500ml can. Poured a very dark amber. Light malt and caramel aroma. Small, fizzy, off white head with a fair amount of lacing. Head fully diminished. Moderately sweet with a lightly bitter finish. Slightly oily texture and softly carbonated. Very nice.

Big can. Looks dark. Aroma of pale and caramel and light chocolate malts, hints of nuts, and light bitter notes. Flavor the same. Average texture. Very light all around.

Can. Pours dark amber brown with a thick rocky off-white head. Aroma is mostly roasted malt with some sweetness. Flavor is not overly strong with predominate taste of coffee. Body is a little thin.

Pours a dark brown, with a thin off white head. Aroma is of roasty malts, and some caramel and toffee. The taste is a little bland, but some caramel and coffee notes shine through. Not a bad little beer, but not spectacular neither.

Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Edges of the glass show orange. Aroma is subtle with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is thin as is the body. It tastes a little of roast malts and chocolate. Finish is smooth with a hint of roast grain astringency. It just doesnít of enough of anything. Itís light on flavour body and aroma. If one of those stepped up, I could like this a lot more.

Dark brownish pour, fairly chear, small head. Sweet malty aroma. Not getting much hops, just sweet caramel malt here. Not overly toasty or anything, so those looking for length of toast will have to look elsewhere. Easy drinking though, and it wont scare off your macro drinking friends.

As Iíve mentioned before, Wellington County beers are all over the map in quality. One can always hope that they get a good one, but there is no guarantee. The Wellington Dark is an example of one of their better efforts. A clear dark reddish brown colour, with a sweet malt aroma. The flavour is reminiscent of many other boring amber ales though.

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.
