Classic British style dark ale. Five malt types and three different hops combine to develope this smokey nut-like flavor.

[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 (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Dark brown mahogany body with a small tan head. (3+) Malty flavour with roasty malt accents and occassional 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+

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 (5574) - Hampton, 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 (9731) - 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 (6439) - 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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2006
Nutty and biscuity malts in the aroma. Clear brown body is topped by a low, off white head that recedes to a partial cover with some sudsy lacing. Nutty and biscuity malts with some chocolate and a hint of roast. Light medium body with moderate carbonation. Bottle sampled with BeerPrince, CapFlu, frink and Oakes.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2006
Brown colour with a thin head. Caramel and toffee nose with some light smokiness. Caramel, toffee flavours with some smoke in the reto-nasal.Yep. That’s a brown ale.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2006
Darker brown with minimal head. Aroma is nutty with some roasted malts. A slight choclate taste and some nuts with a touch of caramel sweetness. Quite average.
