Canned at RBESG ’07. Dark brown. Sweet and fruity with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Roasty malt gives me coffee and butter, there’s notes of apples before a carefully bitter finish. Quite good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from matt7215. Thanks once more. Pours a dark ruby brown with a frothy beige head. Aromas of dark roasted malt and chocolate and citrus. Medium body with creamy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, and barring some dark malt that’s it. Finishes mildly bitter and chocolate. It’s a mild brown ale, and all the chocolate makes it quite tasty. Damn good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can acquired in trade with blankboy (thanks!). This one was a gusher - all over my kitchen counter (thankfully I didn’t open up at my desk). Settled into a deeper brown color. Aromas of brown sugar, caramel, and light toasted malts. I was also getting maple syrup (could be that whole Canadian mental thing going on). Tastes of brown sugar, light chocolate, caramel, and light roast. Definitely on the sugary sweet side in both the aromas and tastes. Thinner body.
