330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep brown with garnet highlights and a fair light tan head.
Aroma: Nutty and roasted maltiness, a little chocolate, a bit earthy, very slightly tangy/vinous, so roasted.
Palate: Medium+ body with fairly full carbonation, smooth, velvety.
Flav.: Nutty roasted malt, black coffee, some cereal, nice; dry with reasonable bitterness and a dark-roasted and affable finish.
Quite the Brown Ale.

A solid nutty brown. Malt, roasted nuts, biscuit malt and nice balancing hops. Surprised the oatmeal doesn’t stretch out the taste more.

Dark pour tan head. Smells like oats and toasty malt. Taste is slightly bitter, medium bodied, soft and creamier than the taste would suggest. Nice overall beer, would please most.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - 473ml. Pours a dark brown body with amber glints and a thin, off-white foamy head. Good malty aroma with nutty and woody hints. Its robust malty taste carries hoppy, woody, and grainy notes. Ends with a long oaky finish. Good stuff.
