Deep brown colour, aroma of malt and smoke. Taste is malt and nut. Good dark ale, nothing else of note.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009
Cans bought in Bracebridge. Non descript darker ale. A bit too bubbly for my taste with an utterly neutral nose. A bit of maltiness and not much else to remember it by.

probstblueribbon (2744) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
341 ml bottle in 6-pack from Beer Store, served cool in a tulip glass. JN06/09.

App.: Deep brown, clear, so-so tan head. Aroma: Milk chocolate, medium-roasted coffee, slightly nutty, very light molasses, heavy on the malt. Palate: Medium body and fairly full but soft carbonation. Flav.: Nuttier than the nose, still some medium-roasted coffee, some green hops, slightly earthy and British; dry with a somewhat watery finish.

A pleasant Ontario micro.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
Can. Very dark brown red with a huge creamy off-white head. Very good retention and good lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, toffee, metal and brown sugar. Flavor is caramel, nuts, toasted malt and some hops. Thin to medium body. Average carbonation.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
473 ml can - pours very dark mahogany with an off-white head. Aroma sweet, dark malt, some honey, treacle, brown sugar. Astringently bitter, but more from the extremely roasty malts than the hops. Like burnt coffee. Slight metallic edge in the mouth as well. A bit thin beyond that. An alright brew, but not one of the better browns I’ve had.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2009
Can - 473ml. Dark brown body with good carbonation and a thin beige bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Its dry malty taste lacks complexity and carries some metallic notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Boring.

DerWeg (1431) - 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 (2592) - 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.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2009
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.
