jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
2014-04-04. Dark brown body with a small frothy beige head. 3+ Aroma is sweetly malty, lightly toasty roast malt. Flavour is similar, sweetish malt core with pleasant toasty malt accents, light dusty touches and mild caramel touches throughout. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent take on the style but just okay. Bottle several months old from the LCBO.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Coffee, nutty and a touch of Chocolate. Carmel and malt to finish it off. Not a bad mix, but not really a ESB, more like a brown.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Light brown, sweetish, not much taste, just a little brown sugar, touch of caramel, bit thin. Bottom line: If I was locked in a hotel room and fed this for 15 years, I’d definitely want to kill some people.

jtclockwork (7110) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown with tan head. Nose is tomato, coffee and light roast. Taste is coffee, burnt toast and toasted nuts. Some vegetal notes in finish. Lighter medium body.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a thin fizzy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of sweet malts, nuts, mild caramel notes. The taste is nuts, toffee, molasses, mild fruity notes. Thin bodied.

DedicatedToFun (2002) - Santa Monica, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Decent old ale, ran across a bomer of this at peabodys in boone and it’s pretty good overall

RD400F (158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle to glass...aroma is caramel, butterscotch, coffee...taste is coffee, slight caramel, lots of roasted/toasted malt but mouthfeel is on the watery and thin side. Not bad, but not my favorite.

slimspady (166) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2013
Decent brown ale. Little bitter in the finish. Some maltiness but pretty thin in the taste. Average.
