Clear red - brown beer with a good pale tan head. Smooth palate, dry. Smooth malt, trace of caramel. Belgian like Coca Cola flavour. Traces of marmite and raisin. Dry finish, with a little spice.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy light amber-brown, light sugary nose, some big molasses taste, with barrelly notes. Rich, lingering complex molasses character, the alcohol just enough to cut through this. Tasty.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pretty dark brown with a 1/4 inch beige head. Lots of rum and treacle in the aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is massively treacle with rum and some citrus and arguably pear. It burns slightly. I’m thinking this massively flavorful ale will age well. Brilliant concoction.

Tmoney99 (10805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy wood, dark sugar & toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were exceeded.

hopscotch (9221) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle… Clear brown ale with flashes of burnt orange and a small, creamy, white head. The nose offers a strange marriage of fruitcake, toffee, cotton candy and crusted port. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is sweet and port-like with a caramel component and some harsh, boozy notes. Finishes alcoholic and sweet. Strange for a brown ale. Quite interesting for a beer.

22oz bottle. Poured a deep amber, almost brown color with an off white head. Aromas of caramel, molasses, earth, some roast, and some chocolate. Tastes of molasses, earth, rum, caramel, root beer, and wood.
