Cask at C’est What with JoeMcPhee. Pours a reddish brown with minimal white head. Soft mouthfeel with notes of coffee and nutty malt. Simple, dark, and good. I like that.

not that bad but fairly boring overall. taste only has the lightest sense of bitterness. mech better than their pale ale at least.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours dark caramel with a large, fluffy tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of chocolate, coffee and toasted malts along with bread, nuts, earth, pine and herbs. The flavour starts out slightly sweet and soon acquires a moderate bitterness accompanied by notes of roasted malts and coffee. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is not a bad ale. It has a nice malt profile with toasted malts and roasted coffee. Would make a great session ale. 2011-10-08

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle purchased directly from the Wellington Brewery in Guelph. pours dark brown with a light tint of red. Thin white head. taste of chocolate, caramel and delicious malt. Almost like a porter. Quite enjoyable.

thorongil2 (1334) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
(can) clear dark amber with small tan head; aroma of stewed fruit, lightly roasty flavour, not bad but nothing exceptional. It came in a pack of 4 cans of different beers from this brewer - all tasted like the same beer with different amounts of water added... Sort of like Duff, Duff Light, and Duff Dry on the Simpsons....

reebtogi (4303) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
473mL can poured dark amber color with about a finger of white head and nice lacing. Quite a nice bouquet of aroma. Taste is malty sweet with a nice balance of hops. This is yet another canned beer that I rather enjoyed.

Nose: Egg whites, light roasted malt, red wine vinegar, hint of cherry. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Quite mild. Some icing sugar, mild malt. Just didn’t do it for me...

Reddish brown color, small tan head, aroma not discernible, medium carbonation, caramel-coffee taste, long finish with bitter coffee taste remaining on your palate. Good one.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
This pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that quickly vanishes to a thin ring. When you hold it to the light it has a ruby appearance to it. On the nose I am getting some light carmel notes but not really much else. The flavor is overpowering with sweetness. I am picking up some carmel and dark fruit, it has a real earthy feel to it, It has some hints of brown sugar as well. It has some decent elements but still comes up a little thin. It finishes with some roasted notes and a little hops. I find this to be lacking in some areas, it doesn’t have enough hop notes to balance out the amount of sweetness. I think with some reconfiguring this could be way better.

473ml can. Full bodied and smooth, with caramel flavour and a woodsy aftertaste, I liked it, but my wife thought it was too sweet and aftertaste was weird. Agree to disagree, so thumbs up from me.
