A connoisseur's dark ale with a malty, nutty complexity and layers of flavour.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Solid strong beer with a pretty complex malty flavour and an alcoholic bite. Wouldn’t drink large amounts of it, but it’s well worth trying.

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with a very thin light tan head. Mild caramel thats nuitty with good malting. The mouth is full and rich with dark fruits, complex sugars and a slight hopsy bitter. A great brew.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2007
Bottle: Pours clear dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of light sweet carmels and roasted malts, which follow through to the initial taste. Found a bit of a alcohol finish at the end. Overall, a nice beer, but I probably won’t have it again.

A damn fine strong ale. A bit of sour apples and alcohol in the aroma. A complex maltiness hits you right up front followed by a bit of alcohol and a bit of hops and alcohol in the finish. The color is a dark red, almost mahogany and the carbonation is damn near perfect by my standards (light to fair medium).

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2007
Sweet smell, almost like banada or pear. Darker brown in colour, fizzy & decent head. Weak initial taste with a kick of alcohol. Sweet but unidentifiable. Overall decent but nothing special.

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Yet another over-rated beer from this very average brewery. This is up there with Tankhouse for an allegedly flavourable ale, but both are thin, lacking malts, depths of flavours and seem almost too fizzy for an english ale. Give me a Fullers or John Bull any day or even a Belgian ale for big alcohol content with way more flavour. Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale has more alcohol & way more flavour than this. This does have caramel and is sweet, but needs more malts to round it out.
