One of the best dark beers I’ve experienced. Coffee notes that are delicate yet rich. Clean and smooth. Pours a robust head. jonaldjames (16) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
Pours caramel brown with a light, dissipating beige head. Aroma of molasses, malts, sweet breads, and subtle vanilla on the nose. Flavour has more molasses upfront with hints of candied sugar, hay, raisin. Light bodied and mildly carbonated. Finishes clean with a pleasant lingering hoppiness. A nice go-to dark ale. spankafied (3) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010 does not count
Beautiful full flavor, well suited to rich stews and roasts featuring slow cooked red meats. Mucca (51) - - JUL 13, 2013
Pours dark with a small tan coloured head. Smooth crisp flavour. Easy to enjoy and one everyone should try.

Poured out a rocky decent sized light brown head with minimal lacing that sits on top of a very deep brown beer. The spotty lacing does continue to be produced throughout the entire time. The aroma is excellent and pretty much like they claim - very nutty, toffee, chocolate, light roast, weak molasses, and a mild cigar smell. The taste is no slouch either with a huge malt presence, toffee, roast, caramel and a well placed and properly portioned tart bitterness. Oh and when warmer near the bottom of my glass I found a mild candy licorice taste. Interesting to note is that the bitterness of the roast never once overpowers the tongue. Light medium bodied, very smooth with an immediate and perfect sweet uprising that fades into the nutty and roasted malt aftertaste. Minor bitter remnants. This is a superior beer looking down on any other I’ve had before in the style, including those with heavy flavours and usually over bittered like Rogue Nut Brown. In my book this beer makes a serious case for 10’s in aroma, taste and overall ratings. In fact, I just changed the aroma to a 10 and seriously contemplating giving this beer a 4.5+ rating. I guess that will have to wait until I get another can, if I ever do.

A rich rusty dark brown, head went fast, very light. Nose; boiled oranges, nutmeg, grass, mushroom>earth, very malty. Mouth; very mellow, creamy, roast nuts, sweet, layers of complexity. Very nice, very enjoyable. Best brown ale I’ve ever had?
