Jokine (51) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Aroma is of very light malt and some wheat. Very light bodied, but with plenty of flavour. Sweet at the forefront with vanilla. Fades into a more bareley wheaty flavour and finishes quite dry with little aftertaste.

Strangebrewer (865) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
bottle. Poured dark brown with a thin creamy tan head. Sweet nutty and roasted aroma. Medium bodied, light carbonation, a nice session. Roasty almost burnt malt flavour with an herbal/leafy note, fruity-tart lingering finish.

dreamflower (580) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Head quickly disappates but the colour is a rich mahogany. The aroma is pleasant and oaky. Flavour is lightly sweet. Nice.

Centerface (1) - Ottawa, - JUN 29, 2013 does not count
A pretty strong ale verging on tasting like a stout. Wasnít thick like a stout though and went down very smooth. I also it found it had some sweet caramel tones to it

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
6-pack purchased at a Liquor Depot in Banff, AB on 09/01/2012. Colour: medium brown with high creamy head. Nose: lightly roasted malt accompanied by skunk weed, day old brown bread, and something nutty. Taste: medium-light sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. Cooked caramelization is forefront, then heaps of extremely chewy malted barley. A touch of cardboard late which doesnít add to allure. Much more malty than most ales.

TheBeerGod (5263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Mahogany pour with a short tan head. Aroma is nutty and malty with caramel notes, light toffee and dark bread. Taste is caramel, sweet malt, toasted dark bread, toffee, sweet nuttiness and earthy hops. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, toffee, earthy hops, nutty notes and sweet, toasted malt.

bhensonb (11120) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours brown with a fizzy/foamy light tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty malt and floral. Actually makes me think of cola. Med body. Flavor is slightly roasty malt and mostly floral. Itís not truly dry, but itís not very sweet. Flavor is still sort of towards cola, with a light touch of chocolate and some light stone fruit. And floral. Best part, perhaps, itís a brown with very little, if any, greasy nuttiness. And then I found it. Still, itís well integrated. Gonna drink it.

Braudog (5750) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Deep, ruby red, virtually opaque. The head is thin and giving, but firm. This is a quite easy-to-drink brew ... quite unoffending in any way. The base is a slightly caramel-tinged biscuit, with a hazelnut twist. Good job. (#5517, 5/20/2014)

RumRunner101 (772) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours an amber/brown. Aroma is toffee, raisin, nuts. Flavour is the same with a light roasted note. Pleasantly smooth and easy drinking.

DerWeg (1495) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
Clear dark brown pour with small tan head. Gentle toffee-nutty aromas that are sweet and play into flavors. Quaffable palate and lightly sweet pleasing finish. Very light and clean, could drink a tankard.
