355ml Bottle: This one disappointed me, I had higher hopes than what it offered. Poured with no head, so there wasn’t any to hover around and keep me company. Aroma was roasted malts and caramel to start, but took on a real wet grass/skunk character as it warmed. Flavour is very watery and bland for a brown ale with sweet roasted malt, slight toffee, and a little hops near the end.

Bottle- Pours a transparent red/brindle with a loud froth of beige bubbles. Aroma is sheer malt/brown sugar/caramel. About as expected. The flavour profile is somewhat skewed by it’s watered down character. Some sweet malts and toffee, with underlying occasional hops ’n bitterness. Pretty thin for my tastes in a brown ale.

blankboy (6412) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle at The Rhino. Pours a clear, very bubbly, reddish-brown with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Slightly mild aroma of caramel malt and a hint of roastiness. Watery flavour of caramel malt, nuts and a mild finish of roastiness and hops. Thin bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, better then I expected it to be.

Mostly roasted malt coming through, very faint tastes of caramel or chocolate though. I will try again, but not so soon.

Wow, predominant roast, the carbonation on my first two was great. The second was a little lacking. A decent dark beer. Purchased at my visit to the brewery.

Dark reddish brown, off white head. Metallic, malty, slightly roasted aroma and flavours. As it warms chocolate and berries become more pronounced, though overall it’s a little unpleasant. Bottle.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2004
Pours deep red/brown with a thin off white head. Chocolatey malt, mossy aroma. Mildly roasty. Thin body. Sweet malts, hops are very far in the back. Traces of sour, salt water taffy, some smoke and wood. Dry souring finish, not bad.

Sampled at the Toronto Festival Of Beer 2004. Brown-amber colour with a wispy tan head. Aroma is a little roasty with some caramel notes, and a bit of sourness. Body is moderate, a little creamy. Flavour is decent, with some coffee and chocolate notes, and a lingering roasty finish.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 carbonated on-tap but I wouldn’t want to buy a six-pack. Bit of head. Carmel malty to make it popular in Canada. Mid-sip hint of roast malt cream chocolate, but we are not talking about a stout or porter here, more medium mouthfeel.

Bottle. I have mixed feelings on this one. Poured a nice brown colour, little head. Lots of caramel in the aroma and taste – it was quite thin though with little carbonation. I enjoyed it, right up until the finish – it was yeasty and a little sour. Now I should point out I bought this 6 pack from a very small town Ontario lcbo/beer store combo and this type of “micro” beer could have been there for quite a while (there was no date stamp). So I will re-rate on another occasion. But until then, I’m left with a beer that showed some promise, but ultimately failed to deliver.
