341 mL bottle. Pours walnut with a thin beige cap. Nutty toffee on the nose, some grainy malt, but lacking. Taste is a little sweet, watery, slightly bitter on the finish. Light to moderate body and moderate to full carbonation. Leaves a lot to be desired. lagerette (30) - - JUN 15, 2013
341mL bottle. Pours clear dark copper/ mahogany colour with off white head. Aroma sweet, malty nutty with brown sugar and caramel. Taste of caramel, coffee, toffee. Fair bitterness. It is a very pleasant and enjoyable smooth beer.

On cask at the Only. Pours a cloudy orange-ish dark brown with average-sized light tan head. Aroma is a weird caramel and a bit of chocolate. Flavour likewise, although as it warms some fruitiness emerges and it becomes more pleasant. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Not great. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Draught. Dark ruby-brown colour, thin head. Taste of chocolate. Not a bad beer.

341mL bottle. Pours a dark brown copper colour with a moderate off white head. Looks pretty filtered. Roasty caramel brown sugar, toasted bread aroma. Coffee and toast a bit more evident on taste. Hint of coffee. Body a little watery, but clean and smooth. Overall, something that would be easy to drink a few of.

Victory Cafe, Toronto cask: Pours a dark brown with a small head. Aroma is ambiguously malty. Taste is slightly sweet. Body is far too light to be a solid brew. I had difficulty finishing this because I had very little desire to drink the whole thing. This was a disappointment at best. solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Some smell of bitter hops and a follow through that has a hint of coffee on it, a nutty bitter. A medium body with an alright amber colour and virtually no head. Not bad. Bottle. IWillBeLight (9) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011 does not count
From bottle. Pours transparent reddish brown. No head. Mild aroma of coffee and caramel. Light body with thin lightly carbonated texture. Good, but nothing special. OntBeerDrinker (514) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
This ones a bite weird and a little diff from other dark ALES i had. Dark beers rule! This one is watery,heavy,I can notise the english hops after the watery part(but in a diff way)AND then some brown sugar ruffness with some chocolate in the taste. I do like this one but its a bit weird a little. Fire brewed old style thb (829) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours clear red-brown with thin head. Aroma - chocolate, grains, licorice. Taste is reasonably well balanced between sweet/bitter, perhaps a bit of a sugary sweetness in there. Carbonation seems harsh and distracting.
