A dissapointing beer. Really no flavor. I tried it at many temperatures trying to get the flavor. At best taste at cellar temps and you may taste a very slight carmel toastiness in the finish. Aroma was plain with a odd yeasty graininess.

Mhhhh, beer. Melt in your mouth kind of goodness, it's dark, it's tasty, it's Made in Manitoba.

Very nice dark beer. Only criticism is that it's a bit too sweet. However, all in all, it's great. May be hard to get outside central Canada.

Very roasted flavour, little aroma and a solid aftertaste. Goes very well with dark meats or pastas. Not really a sitting around drinking all evening beer, but I would recommend it. (seems a little better from a tap than a bottle)

best in the world. thick full flavorful dark that is filling, refreshing (when cold) and all around satisfying. I will never find love like this again if you should ever leave me, a part of my soul would die. I remember when I met you, in your younger years your fruity flavours wowed me. We’ve grown uip together, grown smokier and a little more bitter and I want to thank you for memoriess past and anventures still to come.

One of the best dark ales I have had. Thick dark brown. A very light sweet malt flavour. As usual, draft is better then bottle.

An excellent beer, great with steak or red meat. One of my favourites. Good flavour excellent appearance. Only thing that could be improved is aroma. All together one of the best Dark Ales I have tried.
