TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, - JAN 28, 2012
Hard to tell from a chilled pint glass. Had a spicey nose from the smaller sample glass, more head too. Pretty dark, more than i expected offf the tap. Flavour is a bit nutty, almost a coffee but not quite at the end. Not too shabby.

Clear orange to brown liquid with a small tan head. Aromas of dark bread, grain, cereal, and sweet dark caramel. Feel is a touch fizzy and metallic. Moderate sweet start. A bit acidic and sour, a sour mash flavor. 9/10

Poured from the tap. Dark mahogany with minimal beige head. Mild caramel and roast malts with some nuttiness. Light medium body. Simple and kinda boring.

piscator34 (2345) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottled sample. Pale brown (slightly red) in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of vanilla nougat, and toasted nuts. Fairly sweet in the mouth with more vanilla, pistachio, and toffee. You can taste a bit of roast on the back end, which translates as mild roast coffee to me. Lighter bodied than expected, in spite of all of the sweetness. Sort of a by-the-book oldschool nut brown ale. Ok as is, but far more interesting things are happening with this style now.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
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.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
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.
