2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 mL bottle. Pours walnut with a thin beige cap. Nutty toffee on the nose, some grainy malt, but lacking. Taste is a little sweet, watery, slightly bitter on the finish. Light to moderate body and moderate to full carbonation. Leaves a lot to be desired.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at the Only. Pours a cloudy orange-ish dark brown with average-sized light tan head. Aroma is a weird caramel and a bit of chocolate. Flavour likewise, although as it warms some fruitiness emerges and it becomes more pleasant. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
341mL bottle. Pours a dark brown copper colour with a moderate off white head. Looks pretty filtered. Roasty caramel brown sugar, toasted bread aroma. Coffee and toast a bit more evident on taste. Hint of coffee. Body a little watery, but clean and smooth. Overall, something that would be easy to drink a few of.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Victory Cafe, Toronto cask: Pours a dark brown with a small head. Aroma is ambiguously malty. Taste is slightly sweet. Body is far too light to be a solid brew. I had difficulty finishing this because I had very little desire to drink the whole thing. This was a disappointment at best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some smell of bitter hops and a follow through that has a hint of coffee on it, a nutty bitter. A medium body with an alright amber colour and virtually no head. Not bad. Bottle.

This ones a bite weird and a little diff from other dark ALES i had. Dark beers rule! This one is watery,heavy,I can notise the english hops after the watery part(but in a diff way)AND then some brown sugar ruffness with some chocolate in the taste. I do like this one but its a bit weird a little. Fire brewed old style

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear red-brown with thin head. Aroma - chocolate, grains, licorice. Taste is reasonably well balanced between sweet/bitter, perhaps a bit of a sugary sweetness in there. Carbonation seems harsh and distracting.
