3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 doesn’t of enough of anything. It’s 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 I’ve 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.
