2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Dockside, pours a hazy dark amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of toasted nuts and light cocoa. Flavour brings out bitter cocoa powder and stale toasted nuts. It’s got that stale quality that they all have had so far. Not offensive but pretty weak and amateurish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at the brewpub pours dark brown in color with a small off-white head which leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and light chocolate. Taste is mild chocolate malt sweetness with some roasted grain and hop bitterness. Medium body with nice carbonation leaving a decent sensation on the palate. Much better than I was expecting and recommended.

Very nice deep dark appearance. Tastes like real English style ale with few aromas of chocolate....

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark nut brown color, mostly vanishing beige head. Slightly toasted aroma of malts. Light to medium bodied. Earthy, dusty hoppyness like in the most Dockside beers. Not much caramel for being a brown ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand pour, special procurement. Coppery red with thin tan head. Caramel aroma is slightly metallic. This leads to a surprisingly well-hopped palate. Tastes much better than it smells. Good malt husks. Metallic bitter finish. Rough around the edges but ok.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draft, this dark-amber brown ale pours with little to no head. Un-exciting and uninspired, an insipidly hollow example of a brewpub-production brown ale. A little over-attenuated, this brown ale misses the mark on mouthfeel or malt flavor. An overly light body is followed by an odd astringency and slight sulfur aroma derived most notably from either sloppy brewing processes or a lack of a clean beer line. This has been my second tasting attempt at Dockside, even though the location can’t be beat the beers fail miserably to impress. This is an example of a brewpub that has a great location, makes great food, and also happens to brew beer to keep the "brewery" designation. When you enter a brewpub and more than half of the patrons are drinking wine, that should really tell you something.
