VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle from jerc - thx dude. Pours out a very dark brown with a medium sized foamy light brown cap and slight spotty lacing. Clear with a touch of sediment or whatever. Clean caramel aroma with a surprising nose of chocolate, a very balanced dose mellow roast, hint of fruit and a light sweetness that seems tied into the caramel. Tastes pretty good and stays very mellow an unassuming. The flavours all seem equally apparent which lends to more of a hard to place taste. Roast, nice mellow fruit and a touch of hops that are hardly bitter what so ever, caramel with a bit of chocolate, hint of spice. Lightly carbonated and smooth and leaves a sweet caramel roast after taste. A plain beer but a very good plain beer.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2010
Can, sent to me from Kingston Ontario. Dark brown, golden highlights, medium off-white head. Dark caramel and chocolate aromas, nice intensity. Equal parts chocolate and fruity caramel flavour, medium sweetness, medium bodied. Another nice Muskoka brew.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2010
473ml can. Not a particularly memorable beer, mostly due to an overly metallic feel to it that took away from the sweetness I often enjoy in brown ales. Good otherwise, with flavours of nuts and a hint of chocolate. Did the trick.

Had to pour this one out, very malty, I believe it was a poor malt choice, this beer could use a make over. not recommend

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
473ml can. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is heavy on malt and straw, with lesser notes of cocoa, earth, and a hint of what smells like "off" peanuts. Taste is upfront with coffee, chocolate syrup, slightly sweet, and some straw, coffee, and biscuit in the off-dry finish.

thorongil2 (1392) - , Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
(can) clear dark amber, medium light brown head; aroma of roast, simple lightly sweet flavour with long light bitter finish, overall uninspired

thb (707) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2010
Pours very dark brown. Medium-thin light brown head fizzles for a bit then is gone. Aromas of hazelnuts, toast, maybe even something like cherries? Lively bitter roastiness. Very dry beer. Slight metallic tinge to it. My big problem though is with the mouthfeel - just absurdly thin.

Brewmaster88 (53) - Petrolia, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
473ml can from 5 pack mixer pack. Taste is of smokey chocolate and coffee. Not much too the nose. Overall probably the best I’ve sampled from this micro.

thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2010
A - Roasted coffee, chocolate and caramel A - A touch lighter then stout, with thick, but short lasting head T - A sharp smokey bitterness is definitely the overwhelming flavor with slight sweet undertones P - Medium to full body with light carbonation O - A good beer...love the chocolate notes

sseb69 (1559) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2010 Cannette 473 ml. 5%. Couleur brune très foncé, presque noire. Mousse beige fugasse. Arômes de chocolat et cerises noires. En bouche, elle est douce, légèrement amère. Notes de chocolat et un peu de fruits. Finale avec un peu d’amertume et de noix. Excellente et elle se boit bien.
