DerWeg (1494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
CAN. Semi-clear deep mahogany-brown with nice natural dark tan head. Delightful vanilla-toffee flavor with a medium-light easy drinking feel. Lightly honey-sweet with bare hints of coffee and chocolate, hops are just a structural presence. Aroma is yeast, hint of espresso, Fucking good!! These people make real beer, and it’s local, and I don’t need drive to Buffalo to get it...

garthicus (2670) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 23, 2009
Can. Dark chestnut brown with a small off white head. Aroma: Somewhat nutty and malty, some corn and yeast. Flavour: Nutty again, some decent malt, hops and yeast. It has a rather weak body, lots of carbonation, chocolate and a malty finish. Not bad.

On tap at Volo. In contrary to the rating here, I have to give this beer some credit. This is the only dark beer I have come across that drinks down smooth. For those of you who hate lagers, but like smooth beers that are easy to down, this one is it. Perhaps a bit dangerous at that. Tastes like a mild oatmeal stout, medium bodied, with almost no aftertaste. A must try!

[1996-20090214] Tap. Some roasty grains aroma. Dark brown body with a small long-lasting creamy light tan head. Roasted chocolate malt flavour has a sweet finish. Medium-full body. Enjoyable, quite drinkable.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 16, 2009
bottle 341ml
Appearance: Brown toned brew with large, frisky fine beaded head.
Nose: Medium rich with sweet brown malts , hint of caramel with roasted barley on side. 7-
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied brew. Smoky roasty mid front with chewable meaty palate. Substantial with enough soft sweets and mid end. Neat to see smoky feel . Solid, refreshing light silky bodied smoked dark ale. Thicker version of this ale would be a blast.

341 ml bottle froma trade with jessem. pours very dark brown with a mid tn head. very nice roast malt aroma with some vanilla, quite inviting. the flavour isnt quite as good. its a little bland, some roast malt, a touch of smoke, but overly thin. the palate is to thin and without the body you are let down after the delightful nose. its a passable brown ale but one that ill pass on in the future.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
341ml bottle from a fresh sixer, from the LCBO. Pours out a nice dark ruby red/brown with a medium mocha head. Aroma: Dry roast, lots of it, metallic, undertone of sweet caramalt and toffee, very nice. Flavour: Decently complex for a 5% beer, layers of the aforementioned characteristics, quite flavourful and closer to a porter really than a brown ale. At the very least this is a highly robust brown ale in all its aspects. A small hint of vanilla is definitely present, riding along a very sweet wave of the malt body. Very well done, glad to get a fresh sample of a solid Ontario brew.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Draught @ Volo. Dark brown with red tint. Malty, mild, with minerals in the nose. Solid smell. Thin and mild body. Coffee notes. Clean and good even if not much going on. Sessionable.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2008
341ml bottle, 5% a/v Pours opaque black with a small tan head. Smells very nutty and malty with the kent goldings hinting at the back. The taste is pretty malty which then turns into a nutty flavor which continues on to a very nice deep coffee. This beer is pretty badass. The mouthfeel is very full and rich and the aftertaste nice. I really like it.
