Chestnut brown. Apple and coffee aroma. Lightish body, fairly dry, rather complex, but perhaps on the edge of feeling thin.

Oakes (15325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2000
Dark chestnut colour. Aroma shows fairly assertive (for this brewery) caramel-toffee flavour and a whiff of dying embers. The body is a light, but these flavours persist. Dries as it goes.

Can shared by Jay at MaxxDaddy’s tasting. Pours dark brown. Nose/taste of coffee, hops and water. Hints of diaper in the nose. Light watery body.

Lubiere (12704) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Dark brown with a foamy off-white head.Slightly malty nose with cardboard. Malts come out without much interest, slightly sweet notes, with signs of oxidation. Body is light to medium. Uninteresting.

Sammy (10891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
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.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2003
Sweet malty aroma, nice dark brownish red colour, Sweet with a bit of a roasty finish. Thin body. Not mind blowing but I could easily polish off a pint or two of this in a night.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 21, 2012
Can courtesy of John at Half Time, which I brought totasting at Max’s for Sam’s visit. Pours a dark black with a thin to medium sized tan head. Smells of paper and roast. Light coffee and dirty things. Coffee, but watered down and greasy. Finishes up with some roast and watered down cocoa. Meh.

DuffMan (9284) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
Very dark brown colour with a thick tan head. The aroma is lightly chocolatey, milk chocolate, dark toasted malts and a hint of light roast. A bit of caramelly character in the nose as well. Sweet toasty flavour, deep rich chocolatey malts. Lingering earthy finish with a soft bitterness. Really more a porter than a brown ale, but it’s tasty, no matter what you call it.

Bottled - Smokeless Joes Toronto. i do wish brown ales would come themselves brown rather than dark. I was hoping for a black beer but got a mid brown schwarzbier like tasting beer. Not unpleasant and had some nutty qualities but nowt special.
