fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bouteille de 1 litre achetée dans un BC Liquor store de Vancouver. Dégustée le 2 mai 2009 (pint). Bière brune foncée quasi opaque, avec des reflets rouges. Mousse énormément, col beige très très épais, persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes à grosses. Odeur de chocolat noir bien présente. Douce, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de chocolat noir, de noisettes grillées bien présent, avec un peu de caramel. Saveur caractéristique de ce style, très typée. Bien équilibrée, se boit bien.

I’ll be the first to say I don’t enjoy nut brown ales but this was good. Mild caramel and nut flavors. Pretty good!

Lagerboy (1808) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
1 litre potstopper. Clear deep dark caramel copper, feeble tan foam fades fast. Sweet medium roast aroma. Caramel nutty roasted malty taste, faint herbal bitterness, no noticeable licoice or chocolate. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Nice enough.

Pours a hazy light amber brown with a gray brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of chocolate and nuttiness with a backing licorice and a but of deep dark grain. Flavor begins with a bit of sweet grains and chocolate with a nutty finish.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Rating #897 - January 9, 2014 - 1oz sample from Bar Manager at Craft Beer Market, probably due to @kgamiller’s charms, not my own. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Really really light in body for a brown ale. Taste is bold hazelnutty sweetness, dominant roast malt, low hop character with a slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Impressive.
