3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A delicious brown ale. Aroma was roasted malt with a hint of biscuit, graham cracker and chocolate. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was roasty and good. Roasted malt with a little chocolate and slightly grassy. Mildly hoppy finish with some bitter roasted malt lingering. Nice carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. pours deep copper-brown with a red tinge and a lasting film of cream. Nose is dry cocoa, dark toast, coffee, prickly green herb and caramel. Flavors of molasses, graham cracker, lightly soured cocoa and green herb. A nice small touch of char and ash on the long finish. Light-medium body is to the sweet side as a good brown should be, but has a nice drinkable balance. Medium carbonation

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque sable with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Roast malt dominates the aroma while sharing the stage with earthy, fresh malt, and subtle woody hop notes. Flavor is mainly malt, both fresh and roasted; hoppy and earthy hints make themselves known. Texture is fairly firm, if none too fizzy. Nothing like a fresh roast!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arômes de chocolat, noix grillée, anis, bois, écorce d’orange. En bouche, chocolat au lait, noisettes, céréales, malt rôtie. Un peu de zeste d’orange. Texture plutôt légère. Corps moyennement rond et crémeux. Bonne effervescence. Le goût se compare plus à une oatmeal stout qu’une brown ale
