On February 16th 1813, New Brunswicks 104th Regiment of Foot started a more than 1100 kilometer march from Fredericton, New Brunswick to modern day Kingston, Ontario, to reinforce the British garrison and thwart an expected American invasion. The winter of 1813 was one of extreme cold and heavy snows and this march lasted until April. This epic march stands as a great achievement in both military, and New Brunswick history.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
The Connell Stamp version: Opaque almost black color, transparent in the light with a copper hue, strong visible activity. Faint frothy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, creating a good amount of lacing. Flavors of sweet molasses, caramel, butterscotch, dark chocolate, coffee, faint dark berries and apples, and herbal hops. Very sweet and tender prominent chocolate taste. Quality coffee feel. Pleasant earthiness being well intensified and not too spicy. Smooth medium body with sharp prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish with a well rounded chocolate, bitter hops, and walnuts mouthfeel. Really good! Very fresh, delicious, and easy to enjoy. Balanced and accessible. Overall excellent craft.

Dguste en compagnie de Ju-Lo sur la terrasse. La bire est bien brune et prsente des reflets pourpres. Magnifique mousse forme de bulles de toutes les tailles et magnifiquement mousseuse, persistante et sophistique si len on croit les dentelles laisses sur le verre. Superbe! Nez complexe te assez percutant de fruits bien mrs, lgrement confits et sucrs. Outre les malts grills, jai limpression dy retrouver des lments que lon retrouve habituellement dans une ABT mais avec plus de punch: de la datte, de la figue et du raisin. En bouche, la bire laisse chapper des notes herbaces la manire dune Brio Chinotto. Cheers Ju-Lo! La texture est assez troite, les saveurs sont serres mais percutantes pour une bire 4,2% Courte en bouche mais pleine de saveurs, une brown ale trs agrable boire.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Looks like cola but with a nice long-lasting beige head and some creamy lacing. Aromas of apples, roasted and caramel malts. The taste with the same malts has some nutty notes as well. Pretty decent brown ale that refreshes.

Beaucoup de malt bien fonc et normment de caf me montent au nez... Cependant, le got ne peut suivre le parfum initial, ce qui doit considrablement. Bon produit malgr cela.

Very enjoyabeer thisun. Ruby brown she was, an off white head adorning. Brown bread, caramel and roasted malts dance together to form the scent of this umber babe. The taste is bittersweet with leather, nuts and burnt toffee coming alive on the tongue. Zee mouthfeel is medium.

Bottle from the brewery store. Pours a clear dark brown color with ruby at the edges and a creamy frothy off white head that displays great retention and lace. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and chocolate maltiness with just a hint of butterscotch and earthy hop to balance. The flavor is rich caramel and toffee maltiness with a fair amount of chocolate notes and some earthy hop flavor and minimal bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy silky mouthfeel. I seem to be a bit better at tolerating diacetyl in darker beers and I kind of enjoyed this one.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
An interesting brown ale that tastes a lot meatier than the abv says. Poured a ruby brown with a nice frothy head. Aroma was of roasted malts and coffee beans. Tasted of coffee, nuts, toffee, and even some interesting smokiness going on in there. Had a medium body with lively carbonation that left a tingly feel on the tongue. I would quaff this again.

Acebulf (6) - - MAY 31, 2014 does not count
Pours dark brown with a 1-inch tan head. Subtle coffee and dark malt aromas with a bit of cherry. Taste is what you would expect from a brown ale. Soft carbonation with a medium body. Medium-strength coffee and dark malts. Finishes with a pleasant aftertaste of those same flavours. Overall not a bad beer. Definitely true to the style.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
2014-03-21. Dark mahogany body head with a nice beige head. 3+ Aroma is mild and toasty, mineral notes. Flavour is relatively dry malt, light toasty and roasty notes, light bitterness in the finish lingers with mild mineral quality. Average bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. Okay. Showing its age I suspect but a decent take on the style. Bottle from the brewery cellared several months
