Donít be afraid of the Dark, Lagerboys!
Roasty rich malts, sweet caramel,some chocolate and nuts and light on the hops, this is a light, velvety smooth soft ale.
Another yummy desert beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a dark brown color with some ruby hues when held to the light. It has a light tan head. It is very light on the carbonation front. Appearance itís bang on for a nut brown.
The aroma has some carmel notes and nutís.
The flavor is has a huge amount of nut. As well I am getting carmel, Little faint chocolate notes. There is some espresso thrown in there. It has sort of an overpowering sweetness.
It finishes a light bitterness but it lingers a little. Overall pretty smooth and easy drinking. Not bad but nothing great either. Itís just not doing it for me.

I really enjoyed this beer. 355 mL can poured into glass. Not much head, off-tan in colour, dissipating rather quickly with some lacing. Deep, rich dark brown in colour. Almost opaque and chocolate looking when first poured. When one holds it to the light, visible clear rich brown colour, very nice. Scent of malts and perhaps caramel tones. Delicious rich taste. Definite nut flavours. Very smooth, well carbonated, delicious beer. I would almost describe it as a richer, more robust Newcastle Brown ale. If you like NBA then this one will blow your mind.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with a full head. Kind of watery with hints of malt and smoke that turn to molasses on the tongue. Not a great beer, doesnít have any real flavour, would not buy again.

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. Iíd 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 itís fairly simplistic.
