3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011-03-16, draught at Pat’s Pub, Vancouver, 6-4-6-3-13=32
Dark brown color; creamy head. Served too cold, it has a light caramel and roasted malt aroma. Smooth texture; with roasted malt flavor, a bit dusty, and late caramel; light residual sweetness too. Correct bitterness, with a bit more roasty touch in the end. Not bad.
2011-03-04, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 6-4-6-3-13=32
Dark chestnut color with some amber shades; creamy head. Classic aroma of the dirty water from the Vancouver city service; very light caramel and apples too. The body is leaner than expected; dry mouthfeel, caramel flavor, with a light ending minty touch; correct bitterness. Just another Brown Ale. Balanced but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown. Nutty with a little caramel as well. Caramel accent on the palate, and a little nutty. It’s consistent, I’ll give it that. It is actually a more interesting beer than I expected it to be.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better bottles I had in B.C. Only 30 IBU yet good taste from roast and significant smoke. Though a small head on dark brown, good lacing. A decent mouthfeel. Decent drinkability, a bomber was too much for me. Carbonation is right there, and toning that aspect down would have increased smoothness and drinkability to above average for each. Some complexity. Mildly acidic in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-06-18. Dark ruby tinged brown body, good sized brown head. 4+ Modest aroma, roasty-toasty malt with touches of cocoa and nuts. Flavour is similar, dry toasty malt with mild sweet caramel malt touches. Dry finish. Average plus bodied palate. Decent, but just okay. A bit more of the malty sweetness would be more to my liking.

Bottle. Deep russet brown, thick light brown head. Aroma is of dark caramel, with hints of dark fruits. Flavour is a dark caramel with a rummy quality to it, also raisins and light wood. Rum & raisin ice cream came to mind. Medium bodied, nicely flavoured.
