fiulijn (18057) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
Draught at the pub, Meadowlark location
Brown color. Light aroma. It has some nice caramel flavor with a touch of darker malt, residual sweetness to make it easier to swallow. Not very bitter.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
[803-20071102] Tap @ Brewsters (Calgary, AB). Aroma has a bit of malt roast coffee. Clear, dark dark amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Flat alcoholic grains (without the bite) flavour has a bit of coffee and soap. Medium-full body. Nice blend but for the soap.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2015 2015-06-02. Crisp brown body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma of toasty malt. Flavour is a classic toasty malty brown ale profile up front, but finishes with oddly muddled and bitter mix. Dry sharp roast/toast comes out in the aftertaste. It’s not unpleasant but it’s abrupt and not entirely to my taste. Average bodied palate feels a touch light for the beer, moderate carbonation. 7/3-4/6/3/13On tap at Brewsters, Edmonton.

2007-11-XX. Dark brown mahogany body with a small tan head. (3+) Malty flavour with roasty malt accents and occasional nutty hints. Similar aroma is muted, but dominated by the mild roast that characterizes the flavour. Slightly fuller than average palate suits the beer nicely. (3+) Solid brown ale. 6+/3+/7/3+/13-14+ Draft at the brewpub, Calgary.

Not a bad beer. If the beer could lose points for crappy service at the pub then the beer would get a zero. Drinkable, but the wheat is the best beer at Brewster’s

Braudog (6195) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Draft pint at the 11th Ave brewpub downtown. Rich malty aroma on this black-brown brew. A bit chalky, but this is a nice toasy, roasted-malt beer. Sweet, almost smoky, mostly sweet. Moderate body. OK. (#2877, 5/13/2007)

Lubiere (12360) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
Another dark red copper ale with a thin white head. A sweet caramel aroma, loads of diacetyl, and medicinal. In mouth, a sweet nutty malt, again, nasty diacetyls developping. Medicore. At Oliver Square, Feb. 2007.

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2007
Dark brown, tastes eerily like the Shaughnessy Stout. Smokey and chocolately. A little watery, but nothing too serious. Not very bitter, but perfectly drinkable.

DuffMan (8917) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2007
Deep amber brown, moderate tan head. Rich aromas of breadcrust, coffee, with a little smokiness. Surprisingly fruity up front, then lots of roasted toffee malt with some nuttiness. I thought this was excellent.
