Aroma: The nose is malty and roasty, some caramel malts, nuts, and some earth
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-brown color with a light brown head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, nutty and a little roasty, mild smoke, and a little earth

I thought this was another decent offering from Garrison. It’s not a standout and not a bad beer either. This was kind of a theme with the beers I tried from Garrison.

Aroma is light roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is light malty sweetness with a hint of chocolate and an earthy nuttiness with some mild hop bitterness as well. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated for a decent enough feel on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice clear brown colour with big off white head that quickly dissolves into a tiny little ring. Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, chocolate, nutty, and getting a bit of toast. Flavour is malty, caramel, chocolate, toast, mild-medium bitterness, faint citrus and a dry finish. Tasty beer especially if its not ice cold.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent full bodied ale with a good mix of tastes- chocolate, oakey. Smooth finish, but not as thick textured as one would expect.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An OK beer, but it’s juuuuuuust over the border to a nut brown, almost just a run-of-the-mill ale. My tongue didn’t get any nuts. Or go nuts for that matter. A little too carbonated, too. But nice for the autumn in Halifax I guess, certainly wasn’t offensive.

Pas méchant, mais surtout pas mémorable. Saveur torrefié mal soutenu, fini assez sec.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown colour with some tan head. Has a real smoked aroma to me, some roasted malts and also has a bit of funk. It is a medium bodied brew almost watery lacking real complexity or flavour. although it is one of their better brews.
