3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Imbibe: pours a dark clear brown with a decent 2 finger cap. Aroma is grainy-roasty, sweet with some fruit and an earthy funk. Medium bodied, mild carbonation. Flavour is slightly sweet without being cloying, enough hop presence to make the fuity sweetness work, the roastiness comes out in the finish where it dries slightly. I like brown ales and this one stands out for its delicate dark fruitinss and light spicing. A good quaffer, I’ll be back for more.

[4571-20120623] Tap. Fruity light banana malt tang aroma. Hazy, dark red amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Toasted fruity malt flavour has just a hint of banana syrup. Medium body. Interesting to sample. (6/3+/6/3/14) 3.2

The beer pours a semi-translucent brownish-red colour with a thin tan ring for a cap. The aroma is nutty malt, spices, and fruit. Almost christmasy aroma. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is sweet malt, some caramel, and a very bitter chocolate finish. The raisins are definitely shining through the flavour.

Really like this. On tap at beer bros. pours muddy brown with minimal head and lots of lacing. Nose is fig and dark fruit with a hint of molasses. Aromas are same with some extra nutty notes. Taste is light sweet. Mouth is pretty light, much less body than I’d like, but makes it an easy drinker. Low ish carbonation.

Tried twice in T.O. Grey Cup 2012. Dark brown. Super spicy and malty but either the season or the spice seemed like a Moroccan Spiced Pumpkin beer.

Lots of fig and round spice in the taste, next to crisp hops, fruit middle with pale and toasty malts, finish dry-sweet with a slightly heavy-sweet body. Enjoyed it.
