GregClow (3215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2009
Draught at Volo. Deep ruby-brown with a tan head. Aroma is very nutty and roasty, with lots of hazelnut and a bit of cocoa. Flavour follows, with the addition of a bit of coffee, and a moderate dose of herbal hops in the finish. Could pass for a light-bodied porter. I like it!

[2079-20090405] Tap. Mild toasted fruit aroma is mildly sweet. Hazy, dark red brown body with a long-lasting creamy light tan head and some lacing. Fruity cherry malt flavour is toasted with a nice mild roasted coffee toffee. Medium-full body. Drinkable, quite good.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Draught at C’est What?. Pours a very deep ruby, almost brown, with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Decent lacing. Mild roasty aroma along with mocha. Flavour’s a bit watery and quite metallic. The metallic aspect of it diminishes after a few more sips, which is good. It’s roasty along with some nuts, caramel and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s fine, I found it just O.K.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2009
Draught. At C’est What. Clear, very deep brown-black with a small creamy beige head. Light, dry roast aroma, lightly herbal, roast coffee bean. Tastes more like a mild - roasty, light, dry, just the right amount of bitterness, but, sadly, a huge mouthful of metal right off the top. Light-bodied, slightly astringent (lingering metal effect), with a decently long, somewhat bitter finish. Would be an excellent session drinker, if not for that metal presence.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2009
2009-04-05. Very dark brown body with a nice foamy tan head and some lace on the glass. Pleasant aroma, roasty dark malt with just a kiss of sweet malt, cocoa and mocha. Brief allusion to Ovaltine? (7+) Flavour has a sweet malt base, light caramel notes, muted nutty-roast notes, modest metallic touches in the finish, lightly minerally aftertaste. (7+) Average plus palate is lightly carbonated. Less roasty and nutty than some brown ales, which I personally appreciate. Solid example of the style. On tap at Cest What

DerWeg (1594) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
On tap at C’est What? Ruddy brown fairly dense coat, fine small cap. Great aroma of yeast and hint coffee, caramel. Tastef immediately of chocolate and a BG hint of coffee, and toffee-caramel flavors - very full tasting Brown. Nice lingering telltale bitterness of well-integrated hop. Super nice!!!!!!!

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2009
A deep dark reddish brown ale with a thin creamy lacing moka head. A nutty caramel with light vegetable notes, and a bit of butterscotch. In motuh, a nice woody brown ale, with treacle, brown sugar, buttery notes. A nice brown ale with light licorice notes in finale. Quite nice. On tap at Volo, March 21, 2009.

Sammy (11242) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at Volo. A Competent brown, with middle brown body and som white head. Decent malty and licorice aroma. Taste is balanced, though biased sweet. Ends with a reasonable bitterness. Above average carbonation, and a tad weak mouthfeel.

pfriesen (113) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2009
Growler from the Brewery. Dark Reddish Brown with off white head, rapidly dissipating to lace. Sweet mild chocolate aroma, medium body, balanced malt with just a tinge of sourness
