3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. This brown ale is very much like a lighter porter, which actually works pretty well. Taste and aroma hit roast malt, coffee and toffee notes but are less forceful than a porter or stout and the body is definitely medium. Overall, a good choice if you want something lighter on the dark ale spectrum.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Beer Store 500ml can ($2.65): Pours a dark brown color with a tannish head. Aroma is mostly roasted malt. Taste is a little bit sweet. Finish is not so great; it is a little metallic and watery. A tiny bit of hops are present. Mostly just malty. Feels kind of light. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can, found somewhere in the cold climes of Ottawa. Hey, Iím from further north, so all the cold-weather paranoia really doesnít mean much to me. Minus eight? Shorts and sleeves weather!! I think this one is a four for appearance, the head is good and the body is a solid dark brown-burgundy hue. The aroma is all simple malts, nothing exciting. The flavour is much the same - malty flavours all over the place, watery finish. No complexity, no enticing mouthfeel. A shame, really - this could have (and -should- have) been much better.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle LCBO: Pours an opaque black/brown with huge beige head which left in a hurry. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate notes. Taste is dark chocolate-covered cherries backed by solid malt presence. Sticky mouthfeel. Not as rich as it could be. Just decent.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Mahogany with a tan head. Medium roast malts (like a porter), some coffee, bittersweet chocolate, grains and nuts. Decent carbonation, bit thin, somewhat sweet, can almost taste the grains, bit dry (almost like some powder bittersweet chocolate is mixed in), slightly off finish. An interesting beer but things just donít blend together correctly.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Opaque brown, huge beige, frothy head, fair amount of carbonation. Aroma: Weak. Subtle notes of vanilla, soy sauce, chocolate. Not much there. Palate: Medium bodied, though on the thin side. Doesnít linger at all. Kinda watery. Taste: slightly bitter. Blah boring.

from a can. Itís kind of like a faux stout.pours a nutty brown colour with a healthy head on it. malty aroma laced with hints of coffee and chocolate. taste initially is malty, nutty bitterness but this quickly vanishes, Who knows where it goes as the tail end is a smooth bitter aftertaste, I;ve no idea what happens in the middle. drinkable but iím not really sure what niche the ale is trying to fill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
can. Poured dark brown with ruby tint. Thin brown head. Roasty, coffeeish aroma. Oddly light mouthfeel. Roasted malt flavour, a bit sour. Mild metallic bitter finish, but quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little bitter, a touch of sourness. Certainly decent, and leaves a nice finish.
