Growler - Red Brown Ale , no head and low carbonation, dark toffee aroma, serving up loads of dry roast malt, sharp finish herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
On tap at volo. Dark amber, active white head. Aroma is sweet, dark chocolate, caramel, orange peel, dark fruit. Grainy body. Flavour kind of disappoints compared to the aroma. Mild dark chocolate with a bitter hoppy dry finish. Other than that, not much standing out. Kind of uninspiring. Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 1, 2009
Tap @ Volo Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
Appearance: amber looking brew , light fine haze , light , bright top noted as well.
Nose: earthy base with malty top. Hint of aromatic hop. Good aroma per se but I failed to note Irish character.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied with mild centre. Slightly thinner on sides. Some raw bitterness , leafy and citric. In character more to pale ale than malty caramel Irish one. Bah! 12-/20
Volo cask days 2009. This brewer has competent material. Here os a lower IBU ale that is a very drinkable cask. Medium brown colour, a bold taste with a bit of citrus and a little acidic in the finish. This would go well with food. HogTownHarry (6925) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2009
Cask. At Volo Cask Days 2009. Cloudy deep red with an average lasting frothy off-white head. Grassy and lightly roasty aroma, with crush appleseed bitterness - same in the flavour, only grainier ... average body, slightly bitter finish - pretty non-memorable.

On tap at Volo. Pours a brownish dark red with small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, slight fruit and grain. Taste is caramel malt, and some sweet grains. Average body and carbonation. Fine but nothing special. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2009
Cask at ’Volo Cask Days 2009’. Pours a deep amber-red with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma, which is quite mild, of caramel malt and light grassy hops. Dull flavour of grain, caramel malt and light grassy hops. Average bodied. A dull, mediocre beer.
