Sammy (10882) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 Balanced, satisfactory with food. Bit of bitterness works, bit of carbonation and head. Nice aroma and dark colour and brown bottle. Understated cocoa, coffee, nutty. Tea finish. Also Had on tap and much smoother, even some hops.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2005 Re-rate Draft. Dark ruby amber, small beige head. Sweet malty aroma with muted roast and nuttiness. Flavour is slightly nutty at times, sweetly malty with a moderate hop bitterness. Average palate. Quite quaffable and a nice session beer. Wellington’s better beers are somewhat underappreciated in this regard I think. 6+/3/7/3/14-15 <P>Original RatingOn cask at Cest What - Subtle going down, very strong very good aftertaste sneaks up on you. Touch of Bitter.. 7/3/7/4/15
