Sampled at the Kitchener craft beer show. Pours a nice brown colour with a small head. Aroma is malty, slightly earthy. The taste is almost entirely malty, with very noticeable elements of roasted coffee. Enjoyable over-all.

nice roasty malt nose, flavour is much of the same. Good balance between the roasty malt, and slight caramel notes. Great finish of caramel, i like this alot!

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Draught @ Hostex: Pours deep amber-brown, almost like a cola, with a good sized spotty foam head. Surprising hoppiness in the aroma alongside the expected caramel malts. Flavour is softer than you might expect after the aroma, but man is it good. Caramel sweetness, a pleasing nuttiness, and light hopping. Good stuff!

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2006
This dark ale is one of my favourites. Just discovered about 2 weeks ago, it pours a deep orange/red colour with a off white foamy head. To the nose it has roasted malts and nuts with a little fruit. First taste is nice and roasty with the malts and some hop shining through. Maybe a little coffee too. The palate is nice with nore roast and a little smoke to finish off. Very Good!

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
Dark golden to brown ale with a thin dissolving white head, a bit lifeless when poured. Light oxidized malt with nutty notes in aroma. In mouth, light sweet malt with light nuttyness and roastiness in final, with bitter chocolate, not very hopped, thinner than expected.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Chocolate and nutty malts in the sweet and simple aroma. Clear dark copper coloured body is topped by a thin off white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Chocolate malt flavour, some caramel some nuttiness. Mild herbal hops are apparent. Light-medium finishing bitterness. Perhaps a touch of roast in the aftertaste. Thin and watery body detracts greatly from overall enjoyment especially when paired with strong but short-lived carbonation. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Cask, dry hopped @ Volo. I expected this one to be a bit darker. Slightly cloudy gold, creamy off-white head. Nose is light caramel, dusty malt, some vanilla. Flavori is caramel, vanilla, dusty malt/caramel finish. A bit of fruitiness.
