Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2017
473 ml Can.
Deep amber body with a 3-finger off-white head settling to a foamy layer leaving very ample blotchy lace.
Aroma of roasted malts, crystal malts, sweet malts, a hint of caramel, and grassy-resiny hops.
Rich flavor of roasted malts, black coffee, sweet malts, same in the aftertast, a hop-bitter and cream cheese finish. A fine brew best appreciated poured out of its container and into your favorite beer mug. jakeskia (30) - Kanata, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2017
Great example of a nut brown ale, with notes of molasses, chocolate and coffee. rejtable (2840) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
I really liked this one! Great dark beer with beautiful balance and a full feel in the mouth. Really outstanding! Metalchopz (3537) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Pretty sure this is the one I had at Berryman Pub in Ottawa, as they called it "Kichesippi Dark". Pours a copper-amber colour with a creamy beige head, good retention and showing some stickiness on the glass. Nice fresh roasty nose with coffee notes. Medium-thick mouthfeel with a little stick to it. Beautiful hoppy presence the whole way, blending things between the mild roasted, caramel and cereal malts. Nice bitterness in the finish creating a mild dry aftertaste. A great session that is very well-balanced. asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2011

Fresh wort aroma with some nuts and brown sugar; fresh. Orange-copper appearance that is almost clear, with a lasting off-white blanket. Nice nutty flavour with contrapuntal bitterness. Moderately dry and clean. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, clean finish, if a tiny touch of lasting bitterness. Quaffable stuff.

Assez foncée, couleur cola à la lumière, avec une mousse couleur crème. Bien maltée en nez ; ses arômes de grains rôtis se transposent en bouche, où le mélange est bien rond, variant entre le torréfié, le sucre d’orge et les noisettes. Plutôt simple, aurait profité d’un houblonnage plus intense, mais le tout est réellement agréable. Offrande solide de la part de cette brasserie ontarienne.
