet, sweet. Even with this beer served super cold at a pub, this beer was still like drinking something from Starbucks. There is some bitterness giving it a more complex character, but overall, not a fan.

This was a great brown ale... one of the best in my book. It was strong and tasty with just enough of a smooth sweet finish. Loved it!

Among my favorite browns! Definite, prominent chocolatey tones. Medium body and a beautiful chocolate color.

Pours a dark brown colour with a medium off-white head. Aromas of fresh nuts and malt. Taste is slightly nutty, malty, and has a lightly hoppy short finish. A good sessional brown ale.

The aroma and appearance are average for a brown ale. The flavor is complex, though not necessarilly in a good way. I think perhaps the flavors just don’t wuite my palate well. I find that it warms quickly, and when it does all I get is a mish-mash of toasted flavors. Just average.
