Served in a chilled mug at the brewpub so the aroma may be skewed. This beer was delicious! I don’t know if it was because I drank it after a long day on the golf course, but this beer is my current favorite. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2003
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. mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 [356-20070623] Tap @ Barley Works (Waterloo, ON). Roasty malty aroma has caramel background. Clear, dark brown red body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Sweet and lightly meaty flavour has toasty roasty smokey malt notes. Medium body has nice smoothness. Refreshing! Really enjoyable, one of their better brews. (8/4/8/3/16) 3.9

[1092C-20080211] Tap @ Lion brewpub (Waterloo, ON). Grainy bread aroma has a bit of sweet malt. Clear, dark amber brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Sour yeasty grains flavour has a long aftertaste. Medium body. Really interesting texture. (7/4/7/3/15) 3.6
On tap at the Huether. Nice deep dark reddish brown with a medium khaki head. Aroma is of grains, sweet dark malts, tiny hint of mocha. Indistinct. Flavour is quite nice, roasty malts meet the signature grainy sweet flavour of all this brewpub’s beers. Finishes balanced with some lingering barley tastyness. Great session brew. This was very enjoyable and along with the Wuerzburger the best thing they make in my opinion. gilvanblight (826) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2005
Dark brown colour that makes it look like a stout. Brown head many earthy tones in the scent. Slightly bitter malty taste with a bitter finish.

Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. The nose is cocoaish and chocolatey with a touch of earthiness as well. Nice toasty malt with a touch of herbal/cocoaish malt. A little bit of lingering bitterness. Solid brown ale.

Draught. Deep red colour, no head. Aroma of light malts, some fruit. Taste is light, soft hops, well balanced. Decent beer. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2002
The best of the beers from this brewery. Nice malty backbone with a touch of roast. Solid, if not a little sweet. Cartoonkhaki (1301) - 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.
