3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap at the brewpub] A beutiful brown-amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel as well as toffee and roasted bread. The flavor is dry roasted with notes of toffee and roasted bread, and a slightly bitter hoppy end. An OK brown ale.

Bright amber-brown coloure. Toasty-toffeeish aroma with a hint of nuts. Slightly nutty, toffeeish flavour. Reasonably rich and full, as brown ales go.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice reddish brown ale with a thin light moka head. A surprisingly Belgian aroma, with fruity esters, toffee, and nutty notes, very surprising and nice. In mouth, a robust malt with light hops, light chocolaty notes, fruity esters, light sovent notes. Medium bodied. A solid Belgian inspired brown ale. On tap at Les Brasseurs du Temps, May 14 2009.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 This rich brown ale is full of coffee and nutty notes, along with pleasant fruity caramel sweetness…A distinctive woody bitterness is quickly enveloped by this proficient maltiness, and dark chocolate is even added for good measure...

limited beige head, clear medium brown. Nutty brownies nose, fairly roasty, but simple and sweet nonetheless. Roasted nuts and chocolate dessert make up most of the flavors. Light-medium bodied, very light carbonation once again, is there a CO2 issue here? Alright I guess.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft: Poured a medium brown color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of caramel malt with some light toffee notes also discernable. Taste is also dominated by some sweet caramel malt with some light toffee notes with no apparent hops presence. Not bad overall but nothing to wrote home about either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral, nutty, chocolatey aroma is clean and appealing with a touch of citrus. Clear mahogany brown with a light ring of white head. Sweet, floral, honey flavour fades to reveal nutty chocolates and a light roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation though somewhat watery in texture. Sampled at the brewpub with Oakes, Rastacouere and Ungstrup.
