No idea how this rating system will work for me and my brews. This is my first. Nice dark ale that doesn't taste all that dark. Very little head. Lightly carbonated? Not a lot of after taste for me. Some people notice chocolate, but for some reason I don't notice the chocolate. Lightly roasted I agree with. Very easy to drink. I find my rating's will be consistent with my other beer club, which may make it confusing for some. I give it 3/5, meaning it's a good beer but I probably won't buy it again for whatever reason. If it was put in front of me, I'd have no problem slamming this 650ml bottle back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma : rich malt aroma with some light hop aroma Taste : some dry malt character that has some licorice and bitterness at finish. The rich opening flavors do diminish alot faster than desired Appearance : very dark amber with a fairly poorly retained head

650ml bottle pours a brown color with a small beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of light roasted malts with hints of chocolate and some grassy hops. Taste is light roasty malted bitterness with some grassy hop bitterness and an underlying mild chocolate sweetness. Light to medium body with some nice carbonation. I really enjoyed this ale and like the new label as well.

Lagerboy (1832) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Clear dark copper, small tan head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel burnt malt taste, balanced with a medium hop bitterness, not much else. Finishes burnt and bitter. A ’not so mild ale’. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

The pour is a dark brown, mostly opaque with a finger of beige head and some spotty lacing. The nose has a sweet, roasty malt with a surprising hop note. Notes of cocoa, wood, roast and biscuits. The taste is quite mild with a hint of cocoa and roasty malts, light wood and subtle dark fruits. A nutty caramel malt and a mild grassy hop finish with light bitterness. A medium body with a sticky, chewy motuhfeel. overall, this is an average brown ale.

DeanF (2223) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
Nice amber-black body and a decent dark beige head. Aroma is grass and barley, like it may have been a vegetable brew. Flavour is a slightly sweet barley with hints of grass. Better than some stuff by Tin Whistle, but I can’t say I’ve been impressed by this brewer to any stretch.

RobBestwick (783) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottled. Rich, dark chocolate and nutty aroma. Pours with a black hue and off-white head. Very rich, dark chocolate, nutty flavour. Rich, syrupy texture and malty finish. Good stuff.
