mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
[1979-20090131] Cask. Mild yoghurt brown bread aroma has a hint of wet mildew. Hazy, dark red brown body with a quick creamy off-white head. Chocolate grainy yeast flavour with a smooth and dry finish. Medium body is smooth. Very drinkable, something it in works for me.

robinvboyer (3003) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
On tap at c’est what? This i was not a big fan of. I found this to be way too bitter for a brown ale. I didnt get any of the so called smoke they make reference to. There was a fake nuttiness that was in the flavor and aroma i didnt like very much, and this was way too bitter in the finish to be enjoyed. it just seemed to be unbalanced and all over the place.

DerWeg (1487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2009
nitro dispense at CW. Unexpected smokey notes over the light roast, light feel, soft hoppy notes, mellow nutty and sour with a nice sour aftertaste. Ultimately a bit musty like Beamish Stout, not really my thing. Some late styrene-like flavors.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Cask at the Victory Café Winter Festival. Pours dark brown with an average size diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, some toffee (or diacytl), nuts and very light hops. Flavour, again of lightly toasted caramel malt, along with some nuts and a hint of green hops. Didn’t really get any smoke. Decent body, perhaps a little thin. Nothing great but It’s good, I’d drink it again.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2009
Cask. At Victory Cafe Cask Ale Festival, January 2009. Clear deep ruby-amber pour, average off-white cask head. Smells of nutty malt extract, cola and toffee - sort of cheap, really. Tastes the same, but generic bitterness intrudes from somewhere, pretty characterless. The body was on the thin side, only mildly carbonated even for cask, syrupy and harshly bitter in the finish - while I pretty much disliked the components of the beer (aroma, taste, mouthfeel etc) my overall impression was weirdly "decent" - go figure.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2009
2008-01-31. Dark ruby brown body with a small bubbly tan head. (3+) Flavour is a bit muddled, light bitterness, muted citrus tang. (6+) Aroma is muted, chocolate, malt, "brown ale". Average plus palate. Decent but fairly mild, not much there. Cask at Victory Cafe

Cask at Victory Cafe Cask Ale Festival. Smoky aroma and flavour overpowers the sweetness of malts.
