3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Iím 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-Bírgur 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.

Diolch yn fawr JoeMcPhee. Amber/Mahogany colour with a thin white dissipating lace. Rich malt aroma. Crisp fresh bitter flavour. Rich malt. Very nice, classic dark bitter ale. Lovely.

Pours dark brown with a beige head, aroma is malty with hint of alcohol. Lightly sweet taste with a lightly bitter finish. A very pleasant full feeling in the mouth, creamy, nice malty flavour with hints of dark chocolate and dark coffee aftertaste. I quite like this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty tasting beer with a bit of a metallic taste though that possibly could have come from the can. Nevertheless, pretty mediocre dark ale. Did not dislike it but also did not inspire me to buy it again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark coppery body and beige bubbly quick-to-dissipate head. Aroma is pleasant with notes of cocoa / malts. Flavour is thinly chocolaty with metallic undertone, bitterness of hops come through quite nicely in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a bore: Watery, kinda flat... Slightly above average, very forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 The smell has hints of resin,leaves and spruce not very powerful but they are there, appearance is a clear light to dark amber (depending how you have it to the light) with a very minimal head, the taste of this beer is nice. Mild bitterness, mildly hoppy, leaves the taste buds wanting more, unfortunately it doesnít totally satisfy that thirst you want from an english pale ale but it is a notch better than most EPA.
