On tap at Pub Italia in Ottawa. The color is a dark brown very little head. THe aroma and taste is of malt . Also in the taste is a swwet taste of caramel. The finish is bitter but not to much.

Bottle from secret santa. Some peanut brittle in the aroma with light caramel. Taste is awfully thin and doesn’t have too much flavor -- maybe a touch of anise and some nuts -- but otherwise is a very easy drinker. Nothing too exciting here, though I wouldn’t mind throwing a few of these back.

12oz bonus via Puzzl. Pours dark brown with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and nutty. Taste is sweet with some nice chewy malts, basically a brown ale, with a bit of oomph.

Barnabus (52) - Niagara, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle from the Brewery. Chestnut brown with fizzy light brown head. Aroma is of malt, caramel and strong coffee with a very similar taste. Palate is fizzy and light to medium. It has a short, slightly bitter finish and, while enjoyable, is overall nothing too special.

Another brew from Matt7215! Pours a dark brown color, small head. Aroma is kind of weak but maybe some sweet fruits. Taste is dry. Malty and a hint of nuttiness (just like the commercial description says). Easy to drink. This is my first English Strong Ale that I know of....Its not half bad. Thanks again matt for all the beers.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma reminded me of that of a Dubbel. It was malty and full of some nuts and fruits. It was smooth and flavorable and bettered as it got closer to room temperature. very impressed with this ale.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2008
Pours a chestnut/cola like color. Aroma is invitingly roasted, with hints of dried dark fruits, coffee, a slight smoke note perhaps. Flavor is really nice, with a slight sweetness balancing out the roasted notes. Very solid.
