Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a light brown color with a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Sly lace runs into the beer. The aroma grabs some earthy, rustic sweet nuts, somewhat roasty with a nice coherent robust coffee bean underneath. The flavor yields to a blend of earthiness to the sweet. Nice lingering blend of cocoa bean to earthiness running into the aftertaste and a sly quick semi-sweet to roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Smooth malts move finely over my tongue. Low to medium carbonation. Overall, really nice brown ale that I would love to have again.

[Cask] Very dark brown color, with a really excellent, dense tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavors are very nutty, roasted malts, some dark caramel and hop bitterness in the finish. Very smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel.

Dark brown black color with a sweet scent to it. Flavor is not overly complex but hop and malts seem to be well balanced. Very drinkable beer.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2005
Mild nutty character to the lightly fruity, sweet aroma. Opaque dark brown coloured body with ruby tones. Tan/brown head recedes slowly to ring and partial cover. Chocolate, nutty malt character with mild balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium-light body with fair-moderate carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with dirtymike, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Rastacouere and Volgon.

New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #14. Small sample at the brewpub, also in the company of Volgon and brewer Dirtymike. Deep brown-black, nearly opaque with a small but lovely bit of head...very, very sweet cherry-hazelnut nose with thick malty goodness...some woody character in the sweet body which becomes fairly dry and just a touch thin at the end...close.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
A tan ring covers te dark brown hue. Mostly nutty aroma uncovers dry marzipan essence and both earthy and chocolatey undertones. Surprisingly roasty for a brown ale, the nutty maltiness is quickly losing its match in the favour of a considerable dryness. A fuller body would help this one as it already counts on a pleasant creamy texture.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2005
Deep caramel, vanilla and hazelnut sweetness hug the roasted malt bitterness...Prickly carbonation emphasizes the dry ending...And the mildly complex malts reappear for a final bow...

Had at Milly’s. Black in color with almost no head whatsoever. Wicked fizzy mouthfeel that was kinda sweet and roasty.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2005
On tap at the brewpub: Dark brown with a lasting of-white head, roasted aroma, medium bodied with lively carbonation, starts sweet, ends less sweet and a tad bitter, didn’t notice the low alcohol.
