Tap @ Fete Sau w Erica last night. Blood red and brownish pour, negligible off-white head. Aroma is somewhat malty and not much else to notice. Palate is sweet, a little nutty - very non-descript for a brown. Medium to heavy mouthfeel that only serves to amplify the void where I’d expect the nuts, chcocolate, spices to be. This one is aptly named.

Bottle shared by portableparty! Dark brown pour, a little carbonation and a slightly hoppy nose. Flavor was super hot peppery booze, malt and herbs. Way more a barleywine than a brown ale, and decent overall. i would buy this.

Bottle to snifter. Pours clear mahogany color with a off white soapy head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma is roasted burnt malt and has a coco vanilla scent. Taste is malty and boozey with faint pepper and chocolate. Palate is thin and fizzy with a warm dry finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Deep brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly nutty and malty with some light caramel and toast. Herbal and quite light smelling. Low bitterness with a very light sweetness. Kind of a watery brew and not all that great.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2008
Verry hoppy Cascade-y in a cloudy body, persistent tiny bubbles, thin whitish head. Very dry, little malts for a brown, a bit minerally, mild aftertaste.

Wow. What the Fuck??? My third infected McNeills brew in a row. Seriously it’s called quality control, get some.

Has a sour ale type aroma. Lighter body than expected. Caramel and roasted flavor. Not much hops in this bottle. That sour cherry aroma really throws me.

From a 1 pint 6 fl. oz (US) bottle with a label that looked like someone printed it on their computer and ran it through a photocopying machine. No marked expiration date or lot number. This is bottle conditioned and unfiltered. So it poured a surprisingly clear ruby-brown with an off-white head that didn’t last.long. Aroma is hoppy. The taste is sweet and hoppy with a decent mouth feel but it did not remind me so much of a brown as it did an IPA. A tad dry toward the end. AN above average brew.

Experience this on tap, much better than the bottle, IMO. medium brown with a thin head smooth and slightly bitter.
