2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Chocolately aroma. Pours dark reddish-brown with a one finger sienna head that does not last. Very strong buttery nut taste with a powerful malt palate, cant taste the cocoa. Below average brown ale overall.

Clear amber pour with reddish tinge and small white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and earthy presence. Taste of malts, slight caramel, slight nuttiness. Thin mouthfeel, medium carbonation, nothing special about this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a six pack I picked up in Calgary. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma: burnt nuts, coffee, raisins. Palate: medium thickness, oily, watery finish. Slightly carbonated. Taste: fairly sweet, slightly astringent finish. Very strong burnt nuts flavour. Kinda unpleasant overall.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was presented to me as a premium beer and it was anything but. A very weak brown ale at best. A murky brown pour with very little head. Aromas of nuts and sweet malt were backed up by a little caramel. The flavour was slightly sour and acidic with only the malt coming though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear reddish/dark brown with a nice frothy tan head that leaves some decent lace. Aroma is nutty, dark chocolate, light roasted malts, toffee and a mild coffee. Flavour is coffee, dark chocolate, a mild bitterness, roasted malts, and a mild sweetness. Very session-able beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clean brown color with a touch of ruby highlights and a pillowy, light tan head. Aroma has lot of brown malt, light toasted nose, some light chemical nose late. Flavor is not good. The brown malt mixes with something and produces a really gross chemical, acidity that hits first and last almost the entire tasting. Once it subsides, some light toasted bready and chocolate flavors seep in. Body is light with a low amount of carbonation and a bit of dryness too it. Overall a pretty bad beer in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ the brewery. Not sure if it was actually this good but it really stood out after sampling their lighter beers. Complex taste is malty with bittersweet chocolate and an indistinct fruitiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark brown with a ruby red hue and a light brown frothy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and cocoa. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee up front with a light bitterness on the finish. Body is light to light medium. Really sessionalble beer but overall is a bit thin for the style.
