COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is 5.2% alc. and offers the palate a balance of dark malt notes with a clean, short bitterness on the finish. The name, 1855, is our way of saluting the great city of Ottawa that has been so good to us.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 On tap @ Hintonburg Public House Ottawa. Pours a clear copper colour with a small off white head. Aroma was primarily ripe red berry, reminded me of smelling a nice Shiraz. Taste is a doughy malt, some nuttiness, and a coppery bitterness. Mouthfeel is relatively thin, with a long bitter finish. Not my favourite but not bad.

Metalchopz (2257) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Pretty sure this is the one I had at Berryman Pub in Ottawa, as they called it "Kichesippi Dark". Pours a copper-amber colour with a creamy beige head, good retention and showing some stickiness on the glass. Nice fresh roasty nose with coffee notes. Medium-thick mouthfeel with a little stick to it. Beautiful hoppy presence the whole way, blending things between the mild roasted, caramel and cereal malts. Nice bitterness in the finish creating a mild dry aftertaste. A great session that is very well-balanced.

robinvboyer (3064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
On tap at the manx. Clear brown pour, small off white head. Big upfront aroma of nuts, and doughy, caramel malts. Quite bitter in the end, with a sharp metallic finish. Meh.

Eructoblaster (2983) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
On tap at Sir John A (Ottawa, ON). Brown body with a fair off-white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy and oaky notes. Ends with a decent bitter/woody finish. Enjoyable Brown Ale.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Draught, Pub Italia. Amber-brown. Thin head. Faint aroma is slightly caramelly and nutty. Basically a mild, toasty brown ale. A bit light but nothing wrong with it.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft at Pub Italia. Red-amber, decent lace. Aroma of cookie malt, bran muffin. Sweet malt profile needs more depth, body, oomph, and some hops couldnt hurt. But the bread flavors are pleasant and juicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4661) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
Draft: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light sweet nutty notes as well. Taste is a mix between some nutty caramel notes with some semi-dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not overly complex and easily drinkable.
