draught. Dark ruby-brown colour, thin head. Aroma of malts, yeast, some roast chocolate notes. Taste mirrors the aroma, but mouthfeel is thin and too bubbly. Ok.

I tried this beer on July 18, 2011 after purchasing a 6 pack from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a translucent reddish-brown with a very thin white head. The aroma was roasted malt, weak coffee, some caramel, and weak fruit. The mouthfeel was thin to medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is both bitter and sour malt, with a hint of sweetness.

Bottle, pours brown, expected a bit more darkness, but the smell is nice, its of kind of chocolate yeastyness, Taste is similar. I found it to be very yeasty, hints of similar tastes to other f n m beers. but it worked for this offering, I enjoyed the taste of this beer

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Sweet, malty, and easy to drink. Hops are present but dont translate into a strong bitterness. Very sessionable. I liked.

Bottle. Attractive mahogany appearance. Aromas of hot chocolate, mild coffee and corn syrup. Burnt chocolate and sawdust flavours. Good in general but painfully average for a dark.

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Draught. Dark copper-brown with red tinge. Medium body with too much fizz. Caramel and blonde nuts.. very drinkable.. though slightly acrid in the swallow. On Tap at a steakhouse I used to eat in.. will never eat there again.. so no more of this for me either..

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown, with a thin off-white head that disappeared very quick. Aroma is cocoa, earthy, and dark cereals. Taste is dark malt, slight sweetness, straw, faint chocolate. Watery, grassy and faint bitter finish.

DerWeg (1605) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2012 Cask pint at ??Cest What??. Really nice deep brown pour with a bit of flat-lying tan foam. Nice aromas of toffee and citric hops and cocoa and nuts. Taste some nice chocolate and nuts followed by a later hop bitterness that just cinches refreshment over the light sweetness. Great feel! Supposedly best on cask conditioned. ** following time ** very odd pint with flavors that worsen into peanutty bitterness and green apple peel, not a graceful death of a cask. ** re re rate CASK at only, so good, caramel and toffee with bitter english hop, bock-like barnyard.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 On tap at the Woolwich Arms in Guelph The aroma was almost non existent slightly sweet pours a ligh copper this is a dark ale? not much head or lacing The taste was fairly mild and i am unsure whether the keg was old or not so this one will need to be revisited at some point 2nd Tasting. 330ml bottle fron the Brewery The aroma is malty and metallic. Pours a nice copper with a big tan head with good lacing. The taste is a little underwelming a liitle thin and flat with some burnt flavours in there as well
