A little bitter, with coffee and nuts hangin out having a good time. Not a great time, but chattering while watching the telly. Is it better than 94% of beers in its class? Nope. But it’s fine, a solid effort. Not exactly an EPA but moreso than an English Brown, so I guess this is the right place for it.

KoNrRiI (862) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2015
0.5 tap. Clear, brown color with a crimson tinge and virtually no head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts, brown sugar, delicate hints of nuts and wood. Taste is lightly sweet: caramel, dark malts, a tad of sugar. Light body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is soft and generally follows the taste. Overall a very tacky brew, nothing special.

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
473ml can. Pours a clear dark caramel/ruby with a finger, off white head that thins to a film. Aroma has great notes of dark fruits, mild roast and dark chocolate, and some breadyness. Taste is balanced. Caramel, hint of roast, dark chocolate, toasted bread, and a short finish. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a wort, slightly creamy mouth feel. Overall pretty tasty. I’ve had it before but I don’t remember it being this good.

473ml can from the LCBO. Deep brown body with some subtle red tints and a big creamy beige head. Beautiful spotty lacing coats the glass. Some chocolate, fig and wood on the nose. Some plum is subtle. Some hop presence rounds out the finish with lower to medium carbonation.

Ferris (8940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft - Caramel and dark sugars with a bit of raisin. Dark clear amber with a small beige head. Malty, toffee and a dark sugary finish. Nice and really malty.

My first beer from these guys and hopefully not the last. An impressive Brown that is a dark brown with ruby tints. It has a light tan head from which you can smell leather, nuts, roast malts and earthiness. It tastes like a more rustic Ferrero Rocher with a sweet, mild chocolate taste blended well with roasted malts. The bitter finish, medium creamy body and soft carbonation make it a pleasure to drink.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Can. She poured a dark ruby brown and had good head retention. Had a wonderful aroma of nuts, leathers, and earth. Tasted of light chocolate, nuts and had some sweetness, then finished up with a coffee bitterness. Had a good creamy medium body with some mild carbonation. All and all I was quite pleased with this brew.

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
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.

RhetoricalAns (666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
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.

Canmoore (344) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
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.
