Sold in bars and tall cans at LCBO. Pleasant aroma with toasty malt and taste of oats. Nice, smokey finish. Great brown ale from a local brewery.

Tasting at Matt’s, can
Brown color, small head. The dark malts are a bit chocolatey. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; a bit chocolatey and roasty, correct bitterness, a bit ashy in the end. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 Love the strong roasted aroma and has a good full taste. The head did not last very long. Would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
473ml can. Pours a clear dark ruby with with a tan head. Cocoa, molasses, light ash, lots of toasted dark malt notes, a faint smell of squash, and light straw. Taste wise, medium bodied with molasses, light cocoa, light ash, and strong coffee that leads into dry molasses notes, more black coffee and mineral bitterness in the finish. Really comes across more like a lighter bodied stout than a traditional brown ale, but it’s solid. I’ll definitely buy it again.

On tap @ Stout TO. Pours a near opaque brown with a mocha head. Aromas are nutty and roasty. Tastes are coffee, roasty malts, and light hop bite. Full body, light bitter bite but creamy and smooth. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml. Canned Sept 14, 15. Pours a clear, deep brown with a thin, khaki head. Aroma has great notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, and a touch of toffee. Taste is a touch bitter with dark chocolate and a bit of coffee to start, then some caramel and dark fruits to end. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Creamy in the mouth with a medium dry finish. Overall a nice, easy drinking beer. Solid roasted flavours with chocolate caramel, toffee, and a creamy mouth feel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the brewery. Dark brown pour with a small khaki head that fades quickly to a ring. Nose is roasted malts and nuts with cocoa, coffee, and vanilla. Light sweet caramel supports a medium- coffee and chocolate bitterness. Medium creamy mouth with soft carbonation and a lingering dry finish. Quite enjoyable.

Dark brown, would be black except for the tawny brown tinge. Thin carbonated foam that rings the glass and dissipates quickly. Woody and cured meat aroma smells like salt water. Easy drinking, light mouth feel, herbal and ceral grain flavour like baked bran muffins
