UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 On tap at Caffe Barney on Main St. Not much head or nose. It purports to be a nut brown ale, but is actually much closer to a porter or stout. As such, itís a rather pleasant one. Malts predominate. Coffee is the dominant theme. Didnít notice any nut flavors whatsoever. Nice but not complex.

Draught. Dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is toffee, plum with hints of banana and chocolate. Taste is hazelnut, date, burnt sugar, hint of chocolate. Medium bodied, starts sweet and nutty on the palate and then finishes with a roasty bitterness and a slightly burnt aftertaste.

Pours a dark tea-like brown with three fingers off-white head. Smell is more fruity than nutty, very little roast, malty sweetness. There is slightly more roast and a nutty flavor in the taste, the right amount of sweetness on the finish. Very great drinking beer.

Big thanks to Lizzie! 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.

Good brown ale. Medium brown with some clearing in the middle. Malty nose with a little banana. Light carbonation easy to drink with some nutty flavors.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Finally trying this! Single bottle given to me at Christmas 2011 from my brother. Colour: Medium chocolate brown with minimal head. Nose: As the label says, nut domimant malt, hint of champagne, light traces of coffee and even cheap perfume. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Light and cherry-like on entry. Mid palate produces a solid sour-kick with some walnut and almond. Finish moves into charcoal and rough grit with bittnerness.

On tap. Pours clear auburn. Burnt almonds, toffee, sweet malts on the nose. Medium bodied with a bit of sweetness. Flavours of hazelnuts, toffee, with a dry finish of charred oak - slightly bitter. Decent.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
Brew pours a cola brown with a tall tan crown reducing to thick film. Soapy sour aroma, mild hints of coffee, some hazelnut. Big toffee notes in the nose all of a sudden. Taste is light with a mild vinegar finish. Sour, nuts, coffee, some kind of red punch possibly peach. The vinegar like finish is really bugging me its not bad but its not appealing. Medium carbonation with a thin body. I can drink this but why?
