Bottle: Poured a deep brown, almost black color ale with an average size foamy head with good retention and limited lacing. Aroma of deep caramel malt with some toffee notes. Taste is also dominated by some deep caramel malt with some toffee notes and some minimal hops presence. Body is bit too thin with good carbonation. Loads of character for style that can be often quite bland. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Mild chocolate, some toasted malts and a touch of caramel in the nose. Clear deep brown body with a low off white head that recedes to cover with nice lacing. Lightly fruity notes complement the nutty malt forward flavour along with the undertone of chocolate. Decent bitterness and perhaps a touch of roast at the death. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub before the Als/Riders game. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
(Draught) 5 oz sampler tasted at the brewpub on December 29, 2005, for $1.50. Pours a lasting creamy beige head with a deep red body. The nose was that of an oily caramel and toasted malt. The flavour had an added touch of scotch to the taste. A good and balanced beer! paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Brown body with a creamy mud colour head. Inviting chocolate aroma. Chocolate and coffee flavours grab me here with hints of caramel. Solid beer all around. Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Another wonderfull aroma from the Bushwakker line up! The smell of this beer makes your mouth water...and the dark chocolaty taste leaves you wanting another mouthful. There is a distinct bitter aftertaste that suprised me at first but I found it complimented the sweet chocolate rush when it hits your lips.

Mahogany. Light brown head. Rich malty brown ale aroma. One of Bushwakker’s best aromas. Dark roasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavour. Almost porter like. Creamy palate fits the chocolate flavour. Beerguys (50) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Poured with a small creamy head that dissipated quick. Dark brown in color with a hint of red. Hint of chocolate taste. You can taste the bitters on the after taste. Did not enjoy as much as the Last Mountain Lager but still a good beer mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - NOV 29, 2004
I really liked this. Deep brown colour, the aroma has a slight roasted charcter that is also present in the taste. Good sweet maltiness to go with the roast. Hit of bitterness on the finish. Would make a great session beer. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2004
My first ever first rating! An excellent brown ale. Not too much going on in the aroma, poured an off white head that quickly dissipated. Dark brown body. Great malt character to the initial flavour, hints of chocolate and caramel, great balance. Slightly bitter finish, gets better as it warms. My only complaint would be that it is a little thin. Otherwise, a great tasting brown ale. Thanks Rudge75.
