Keg at Clocktower Elgin St, Ottawa. Nut brown with mid sized head. Caramelly nose with some hazelnuts. Sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Butter and cocoa powder, caramel and light spice. Low bitterness.

AleRider78 (1452) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2016
On tap at Glebe Brewpub. Pours an average size brownish head, a bit foamy and goes away after a little bit. Has a dark brown appearance with red hues. Weak lacing. Aromas of coffee and dark roasted malts. Flavours of mocha and some coffee, a bit of chocolate. Also a bit smokey as well. Hints of caramel. Somewhat bitter on the palate but not too offensive. Still goes down pretty easy.

gildnerk (201) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 29, 2014
Rather normal brown ale. Dark brown colour with a decent off-white head. Malt and barley aromas with some hops in the background. Rather nutty, malty taste with very little bitter, some chocolate sweetness. Little aftertaste. Low carbonation and a somewhat thin body. OK.

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Very pedestrian brown ale here. Pours a syrupy looking brown aroma of barley, nothing else. Faint nip of hops in finish but this tastes more like an RAN than a brown. Average carbonation. Tap at brewpub.

BreWedge (558) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
On tap @ Clocktower Ottawa. Pours a virtual opaque brown with a mid-size, creamy, mocha head. Aromas are nuts, wood, and caramel. Tastes are coffee, semi-sweet chocolate,and roasty malt. Medium body, good carbonation, and a medium bitter finish. This beer may be a little on the robust side for a typical brown ale but I believe the rate-bee rians (rate-beerites?) have sold this beer a little short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Viper666 (3289) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place (Bank St). De couleur brune foncée et claire. Nez de grains de malt moyennement rôtis et légèrement sucrés, léger de noix avec des notes de houblon herbeux ainsi que des traces de chocolat. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût de noix grillées avec des traces de chocolat lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt rôtis et légèrement sucrés avec des petites notes de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de rôti et de houblon herbeux avec des notes de noix. (5 avril 2013)

On tap at the Market brewpub. Dark brown body with a thin off-white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with chocolate and brown sugar notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

En fût au Clocktower. Couleur brune foncé, mousse beige. Arôme de chocolat. En bouche, chocolat, un peu de café, malt, herbes. Finale choco et un peu d’amertume florale. Très bonne.

worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2011
Roast chocolate, nut, rasing and flowery smell. Medium brown with a little red hints with a thin lasting white lacing head. Light thin body witha little tingle - Goes down very smooth. Bitter ash start, grapefuit, nut dry malt with a bitter clean finish. Not bad. Their porter is better.
