3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Tap at welly, pours a clear dark brown colour. the taste was of a light mix of dark roasty malts. To me this one was more of a brown ale. it was pretty easy drinking. This didnt have the typical earthy taste that is common in EPA’s but this one was very nice and easy to drink

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée-brune et claire. Nez de malt rôti doux, moyen de caramel, léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes de chocolat noir et des petites traces de toffee brûlé et de fruits (cerises noires). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture aux notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Petites notes fruitées (cerises noires) accompagné de traces de fumée de bois lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt moyennement rôti et aux petites notes brûlées, un léger goût de caramel avec de faibles traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de rôti et léger de houblon herbeux avec des petites traces de noix asséchantes.

100th rating! cask at the wooly. Deep dark ruby colour, bubbly head. Aroma of malts, wood, dark fruit, a little roast. Taste is rich malts, cherries, wood and earth. More intense, sharp flavour in the bottle, much more mellow and sessionable on cask. Nice beer.

473ml can. Tan brown ale with little head and almost no lace. aromas of caramel, sweet chocolate and is somewhat quiet.This ale makes me think it is macro-filtered as well. Taste seems to have been striped of flavour. I’m done with this brew.

Bottle sample. Pours a dark brown colour, with surprisingly good lace. Aroma was carmalized malt as was the flavor. I would have this again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at M-B’rgur in Toronto. Poured a nice rich dark brown with a pillowy tan head. Aroma was ripe fruit, sweet molasses and spice. First sip was roasty slightly burnt malts and a little caramel. The finish was also of roasted malt but had a slightly hoppy taste to the end. A tad thin.
