UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 June 2007. Draft at the brewpub. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Sweet dark malt aroma with mild roast and light notes of watery coffee. (7+) Sweet roasty malt flavour with varying notes of mocha and dark bitter chocolate, muted toffee and an interesting melange of all of these that lingers in the aftertaste. (7+) Average palate could be more robust but is fitting for the English style. This was in great shape today - very nice. 7+/3+/7+/3/15-16 - 3.7
<P>Feb 2004 re-rate, Dark ruby brown with a nice beige head. Malty slightly fruity flavour with a bit of roasty mocha. Lighter bodied than expected but still a nice mouth feel. Not much aroma which was surprising. Probably their best beer. 5/4/7/3/14 - 3.3
Jan 2001: Had this on it’s own and in the Beer Float. Nice dark brown ale. Fairly sweet and malty. This was my favourite of their beers. Cartoonkhaki (1280) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2003
I found this very rich in flavour. Dark brown. Nice head. Malty and sweet. I will have this again. Crit (3995) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2003
Black with lasting tan head.Decent malt nose. Medium bodied malt profile. joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2002
An odd beer. It seems to be more than a brown ale but not quite a porter. Anyway . . . Dark brown w/ good head & lacing. Slightly roasty/toasty aroma. Full-bodied and chewy. Toasty malt character w/ notes of chocolate, coffee, nuts & fruit. Certainly this brewery’s best offering.

The best of the beers from this brewery. Nice malty backbone with a touch of roast. Solid, if not a little sweet.
