Draft at The Only Cafe, Devlin's recommendation. Clear brown color. Light cocoa aroma. Taste is light chocolate, light body. yespr (48207) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2017
From tap. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma is malt dense, toasted to caramelish. Sweet and breadish. Lingering dark malty finish. Tranquillity (2533) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
Canned. Dark body, small beige head. The aroma is malty with chocolate, the taste is light but fresh. Canmoore (497) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours a dark ruby red, with a small head. Aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, and roasty malts. Tasting notes include nuts, rich malts, smooth caramel, burnt/toasty malts, and a slight bitter finish. Nice example of the style! Worthy of drinking while watching a game at the pub! kevinsenn (2294) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Can. Caramalt aroma and taste. Pleasant caramel in the taste, sweet with a clean finish. A fine brown ale.

This is the beer that the man with the straw hat (who lives around the corner) claims to be the finest beer in the province. Which is hard to accept, but to each her/his own. It’s a straight up malt bomb. Tastes like a beer nut milkshake. Sweet brown sugar with a bit of oatmeal. I agree with the reviewer a few entries below who says there’s no hops to be found. Ugh. This is going to slow down my drinking tonight, which is a drag. On the positive side, I bet this would make a great cooking beer (my ox-tail stew calls for a porter but I think this would do better). punkska101 (2168) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
Can from LCBO A: light nutty, light caramel, some fruitiness app: mahogany with reddish highlights thick white head and good lacing. T/p: med body with short bitter finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: a nice mild. a little too carbonated for my taste.
Everything is in control, could feel a little boring for some. Raistlin (476) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours brown with small white head. Aroma has smooth, creamy notes of dark fruits, raisins, and a touch of toasted bread. Taste is on the malty side. Slightly roasted with lots of dark fruits, and some basic, classic hops to bitter. Medium body and carbonation with a dry ending. Overall really liked it. Not too heavy either.

Smells great. Not offputting. sudomorph (1193) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Pours a dark brown black.
Taste is as an ale should be.
Could use more carbonation, but about right for an ale.
Overall I was not disappointed. Will buy again.
473ml can. Pours a lot like new oil. Deep garnet/caramel with a thin head. Aroma has smooth, creamy notes of caramel, dark fruits, raisins, and a touch of toasted bread. Taste is on the malty side. Slightly roasted with lots of caramel, dark fruits, and some basic, classic hops to bitter. Medium body and carbonation with a dry ending. Overall a nice brew. Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, slight roast, and toasted bread. Tastes like a Belgian dark but with regular ale yeast.
