Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2010
Fairly dark....can barely see through it, very faint red tinge. Nose: Immediate wet log, then some ash. Not overly complex. Taste: Very mild barley and lots ash everywhere. Dusty. Thin upfront but starts to speak late with some very high percentage cocoa. Finish is surprisingly short and carbonation is not as high as some other Tin Whistle Beers, but slight lack of balance is common place.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Nice lightish brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Mild aroma (no pun) of malt, light caramel and a touch of nuts. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt with some light pitted fruits and a minor bit of vanilla. Aftertaste is pretty subdued with only sugars coming through and perhaps a touch of malt and nuts. Overall, a pretty unoffensive beer and one that shows relatively well - not bad by any means, just not sublime. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased a few days earlier at Sherbrooke Liquors in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, sampled at the Banff Springs hotel in Banff, Alberta on 30-December-2008.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2010
Pours almost black with a thin head. Aroma is mild and smokey. Very smooth a little lacking in body. but it has a nice malty flavour followed with a strong dry smokey flavour. There must be some smoked malt in this. I like the effort this is a very cool beer. But a little dull and like i said, weak in body.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2010
Smells lightly of malts and spring water. Fairly clear, not too much head or lacing, dark brownish where it’s thick. Tastes of malts as well, not too much else, a bit of coffee in the end of the palate but otherwise it’s very clean tasting. I thought it would be much bolder tasting with the a name like that! It’s certainly palatable, but too thin for my palate.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
I bought this beer because it says mild ale clearly on the label... Well I guess that style tick will have to wait until later. Pours a dark brown with a small ring of a head. The aroma is of musty hops, toffee, and grain grist. The flavor is sweet, tinny, and odd. This beer just doesn’t do it for me... Just doesn’t find any balance through out the entire palate. Never again.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2009
A very nice dark (brown?) ale, but sadly, no information from the brewer on the label. Good pour and aroma; clear appearance, and quite acceptable taste. I’d drink this again.

Cirrhosis (1196) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2009
This beer pours a very dark brown almost black with a hint of red around the outside edges of the glass, the cap was non existent I even tried to produce some by doing a straight dump into my glass but no head could be made. The beer smells very strange to me for the style, sweet taffy and vanilla is what I notice most. The taste was strange, very sour with hints of cherries there was also a diffanent smoked flavor to it, there might be some smoked malts involved. The flavor seems held back and masked by the sourness of the beer but yet it didn’t feel dry. And I also can’t figure out why the smell is completely different then the taste. Not a bad brew but I don’t think I’ll be picking it up again.

Gethinbeer (2120) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
From bottle. Fruit, malt and brown sugar in the aroma. The beer is very clear. Nut brown in colour with a thin white head. Thin texture, earthy but has a metallic finish.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2008
[1115-20080223] 650mL (w/ jerc). Dark roasted malt aroma has hints of sweet molasses and chocolate. Clear, Very dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Sweet oatmeal and toasted malt grain flavour with peat-like earthy undertones. Medium-full body. Simple but good.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2008
First thing I thought of when I smelled this was burnt popcorn. Kind of an odd off flavor. Non-existent head. Little ma;ty, but mostly just smooth and a little flavorless. Kind of underwhelming.
