The version at the brewery on tap is very drinkable. A decent aroma and thick brown appearance. Malt forward.

A good start to this brewery with this offering, had on tap at Bar Volo. brown coloured, an above average mouthfeel. Malty, not the more edgy St. Ambroise but spot on the style. Good drinkablity.

draught. Dark earthy brown with tan head. Caramel and nutty malts, roasted, brown sugar. Body was a little thin considering the oats. Still, pretty good beer.

On tap at Spirits. Nice roasty chocolate notes on this one. Bitter finish, but very balanced and sessionable. Above average brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at beer bistro. Oats, lemon & candied brown sugar in the nose on a dark reddish-amber brown with a minimal beige head. Medium to full bodied. Roasted oats, a bit nutty caramel, coffee grinds, but too much lemony hops. Solid but it doesn’t come together for me.

650 mL sample bottle. Pours deep mahogany with a thin cap of off white head. Rich aromas of raisin, caramel malt, fresh fig and a hint of cocoa and woody hop. Mildly sweet with a rounding bitterness and light roast. Smooth and creamy texture, moderate body and carbonation. A stellar brown ale, really does it for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Clearish brown colour and well laced with a very fine bubbled head. aroma is tight with classic notes of roast, nuts, oats and caramel. Similar classically styled palate with bitter roasty notes, medium body, watery mid palate and a light & fast but slightly hoppy/bitter finish. Boring beer.
