3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!!

Bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a very clear dark brown with a small off white head. Nose is roasted malts and brown sugar with some nuts. Taste is quite sweet with malts and nuts dominant and a hint of molasses and honey. Mouth is medium slick with soft carbonation. Finish is quite dry but not bitter.

Not quite as good as the robust porter, but good nonetheless. More caramel and nuttiness than I expected.

clear brown colour with little head and no lace. muted aroma but there is some roast, malt and a hint of nuttyness. light brew having almost no flavour profile other than a hint of bitterness and some roast. wow boring brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some fine lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and light roasted grains with hint of citrus. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness with a touch of citrus. Light to medium bodied with a light carbonation as well. A typical brew for the style with nothing really special.

Pours a smooth dark brown, beautiful chocolate and roasted malt aroma and flavor, very nice mouthfeel, very cohesive flavors. One of the best brown ales i’ve tried.
