3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep brown, almost black color ale with an average size foamy head with good retention and limited lacing. Aroma of deep caramel malt with some toffee notes. Taste is also dominated by some deep caramel malt with some toffee notes and some minimal hops presence. Body is bit too thin with good carbonation. Loads of character for style that can be often quite bland.

Mahogany. Light brown head. Rich malty brown ale aroma. One of Bushwakker’s best aromas. Dark roasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavour. Almost porter like. Creamy palate fits the chocolate flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild chocolate, some toasted malts and a touch of caramel in the nose. Clear deep brown body with a low off white head that recedes to cover with nice lacing. Lightly fruity notes complement the nutty malt forward flavour along with the undertone of chocolate. Decent bitterness and perhaps a touch of roast at the death. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub before the Als/Riders game.

(Draught) 5 oz sampler tasted at the brewpub on December 29, 2005, for $1.50. Pours a lasting creamy beige head with a deep red body. The nose was that of an oily caramel and toasted malt. The flavour had an added touch of scotch to the taste. A good and balanced beer!

650ml bottle purchased from the brewpub pours a dark brown color with 2 fingers of light tan head which leaves a healthy lacing on the glass. Aromas are of light roasted malts with hints of fruit and chocolate. Taste is light roasty malt bitterness with hints of fruit and chocolate and mild hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is my favorite from this brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first ever first rating! An excellent brown ale. Not too much going on in the aroma, poured an off white head that quickly dissipated. Dark brown body. Great malt character to the initial flavour, hints of chocolate and caramel, great balance. Slightly bitter finish, gets better as it warms. My only complaint would be that it is a little thin. Otherwise, a great tasting brown ale. Thanks Rudge75.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany, average sized bubbly medium tan head that leaves lots of splotchy lacing. The aroma is quite toasty and pleasant, sweet caramel, hint of spice, faint hop. Straight forward aroma. This is a pretty tasty brew with moderate soft roast and caramel balanced well, weak fruity something, mild dull coffee and I’m having a hell of a time placing the hops and I think it may be a very faint pine. Either way, the hop bitterness works well. Zippy. Calming mouth feel, carbonation might be a touch high. Long but mild bitter finish with roastiness that follows. A very tasty beer.

I love this bar, but the only notes I have are the numbers, which is unfortunate....
