This is a darker offering from Black Oak. Rich smooth taste, slightly roasty and chocolaty. It’s a bit less hopped, but still has a fantastic balance with the malt.

Pours a smooth dark brown, beautiful chocolate and roasted malt aroma and flavor, very nice mouthfeel, very cohesive flavors. One of the best brown ales i’ve tried.

473 ml can. Clear dark coppery colour, thin off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with notes of cocoa and nuts. The flavour is malty, a little toasted, with sweetish nutty and caramel notes, coffee, and a moderately bitter finish. Nice.

Rating #2190 - 2015.11.20 - Bottle from CBI. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Decent body, Taste is bold earthy,light hazelnut, mild roasted coffee bean, mild cocoa, slightly bitter finish that is quite pleasant. Impressive.

Looks like a watered down porter, kind of scattered head; not all that appetizing. Nose is quite nice, also reminiscent of a porter - brown sugar, sweet coffee, light maple. Taste is still sweet but not as desserty - toasty malts, some sweet caramel, light butter tart note, short and mild grassy hop finish; it’s a nice flavour but it comes across a bit too thin for my tastes. Low carbonation lends a slightly creamy mouthfeel, but mostly just feels flat. Overall, unspectacular but pleasant enough.

Tranquillity (2335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Canned. Dark brown body, small light brown head. The aroma is nutty and the flavor is buttery and sweet.

Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Really a nice brewing accomplishment. Mild chocolate, coffee and a forest floor mustiness on the nose. A brown opaque body with a light white head. This is a really tasty, balance and smooth brown ale. The taste profile features slightly roasted malt, nuts, a slight creaminess, a touch of lush dark fruit, some woodiness and a hint of vanilla. Really light on the hops, but it really works well. Fresh tastes perfectly blended.

Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
Clear, brown color and a small, brownish head. Aroma of malts, wood, nuts, bread, flour, and a delicate hint of fruits. Taste is also malty, warming, nutty. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish comes with a slight hoppy touch which gives it a bit less sticky character.
