Can. Rich dark brown and translucent with small creamy head that dissipates slowly. Slight chocolate aroma. Medium bodied, smooth. The right amount of hop flavour for the style. Definite dark chocolate taste. I’d have this one again for sure.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours the perfect color for a "nut brown ale". Head is very active and fizzes out quickly. Aroma of malt. Taste is straight up malt and finshes clean with slight bitter after taste. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Some nuttiness and a bit of caramel maybe to the aroma. Lots of sweetness, maybe a bit too much. Taste is along the same lines. A bit stronger with the nuts and caramel though. Still a bit too sweet.

Can from BC Liquor Store. Pours a dark brown with little head. Toffee nose, with some wood. Dark brown color, fizzy body. Caramel, sweet body, raisins and a nutty end. Crisp texture. OK, but a little too sweet.

Smells a bit nutty, but mostly like less-expensive ale. Fizzy on pour, dark brown, but golden around the edges, it looks pretty avg. Light sweetness with nutty overtones, toasted malts and light breadiness. It tastes just a bit lighter thatn it looks. Not too bad, the sweetness is growning on my as I taste it, but it’s fairly simplistic.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Brown color with red shades. Nice aroma of caramelized nuts, maple syrup. Dry mouthfeel, but good flavor of dark caramel, roasted nuts, chestnut honey; correct bitterness; more roasted nuts in the end. Balanced and well brewed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured extremely dark brown...almost black with medium-high soft head. Nose of sweet cream, macadamia nuts & dark chocolate. Extremely soft mouth feel with an abundance of light-sweet malt, cashew, and some bitter background noise. Very well balanced but just the slightest touch on the sweet side. Finish is even more sweetness. Still a pleasent nut brew.
