Not as brown as I was lead to believe, maybe brown is different in Morocco. More of a light rust smelling of caramel, basement, roast malts and nuts. It has a light sweetness about it, owing to a maple syrup flavour and toasted nuts. A medium body with relaxed carbonation and a nice tasty sipper.

On tap at Irene’s. Pours dark. Slight aroma of malt. Tastes of malt, molasses, allspice and cinnamon with a long bitter finish.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
The colour came as a real surprise on this brew as it was more of a reddish brown. Aroma was of musty old basement, roasted malts, and nuts. Tasted nutty, with hints of caramel and a sweetness that was hard to put my finger on. Had a good medium body. Not a bad beer, but I was hoping for more.

jksipa (287) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy deep orange brown with a small tan head that clings to the glass. Nose is bread and sweet malt and dark fruit. Sweet with notes of spice that I would not have identified as cinnamon without reading the description. Slightly watery body with a quite short dry finish.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with light dry fruits with some light spices including cinnamon are also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by cinnamon with some caramel malt with medium residual sugar notes and some dry fruits notes also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting mix of flavours but lacking a bit fo integration to make it truly remarkable.
