dark red in color, slight hop to the aroma with a hint of coffee beans, had a little chocolate taste with hints of coffee and bitter hops, a little rough on the palate, not terribly enjoyable

SoberDave (144) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Little aroma to speak of, maybe cocoa with an alchohol. Brown colour. Taste of burnt coffee with cocoa bean and hops. Carbonation on the tongue is nice and a bite to it. Below average ale.

Hazy amber pour. The nose is soft and fresh with a little bit of soft herbal hoppiness. Fresh with a touch of fruity esters as well. Peppery hops that just balance the touch of cocoa. Solid brew really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ontbeertaster (2339) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2011
Tastes of a typical amber ale, dark in colour, nice finish and flavourful finish, good offering, would have again

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
[1540-20080719] Tap. Grainy yeast and a bit of earthy sand aroma. Slightly hazy, dark amber brown body with no lasting head. More yeast grains and a bit of house tang in the flavour with a lingering sand characteristic. Medium body is under-carbonated. Drinkable.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008
2008-07-19. Dark amber-brown body, near headless. Nutty toasty-roasty malt in the aroma smells like the dust emanating from the bags of a specific type of malt that they used at Black Oak, but I don’t recall what it was. (6+) Same character carries over to the flavour, takes on a hint of the house yeast, hints of florals briefly, light bitterness, glimpses of cocoa, bit threadbare at times. Average palate. Rather decent and shows lots of promise but only delivers on part of it. Nice. Draft at the brewpub

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2008
On tap at the Brewery- According to our server, this is one of their "flagship beers" that is always on. Clear deep amber liquid sits beneath a one finger white cap. No lace to speak of. Floral hops and caramel in the nose with sugary grains and cereal. Pretty sweet malts and some bread crust lead into caramel and a nutty component. Sweet, slightly thin ,slightly bitter finish. Good.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Clear light brown ale with a thin off white head. A light diluted malt aroma. In mouth, a rather diluted brown ale, like something they rinsed from the fermentor with water, and put in a keg. Watery like crazy. On tap at brewery, July 28 2007.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Amber brew with small fizzy head op top. Aroma: plenty of sweet malt, woody character, and spice placed behind. Medium bodied, chewy malts .woody, spicy character more prominent. Unfortunately this beer developed Light soapy aftertaste.
