Bottle. Deep amber color. Aroma of caramel, pepper. Taste is caramel and light spice. Decent. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Dark mahogany color, brown, with medium sized head. Aroma of caramel, with light roasted nuts and wood oven baked bread; very light yeast and basil impression, later. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is lean; it has a very good caramel flavor, with mild residual sugars, and the required toasted nuts; quite bitter; more nutty in the end, with darker caramel too.Theydon_Bois (20165) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Keg at the taproom in Eugene, 10/11/14.
Chestnut brown with a decent tan swirl and edgeing.
Nose is biscuit, nutty, toffee.
Taste comprises caramel, toffee, biscuit, earthy notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok alt if a little ramped up US ABV take for the style! Doesn’t match up to the better 4.5/5% alts you get in Dusseldorf, ABV ain’t everything! mcberko (18422) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
On tap at The Taphouse, pours dark copper. Aroma and flavour of cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and a little dark fruit. Decent. Oakes (18199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Muddy dark brown. No head. Aroma is a little bubblegummy. Sweet and bubblegummy, the malts are maybe a bit of caramel. Touch if chocolate but the overt sweetness of this brew and the phenols are entirely in the wrong direction.

Bottle, 22oz. A finger thick light beige head sits patiently on top of a clear, amber to brown body. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and some roasted notes. Not much hoppiness going on. Some in the aroma though, bringing balance. Toffee and some roasted hints. Full body with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting lightly roasted finish with a good bitterness. A pleasant beer, well suited for the cold season. 130805 Ferris (16093) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014

Full bodied with foamy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark roast malt, with some hop bitter and floral/fruit aspects. Some cola and chocolate. Finishes bitter with sweet, and somewhat chocolate.
