UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 June 2007. Draft at the brewpub. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Sweet dark malt aroma with mild roast and light notes of watery coffee. (7+) Sweet roasty malt flavour with varying notes of mocha and dark bitter chocolate, muted toffee and an interesting melange of all of these that lingers in the aftertaste. (7+) Average palate could be more robust but is fitting for the English style. This was in great shape today - very nice. 7+/3+/7+/3/15-16 - 3.7 <P>Feb 2004 re-rate, Dark ruby brown with a nice beige head. Malty slightly fruity flavour with a bit of roasty mocha. Lighter bodied than expected but still a nice mouth feel. Not much aroma which was surprising. Probably their best beer. 5/4/7/3/14 - 3.3 <P> Jan 2001: Had this on it’s own and in the Beer Float. Nice dark brown ale. Fairly sweet and malty. This was my favourite of their beers.

An odd beer. It seems to be more than a brown ale but not quite a porter. Anyway . . . Dark brown w/ good head & lacing. Slightly roasty/toasty aroma. Full-bodied and chewy. Toasty malt character w/ notes of chocolate, coffee, nuts & fruit. Certainly this brewery’s best offering.

The best of the beers from this brewery. Nice malty backbone with a touch of roast. Solid, if not a little sweet.
