wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2003
Tasted at TFOB. Brown colour. Slight head in the glass. Aroma of smoked meat - pork scent especially. Taste of slightly smoked wood.

GregClow (2903) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2003
Rich ruby-brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma of wood, malt and (of course) smoke. The body is a bit on the light side, but once the peaty smoked flavour kicks in, that's the least of your worries. It's not the most perfectly balanced beer I've ever had, but that whisky-like smoke flavour just warms my tummy every time.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2003
A unique ale from Church-Key. Combines peat smoked malt with crystal malt to give a smokey-sweet beer. Only negative is the finish which disappears far too quickly.

radiomgb (2275) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Deep red in colour. Slightly smokey aroma. Flavour was of caramel, burnt nuts and was smokey at first and then it got really sweet. It was an interesting beer.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Mahogany, lightly smoky aroma, some butterscotch and berries. A burst of smoke at first sip, caramel. Nice smoky, almost burnt finish. Since I wasn't expecting anything I was quite pleased. Thanks to Captain Flurries.

CapFlu (4550) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2003
(Draught) Served ICE cold at the Lounge in Picton, Ontario. Pours a nice almond head with an opaque black body. Near odorless at this temperature; slight mellow malt. Flavours of smooth, fair sweetness with slight roast malt. Clean finish. Surprisingly light. Very enjoyable!

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2003
Dark, brown appearance with a smoky aroma and flavour. Roasted malt comes through in the finish. Comes through as a decent drinkable brew.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2003
Dark brown - black. Good carbonation with a frothy lacy tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt and smoke and some fruity aleness. Slightly sweet flavour with peat smoke and chocolate accented malts. Somewhat scotch ale like with roasted and chocolate malt. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Oakes (12743) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 Light brown; with 10% peated malt, this is a little unbalanced, in a Laphroaig kind of way, with big burning embers and underlying malts that fight to sustain the beer. If you've already numbed your palate a little bit, this is nice stuff, but could be a little overpowering otherwise.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2002
Dark brown w/ decent off-white head. Light smokey aroma. Medium-thin body. Light smokey/peaty flavour though not overly assertive.
