Great dark ale that is flavourful but not overwhelmingly so. Nice clean aroma and a wonderful smooth taste. One of my favourite Ontario dark ales.

Pours a mahogany red colour with a light golden head. Nice toasted nut and caramel tasted with a smooth mouth feel. Creamy middle with a nice hoppy feel and taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark copper with reddish hues and large light tan head. Aroma of malts, nutty, and a creamy aroma. Taste of malts, caramel, slightly nutty, creamy mouthfeel, slight hop presence in the middle. Everything blends together excellent on this beer. Very good for this style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a cask this is just stunning. Vinous and deep with a good deep structure which well balances the malt and the hops. Bitterness holds out in the end but any way you slice it this is a faithful and majestical rendition of a traditional British style.
Remember, go cask. bNot bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can. Pours a clear dark brown with tan coloured head. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, faint caramel and cereal notes. Light bodied, and slightly watery with cocoa, straw, faint molasses, hard water notes and faint bitterness. A little thin on flavour, body, and way too much carbonation. Not at all like I remember it.

Tried this beer at a restaurant with Steak and Waffle Fries. It was the perfect compliment. Was really surprised what a clean crisp taste it had. Recommend to anyone.

Bottle. Brown amber, tan head. Sweet aroma of molasses, burnt sugar, vanilla, slightly leafy. Light and oily. Sweet with a slight bitter finish. Nothing too exciting, but itís drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours red with a thick white head. Rich malty aroma, like burnt caramel. A bit thin. Nice chocolate flavour late in the palate. Malty and drinkable but severely lacking in body. Iím not looking for it to be as thick as stout, But, this stuff is as thin as a pilsener. Tastes nice but a little dull.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from LCBO. Pours clear dark, reddish brown. Nutty roasty aroma. Taste is nutty, toasty, creamy, with a slightly metallic hoppy finish. A good brown ale (it is a brown ale in my opinion, despite the fact that it is categorized as an English Pale Ale here).
