3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
472 ml can. Pours a clear dark brown with a massive, persistent mocha-colored head. Aroma is roasty malt, maple, and some coffee. Taste is earthy and toasty malts and bitter coffee. Much lighter bodied than the aroma led to anticipate. Mildly bitter short finish. Decent stout but not a “go to”.

Clear, dark burnt amber with an off white cap. Woody malt, caramel, almond aroma. Taste is roasted malt, and creamy. I didn't have high expectations for this, but I'm pleasantly surprised.

Nice brown color. Thin foam. Aroma caramel, nuts, toast. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter, great toasted grain, thin feel, medium body, average carbonation. Not an exceptional beer but a great brown ale.

Can from LCBO. Pours a beautiful clear dark ruby, with a big frothy white head. Aroma is nutty, toasty, with some English hops. Taste is toasty, smooth, and a little metallic. Thin-bodied. A decent dark ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. Even a delicate pour produced a tan marshmallowy head that took up most if my glass - nice, but frustrating when you can’t actually pour any more beer! Aroma is quite heavy of Swedish berry candies! Beautiful mocha-ruby beer (Lovibond 21). Once head subsides, there’s a ton of thick lace! Flavour is amazingly complex. Can’t put my finger on it... Initially sweet, then bitter like dark chocolate... But there’s a mysterious subtle toasty taste. Detecting Dr. Pepper aroma now that the head is gone. Good carbonation. Excellent!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
April 29 2012. 473ml can pours clear dark brown mahogany with nice 2 inch foamy light tan head. Head settles to cap in minutes. Aroma is light malt and licorice. taste is hardly there but traces of coffee, sweet chocolate, malt and licorice are hinted at. This beer is all appearance and no substance. If that’s the target audience u did it! Too light. Otherwise, I like it. Got 5 more?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good one. Nice chocolate with a very mild roast, not too thin at all, just a good solid interpretation of the style which I plan to buy more of.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Got it in the taster pack witch also came with a can of their new black & tan and their stout. This is my 2nd time with this beer. 1st this yr & see havn’t rated it. 1 finger of small shoirt lived head that lace’s a tiny little. Dark black but can see a redish brown to it without being near light so kinda more brow or red but black as well. Smells of that typ[ical 5% dark ale sourness I notice & some chocolate and or caramle a little. Taste well it’s heavier bodied & way more watery then I thinik It should be taste kinda like a cherry cola with a little chocolate & or caramel.

500ml can pours a dark brown color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel malts with hints of nuts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is a nutty, caramel malt sweetness with light chocolate and coffee and a faint hop bitterness. Body is a little thin for the style and carbonation is decent. Overall, this is quite a tasty brown ale and I rather enjoyed it.
