3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before March 2013. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, roast, light coffee, toffee, herbal, and light dark fruits. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, nuttiness, toffee, roast, light coffee, and light herbal spiciness. Slight herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toffee, toast, nuttiness, and light herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance, complexity, and robustness; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale! Nicely robust and full of balanced flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Has a pleasant subtle chocolate malt and spice aroma. Dark brown body with a mahogany like finish. Thin off-white bubbled head. Thin smooth feel. Light smooth chocolate malt with a hint of spice to balance it out. Has toffee tone to it also.

Quite nice brew. Lovely roasted background, dark choco, caramel, nuts, light vanilla, nice hop kick gives some fruitiness, bit perfumy. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Nice well balanced brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep bronze amber from 12 oz with thin white head. Robust aroma of molasses, chocolate, rum/liqueur, nuts, and hint of banana. Fleeting sweetness followed by bubblegum and smooth bitter aftertaste. More than average carbonation with medium body. Beautiful aroma, average taste, good beer overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Shinning cane molasses colour. Small and sparse head with some retention and lacing. Chocolate immediately pops in the nose. Loses strength in the taste with a bit of hoppy character and some alcohol. Medium-light body with very little bitterness in the finish. Good carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une bonne bière ambrée qui tire sur une inspiration belge mais les notes de caramel et l’arrière bouche de fruits exotique nous rappelle sa couleur américaine. Un gout de malt prononcé. Un couleur presque rouge.
