COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The dark chocolate appearance is reminiscent of a porter, and the slightly darkened creamy head tops the look. But the first sip lets you know that this beer can be drank, in quantity if desired (or required?), without leading to an overly full gullet. Intricate malt flavors predominate, with a medium mouth-feel and a very light bitter.

Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store
Brown color with medium sized head. Immediate aroma of caramel, dark bread, some spices, dust. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is rather dry; the flavor focuses on the dark caramel, followed by a light spicy touch, rye bread, dust; ending with moderate to strong bitterness and light astringency.
Nothing special, but could be ok with food.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
Hazelnut brown colour. Nutty, chocolatey aroma. The flavour is moderate for a strong ale, and certainly I’d hope for bigger if I wanted to survive a Yukon winter. It’s a little chocolatey, with hints of nuts and light coffee notes.

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
A clear brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a smooth and powdery chocolate malt with nutty notes, and a touch of licorice. In mouth, a nice sweet nutty malt with chocolate notes, roasted notes, a bit peaty. Nice. Shared with GRM. Merci Sylvain.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Roasty aroma, pours blackish withs oem white head and lace drops in glass following drinking up. Mollasses, licorice and some coffee grounds so characteristics of a porter, a brown, an old ale. Above average carbonation.Very decent

JoeMcPhee (8575) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark brown beer with a slightly ruby tint. Thick rocky dark tan coloured head. The head fades back leaving a thick lacing around the glass. Vanilla and chocolate aromas leap out of the glass along with some fruity esters that seem to be present in all of this brewery’s beers. Flavour features bitter chocolate, vanilla, some coffee and is followed by a hint of astringency and bitterness before you get hit by a warming alcoholic finish. Truly premium stuff.

This one is indeed their lead dog…Good dark chocolate bitterness from the malt and creamy body…Not an achievement, but a nice drink…

Dark brown witha moderate tan head. Aroma is dark roasty malt, and the flavour has delicious chocolatey notes and sweet malt. Slightly roasty bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant way to start things off. Mondiale 3T (Me).
