Named after the great Scottish King, Malcolm Canmore. A very dark, nutty and well-hopped Ale. Anyone who likes a “Heavy”, this is the beer for them.

On tap 3 oz. sampler at the Grizzly Paw Brew Pub in Canmore, Alberta. Clear, rusty brown with a fine khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of nuts and toffee. Taste of nuts and toffee. Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization. Bland, lacking in complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Vineous berrylike roasted aroma. Dark red brown, low lace. medium light, slightly tinny body. Roast base, light herbal and spicy - lavender and berries. Quick somewhat watery finish. Nice aroma, a bit disappointing after that.

Nice near-black colour, bust tastes like stewed swiss chard. Don’t know if it is a bottle infection or just the beer, but I am not enjoying this...

Reddish-brown, vaguely nutty aroma, light body, thin, little nutty but the thinness is overwhelming anything else.

Brown, vaguely nutty, a bit too much caramel sweetness but I still like it.

On tap at Grizzly Paw Brewing, pours a clear amber with a small tan head. Aroma brings out spoiled vegetables. Flavour is slightly better, with notes of toasted nuts and slightly cloying caramel. Not the most refined nut brown, with too much residual sweetness. It’s okay, but very flawed.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a thin dark brown with a small white ring. Aroma is nutty, light butterscotch. Taste is thin body, butterscotch and nut. It says well hopped, I would disagree.

65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Cola appearance. Thin head. Faint brown sugar aroma. Metallic flavour, then sweet caramel and more metal on the finish. Lighter body than expected.

Bottle. Pours amber-brown. with a tan head. Malt and nut aroma. Taste is toasty malt, nut, backed by some decent hops. Bit of a thin body.
