A dark ruby red-brown ale with a distinctive coffee-chocolate character. Don't let the dark color and robust flavor fool you--it's a medium bodied beer with a clean finish.

Reimer96 (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
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.

Malted, butty flavour, with hints of caramel stemming from a similar nose. Light palate. Tasty brown ale overall.

Pours a reddish brown with a bit of white head. Smell is mostly malty with a bit of a sour note, almost cherry. Palate is light to medium bodied and has fairly low carbonation. Taste is interesting, a bit sweet at first but then quickly going to some soft hoppy bitterness with a bit of sourness and a shorter bitter aftertaste. Interesting brew!

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
341ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and coffee with some herbal notes. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with hints of coffee and a herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied with some good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Acceptable brew for the style but not spectacular.

It was okay for a Brown Ale. Nothing special. I did like the nose but it wasn’t as alive in the mouth as I would have hoped.

gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Dark brown, pretty clear, good off-white head and lace. Smell is malty, kind of sour. Tastes are vanilla, chocalte maltiness, and a bit of a sour finish. The mouthfeel was pretty full and creamy, went down smooth, had some good carbonation. I’d try this one again, but not spectacular.

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
Pours a clear very dark brown colour with no head. Aroma is of roasted grain malts, bread, hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is slightly dry and bitter with a reasonable sweetness to it. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. A nice brown ale, unique but nothing spectacular.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2010
341 ml bottle. From Calgary, AB, Canada.
Dark reddish brown colour with small tan head. Roasted dark malt, chocolate and some coffee in aroma. Quite crisp roasted malt, some bitter hops and mild chocolate and coffee in flavour. Fizzy.

Pours a rich reddish brown with nice foamy head. Some aromas are toast, coffee, alcohol. Most beers of theirs I’ve had have been reasonably subdued but this one goes big. Toasty malts, dry sweetness, lingering herbaceous bitterness. I found the carbonation a little harsh though, and honestly, it was a little watery.
