[4549-20120622] Tap. Mild bandaid medicinal booze malt aroma hints a little at chocolate. Dark brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted wood and coffee malt grain flavour. Medium body is a little dry. Nice to sample, not sure I could drink a dry pint. (6/3/7/4/14) 3.4

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, June 22. Pours reddish-brown with pretty much no head. Aroma of malt and what seems like toffee and chocolate to me. Flavour is malty, slightly toasty and with some light hops. Average bodied. Not great but good.

On cask at C’est What Summer Festival Of Craft Breweries. Pours an opaque slightly orangey brown with small tan head. Aroma is rich toffee-ish malt with some bread. Flavour is also rich, somewhat toasty malt with toffee and bready character. Carbonation is on the light side. Pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012-06-22. Dark brown body witha small beige head. 3+ Sweet malt base with toasty brown ale overtones that take more precedence as the glass goes on. Dusty malt grows in the finish and aftertaste. Similar aroma, modest toasty brown ale character over a sweeter malt base. Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Pretty solid take on a brown ale.
