GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear deep brown/black with nearly no white head. Smell is super sweet brown sugar and nothing else. Palate is light bodied with average carbonation. Taste is bland at first then gets a sweet kick that lingers and dissipates over time. One note that’s not great, but it’s not objectively bad.. czar (8996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
pours clear copper-light brown with a very small light beige head, little retention. caramel malts, cheap almost burnt cereals, some nuttiness, minerals, metallic notes, peppery-spicy, some chocolate and toffee. soft carbonation, light body, slightly harsh grassy finish.

Pours like dark earth in a glass. More honest than most. Maybe not not as hip then the last beer you had but that’s probably why it’s good. lukin (621) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
bottle. Pours dark brown, zero head, looks more like a cola than a beer. Aroma is nice; light roast, some vanilla, wood/earth. Very thin palate, the taste has some sweet sugar and raisin notes to go with the burnt/roast. Decent. thorongil2 (2996) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
(bottle) clear brown colour with a small brown head; aromas of vanilla, roast; dry, pleasant flavour with a long light bitter finish; thin palate; more like a dry stout than a brown ale; nice

Bottle from the LCBO. Ruby-brown with a thin but fairly healthy looking tan head. Aroma is nice - toasted nuts, bit of raisin, brown sugar (very slightly burnt), a hint of dried leaves. Flavour follows, with the toasted nuts being quite prominent, along with some dry cocoa, a suggestion of tart blackcurrant, and a subtly hopped finish. Body is a bit thinner than I normally like for the style, but still OK. Not the most thrilling beer - a bit workmanlike, really - but given the name, perhaps that’s fitting. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours dark brown. Some hops and some but aroma with coffee. A little heAD, no lacing. Finishes bitter. Bottle. dandeman (972) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
Aroma: Fruity malt accents like raisins and field berries with roasted notes of milk chocolate and a bit of caramel and brown sugar. Very interesting nose.
Appearance: Brown with red glints, mostly clear, small creamy head but persistent. Lacing is fading rapidly.
Taste: Attack is pretty roasted with notes of roasted grain. Not chocolate or coffee but roasted cereals. Farmyard taste. Also field berries and blackcurrant. Mouth feel is thin and watery but soft. Interesting roasted bitterness and wonderful nose are the characteristics of this beer. Few hoppy notes. BreWedge (531) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark but clear brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are of chocolate, nuts, and barnyard. Taste is dry roasty malt and nutty bitterness. Light carbonation with an upfront bitter bite and a short finish. Not an overly complex beer. Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
