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

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
