bunget (552) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
500ml bottle. Deep clear copper-brown body, small beige head, decent retention. Aroma of caramel, coffee, toasted rye bread, floral hops, plums. Taste of good amount of roasted malt, floral hops, caramel, croutons, roasted pecans. Interesting aftertaste on the tip of the tongue, sort of a bitter numbness.

500ml botttle. Big roast aroma followed by coffee, earthy sod, caramel. Pours Dr. Pepper-coloured minus the fiz. Hearty and substantial, full-bodied, well-balanced, tangy/hoppy finish. Delicious and lacking any significant flaws. An excellent surprise courtesy of a brewery I hadnít heard of.

kevinsenn (1076) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Surprising new 500mL bottle at LCBO. Pours a clear ruby/brown, with a thin beige head. Creamy roasty aroma with some English hops. Rich sweet taste - creamy, roasty, and nutty - with a moderate lingering bitterness. Good body, light carbonation. A really solid beer.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
500mL bottle from my likcboe. Pours a dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Aroma is nice, highlighted by roasted caramalts, toffee, and hint of coffee. Flavour has the same pleasant malty character that features in the aroma, with a mildly bitter roasty finish. Lighter body with moderate carbonation. Over-all pretty sweet but not in a cloying way. Not very complex but that definitely was not the intention, so I think this is very good for what it is. If I were a Red Coat in the early 19th century, Iíd be pretty happy to throw back my daily rations of two pints of this decent beer.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle, LCBO. Murky dark brown pour, very little head, bubbly thin what is there. Roast, coffee, molasses, nuttiness from a very intriguing aroma. Taste - classic sweet nut brown flavour up front over a watery thin to medium body (which suits the style here actually). Large roast and nut brown sweetness in linger - really nice. A really nice throw back brown ale / almost old school English porter; what a lovely surprise. I will buy more of this one.

solidfunk (4007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Holy hell, I gotta give it to these guys for finally putting a good one through. Pours kind of reddish brown, quickly dead head. Pretty high carbonation. Smells of roast malt, tastes smoked, hoppy and even some coffee dark. A nice, powerful musk hangs around in the air inside my throat for a protracted time after a sip. Bottle.

dfearnley (969) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
500mL bottle to wine glass Notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. The colour is a deep reddish brown that comes with a slight tan head. Slightly sour at first, then that fades as a coffee/toasted malt flavour takes over and then to a long lasting bitterness on the back of the tongue. Brewing with 100% local ingredients is a great idea for a historic beer too.
