This is a darker offering from Black Oak. Rich smooth taste, slightly roasty and chocolaty. It’s a bit less hopped, but still has a fantastic balance with the malt.

Bottle - Hazelnut and caramel with some toasted notes. Clear dark brown with a light beige head. Toasted malts and hazelnut, finishes with a nice sweetness. Not an exciting style but a good example.

On cask. Dark mahogney colored pour with small off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and nuts. Taste of roasted malts, toffee, slight chocolate, slightly nutty and very faint hop finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lower carbonation, nicely balanced, good brown ale!

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
650 mL bottle. Pours walnut with a thick lacy head of off white. Mild nut and caramel aromas, a hint of butteriness, cocoa and black tea. Actually quite dry, subtle sweetness and only a hint of hop. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. A nice session beer.

Purchased at LCBO. Some good caramel and nutty flavour. The taste isn’t to strong but a very nice session beer. I would buy again.

sudomorph (1079) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear, dark caramel with a one finger, frothy, off white head that clings to the glass. Aroma has notes of bread and caramel with slight hints of fruits, roasted malts, and nuts. Taste is balanced and smooth with a mild roastyness and a hint of hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly creamy texture that lends itself well to the roasted flavours. Overall tasty and very drinkable. I could see this being a go to, everyday darker beer. Cheers!

Canmoore (405) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a very deep amber, almost like maple syrup. A nice bubbly head, and great lacing. Aroma notes include warm notes of vanilla, nuts, caramel, roasted malts, toffee, and a hint of cinnamon. The palate is very smooth and well rounded, with a big upfront blast of smoked malts, and caramels. Very smooth beer, as the palate develops notes of nuts, more smoke, pepper, and a slight bitter finish. This is a very excellent brown ale!!
