COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle - You have got to get this stuff fresh as it makes all the difference in the world with this beer in particular. I am going to rate the fresh beer I tasted not the horrible old crap that I drained down my sink. Pours out ruby brown with a very small beige head. Smells sweet choco puff. mmm breakfast. The flavor is thin and coco and sugary (with flemish like funk when past it’s prime) that when fresh is almost like a rose flavor. Interesting only if you can sample to see if it Jekle or Hyde on tap.

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.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Medium brown-amber, balanced roasted malt and herbal malt aroma. Sweet, dark chocolate flavour that is taken over by an herbal hop and soy. Finish is smokey.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
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.

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.

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.

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
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.

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.
