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.

Raistlin (315) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours dark caramel with a large, fluffy tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of chocolate, coffee and toasted malts along with bread, nuts, earth, pine and herbs. The flavour starts out slightly sweet and soon acquires a moderate bitterness accompanied by notes of roasted malts and coffee. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is not a bad ale. It has a nice malt profile with toasted malts and roasted coffee.

Franckg (1279) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
Canette bue en septembre 2014. Très légère. Goût de noisettes grillées, caramel, cassonade. Un petit arôme chocolaté s’installe en finale. Gros bof.

jksipa (800) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
Can from the LCBO. Clear dark reddish brown under a one finer off white head. Nose is brown sugar, toast, dark fruit. Light sweet with a lighter bitterness and a bit of nuttiness. Mouth is slick but a little thin wit average carbonation. Decent enough.

KoNrRiI (1229) - 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 (1095) - 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.

gregorymconway (216) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
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 (12923) - 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.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
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 (518) - 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.
