Smooth with a deep flavor. One of the better beers I have tasted. Great poured from a bottle or drawn from a Beer Pig/Party Pig.

In my opinion the best from Cannery although can be a little watery on tap. Directly from the brewery in a "party pig" it is a great session beer with a full mouthfeel, inviting head, and eye-catching brown colour. Puts OSB to shame.

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.

I stumbled onto this little gem when visiting a friend in Calgary at Stampede... I was floored by the tan head, toffee aroma, and nutty finish. This is the first Brown Ale that I can remember drinking from a can... At last, a beer that one can drink on a golf course with flavour! Say NO to Coors Lite, say YES to Naramata Nut Brown...YAHOO!

Living near the brewery, I taste this one often. Draft is noticeably tastier than canned or bottled IMO. At best, head is good, foamy almond. Pleasant vanilla-chocolate aroma. Flavour is dark nutty with note of chocolate - brewer imports Belgian malt - rich creamy body. Hard to balance this much flavor without making a malt liquor. Nice bitter finish. Drinks nicely room temp. or chilled.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
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.

Cirrhosis (1201) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2009
Dark, dark ,dark brown body barely any light penetrates through when held up to the light. Just the tiniest skiff of bubbles was produced when pored into my glass. Fantastic aroma, dark roasted malts, smooth milk chocolate, hazel nuts, and maybe just a touch of coffee; very rich decadent smell. Creamy smooth taste dominated by chocolate, hazel nuts, a roasted malts it’s over all a sweet tasting beer that leaves a milk chocolate aftertaste. The mouth feel is full but maybe a touch flat. I was surprised by the non bitterness of this beer, its diffently what I would call a desert beer and reminded me more of a porter or a weak sweet stout then a brown ale, but I enjoyed it allot."

Nice clear brown colour with moderate head. Has a nice nutty and mildly roasty and sweet taste..mild and enjoyable.

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.

Don’t 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!
