On tap at the Alibi Room, pours dark brown. Aroma of mild nuts. Flavour of nuts, roasted malt and some caramel. Pretty weak, but still alright. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
Draught at Alibi Room, VancouverPowertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
Brown color with red shades. Nice aroma of caramelized nuts, maple syrup. Dry mouthfeel, but good flavor of dark caramel, roasted nuts, chestnut honey; correct bitterness; more roasted nuts in the end. Balanced and well brewed.
Poured extremely dark brown...almost black with medium-high soft head. Nose of sweet cream, macadamia nuts & dark chocolate. Extremely soft mouth feel with an abundance of light-sweet malt, cashew, and some bitter background noise. Very well balanced but just the slightest touch on the sweet side. Finish is even more sweetness. Still a pleasent nut brew. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2010
sample on 4/1/10 at Ale Atlanta. light brown pour with a small off white head... big nut aromas with some sweetness. light to medium body with more nuts.... ok. Sask89 (530) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 19, 2010
Pours black with a medium tan head. The aroma is of malts; chocolate with hints of nuts. The taste is somewhat sweet, but also a little dry. There is a lingering aftertaste to it as well. Full bodied, average carbonation, thick mouthfeel. Overall a decent brew but nothing special.

light roast, light hops. boring pale malts. slight tin flavor, pretty boring actually. Goldenpole (10) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
Starts with beautiful tight off white head, and a rich chocolate brown colour. Virtually no nose to speak of and a mild watery palate. Nice aftertaste of coffee and dark chocolate, but can’t make up for almost complete absence of body, and mouth feel.

Dark brown, almost black in colour; copper when held up to light. A bubbly head that dissipates in two minutes. Tastes of malted barley, perhaps with a subtle hint of accompanying hops. Slightly sweet, almost making this more of a desert beer than a typical brown ale. Disappointingly, it has a watery viscosity, and very little aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 Pecan brown with a big fluffy beige head. Has a slightly chocolatey malt aroma. It has a nice nutty, caramel, and earthy malt flavor. Not much in the way of hops. I found it a little too light and watery, though. Kind of middling for a brown ale. MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
What a lovely, rich colour this one has, along with a nice, foamy head. You can both smell and taste the malt, and the taste is has a slight hint of nut about it. Not a bad nut brown, but not the best I’ve had, either.
