RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, - 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.

AgentAle (403) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2014
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

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
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 (1070) - 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)

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2011
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 (1628) - Nunavut, 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.

Nice hoppy dark ale. Pours nicely, looks nice. Bittersweet taste. Bitter finish.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2010
dark brown color. Rich nose of caramel, brown malts. Malty, decent complexity.

Powertrip (998) - 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.
