3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle to tulip glass, the beer pours a dark reddy brown with hardly any head which fades rapidly. Aroma is very faint but has notes of butterscotch, caramel, brown sugar, and a bit of grass. The taste and palate are where this beer really shine as it’s sweet with notes of caramel and toffee but well balanced by grassy and spicy hops. Carb is medium, body medium thin, very drinkable beer. Overall...saving grace? The other beers I tried from these guys weren’t very good but this one is quite nice.

65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via coop. Ruby brown, caramel root beer aroma. Sweet, then balanced hops. Medium finish. Quite drinkable, not that memorable though.

Poured from oversized bottle. Clear dark brown with a quickly fading tan head. Notes of toasted malt, bread, and coffee on the nose. Flavour is subtle burnt malts, oak, caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. Light body. Medium carbonation. Overall too muted for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1010 - March 1st, 2014 - On a #blinddate at Beer Revolution. Should never take skanks to a beer bar I like. Light brown amber pour with a bubbly tan foam with little retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, vanilla, oak, honey. Taste is quite sweet at first, prolonged oaky vanilla, light tobacco, toffee sweetness and the presence of oak in the body. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Very nice medium-full body, mild alcohol note on the palate which is typical for the style, and lots of rich sweetness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ambré sombre avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt avec un peu de tourbe. Le goût est pareil avec un peu de sucre. C’est un peu mince pour le style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really decent, flavorful scotch ale. Looks like a Newcastle Brown Ale. Aroma is slightly sour, very malty, lots of toast. Good flavor - nutty, some brown sugar, heavy malt, with a little bit of sweetness reminiscent of something like Gulden Draak (though nearly as sweet). Palate is great - low carbonation, nice and smooth. Worth trying.
