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.

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.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Nose is nutty, roasted. Easy drinking, malt light smoke almost. Not a bad beer.

341ml bottle from tasters 6-pack pours brown in color with a finger of light beige head which leaves a few spots of lacing behind. 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. Pretty good beer.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft served in a pint glass at Hart & Thistle. Pours a dark, cloudy chocolate brown with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted barley malts, gritty roast, chocolate, wheat, and toasted sugar. The flavor comes across as a weaker version of the same notes, with an odd, mineral finish. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts nice and toasty before falling out into a minerall mess. My wife, always a sucker for brown ales, liked this more than I did.

341ml bottle. I seem to have found this more nutty and woodsy that the other ratings here, but still good, nonetheless.
