Muddy dark chestnut. Nutty aroma, slightly vinous, toffeeish, almondy. Strongish flavour, a mix of sweetness and earth tones. Bark-like in its bitterness, a slightly disconcerting effect that highlights the lack of direction this beer has. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005

Fresh bottle from brewery, hand bottled. Brown with lots of lace. Bubbly head. Smelled like a scotch, tasted hoppy like an amber cross-style. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Muddy brown pour with minimal head. Aroma of caramel malt, big brown sugar, some nuts, figs, fruit. Tastes caramel malty, not sweet, with the figgy fruit, slight dark chocolate, and some hops. MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2003
From a seemingly tepid puddle of sewer water emanates a seering pine cone perfume...Cloves massage the energetic conifer bitterness throughout...A cask-conditioned palate in a bottle... JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Deep brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly nutty and malty with some light caramel and toast. Herbal and quite light smelling. Low bitterness with a very light sweetness. Kind of a watery brew and not all that great. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 27, 2003
Nice brown. One level above let say Tartan in qualities. I like the hops popping out behind malt. Nice...
