Bendrixian (1101) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
341 ml bottle. Clear brown brew. Muted aroma with some roast and caramel and a hint of nuttynes but not much else. The palate is equally quiet with some light toasty bitterness and a hint of caramel sweetness but overall a disappointing brew that I won’t order again.

crucethus (3) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014 does not count
Mediocre beer does not linger on the palate. Good with spicy foods. Colour deep amber and very foamy.

kevinsenn (1066) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
On tap. Clear brown with foamy head. Nutty and toasty with caramel sweetness. A fine run-of-the-mill dark ale.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
TheJester (1866) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
341 mL bottle. Cola brown with a ring of head. The expected nuttiness and/or breadiness is there to a small degree in the nose, but not much else. It is quite mild, but not unappealing. It is there in the flavour as well, which isn’t too sweet. Body is quite decent. One dimensional, but nothing else wrong with this one. Would probably be good on tap or from a cask.

hoppybeerlover (42) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Dark Draft pour, thick head that faded slowly to a thin ring. Smells ’red’, a bit flowery. Deep malty taste with a sweet chocolat aftertaste.

2.3
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
shaynsawchuk (466) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
lagerette (30) - - JUN 15, 2013
341mL bottle. Pours clear dark copper/ mahogany colour with off white head. Aroma sweet, malty nutty with brown sugar and caramel. Taste of caramel, coffee, toffee. Fair bitterness. It is a very pleasant and enjoyable smooth beer.

2.8
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Spab (2362) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
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.

MarkoR (519) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Draught. Dark ruby-brown colour, thin head. Taste of chocolate. Not a bad beer.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
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.
