This is the type of ale for those who do not want overpowering taste of the chocolates and hops. I prefer the heavier ales, stouts and porters. The bottle was re sealable like a Groslch.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Poured from the tap. Dark mahogany with minimal beige head. Mild caramel and roast malts with some nuttiness. Light medium body. Simple and kinda boring.

piscator34 (2493) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottled sample. Pale brown (slightly red) in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of vanilla nougat, and toasted nuts. Fairly sweet in the mouth with more vanilla, pistachio, and toffee. You can taste a bit of roast on the back end, which translates as mild roast coffee to me. Lighter bodied than expected, in spite of all of the sweetness. Sort of a by-the-book oldschool nut brown ale. Ok as is, but far more interesting things are happening with this style now.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
On tap at Bear Street tavern, Banff. Pours a very dark brown, in fact its nearly black. Rich vineous aroma & plenty of roast malt makes it veer into stout territory. Full bodied & exceptionally robust.
