Mill Street's best, IMO. Creamy, complex flavours, attractive copper colour. Elements of fruits, hops and nuts. Very unique character and thoroughly enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Undoubtedly the best regularly available beer brewed by Mill Street, which is high praise indeed. It is a deep, rich colour that is darker than your average pale ale, and packs a punch with a multitude of flavours, which are almost citrus-like, with cloves and other spice. I’m probably a bit biased because I have the Tankhouse on draft in my house, so it’s the run-of-the-mill (no pun intended) beer around here. But it’s an excellent beer by any measure, and certainly worthy to have on tap.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Bottle from six pack. Finally had the last one after a few weeks and this will be the one rate with. Pours dark copper, with beige head that fades but leaves pretty good lacing. Aroma is nice and spicy. Flavour is well balanced and very clean. The finish is very nice with just the right amount of spice for my liking. The bitterness lingers very neatly. Delicious. **Re-rate: May 20th 2008 - Another six pack: much better than I remember. Knocked it up a few more points**

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crimson/copper pour, aggressive carbonation lead to a consistent thin head. Not much on the nose. Detect hints of caramel and slight hops. I like the balance and the touch of bitter hops on the palate but I’m not a fan of the thick, carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes nicely.

Ambre cuivré clair avec une mousse de courte durée. Aroma malt caramel, biscuit. La saveur est caramel, biscuit, doux, frais, fruité, un peu de poivré. Finale houblon cascade, très agréable !!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle: Pours a medium, orangish amber colour with a frothy head. An interesting aroma with caramel and nutmeg leading the way. Lot’s of flavours in the mouth, perhaps too many. Caramel, spices, citrus etc.
Finishes slightly bitter followed by a coffee/chocolate aftertaste. I could see this beer becoming an acquired taste but I think there’s too many other great ales out there to give this one too much time.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Much more assertive than their organoic lager. Good hops and bitterness combines with darker malts to give an excellent package.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear reddish brown with a nice white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, with a bit of an outdoorsy nature smell. Aroma also contains a small tinge of apricot. Flavor is a bit spicy, with fairly strong hops that were present in the aroma. Finishes a bit bitter, but in a quick, clean sort of way. Overall, a nice beer with some unique characteristics. One of my local favourites.
