Pours nice. 1 finger of light frothy oatmeal colored head. Settles to a thin lace. Translucent dark brown, slightly amber when held up to light. Moderate mocha nose. Taste is fruity molasses to start with light hazelnut to finish. Decent brown ale but not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marron foncer avec un tête marron moyen. L’arôme du chocolat et un peu de réglisse. Le goût n’as pas beaucoup de chocolat ou réglisse mais plutôt un peu d’un mélange de malt sucré avec un peu d’houblon.

On tap at Bear Street tavern, Banff. Pours a very dark brown, in fact its nearly black. Rich vineous aroma & plenty of roast malt makes it veer into stout territory. Full bodied & exceptionally robust.

Shared a bottle with a friend. Dark brown pour with a small foamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma, some chocolate. Taste is malty goodness, some sweetness, nuts. Good full body.

Maple and nut aroma. Dark body. A nut ale that taste really quite nutty like hazelnut liqueur. Sweet semi flavourful. Pretty good.

I was surprised by this. In a good way. I don’t think very highly of brown ales for the most part. Coffee aromas. Nice roasted nuts and more coffee flavors. Solid stuff.

fhoublon (316) - 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 (1231) - 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.
