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.

I could drink this and look at its dark colour, and it is somewhat rich in chocolate malts and caramel. Bit of roast.. But sourdough mid sip?Medium mouthfeel.

473 ml can. Thanks Timo A!
Dark red brown color with a tiny head. Toffee, chestnut, dry malt, berries and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is dark malt, bread, dry hops and mild chestnut.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2016 2016-01-02. Dark mahogany brown body, modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is metallic, caramel malt notes. Flavour is relatively dry, possibly a sign of age, sweet malt base with caramel and treacle touches, dusty malt character. Average body, good carbonation. Decent. 6/3/7/3/13 Bottle from the brewery, Guelph.

2008-07-13. Rich brown body with a quick tan head. Sweet rich malt aroma, notes of dusty malt and hints of cocoa. Touchs of cocoa return in the flavour, mild roast kissed brown ale like notes. (7+) Average plus palate for cask, lightly carbonated. Rather nice. Glad to have revisited this Ontario mainstay. 7/3/7+/3/15 - 3.5 Cask at Victory Cafe Cask Fest

November 2004. Ruby brown body, with a small white film of a head. Bit of muted roastyness and malt in the aroma. Flavour has a nice maltyness and the oddest hint of something that reminds me pleasantly of licorice or anise in the background? Touch watery in the finish. Average palate. Enjoyable. 5/3/7/3/12 - 3.0 Draft @ Bow & Arrow, Toronto</I

czar (9266) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
can. pours unclear light brown, burnt orange, with a small beige cap offering minimal retention and lacing. plain caramel, fruity and nutty maltiness as well, maple syrup unsweetened solids, earthy stone fruits - almost rotten though, astringent woodsy-earthiness - disturbing; metal, clean yeast otherwise, chalk. moderate carbonation, light body - watery; relatively dry spicy-earthy finish. plain, boring and cheap fruity caramel with a strange english-like earthiness. nah.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007
[620-20070916] Sample @ Feast of Fields (Hillsburgh, ON). Dark fruity plum aroma with hint of sweet grain and a malt background. Clear, amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Dark bread yeast grains flavour. Medium-full body is a little raspy. Quite nice.

3.2
solidfunk (9213) - 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.
