on tap-pours a dissipating off white head and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-molasses, fruit. Taste is medium malt-molasses, fruit, secondary hops bite with some spice. OK/mild carbonation. mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
Pours a dark syrupy brown with creamy large-bubbled head and a nutty, sweet malt aroma. Fruity, berry-like taste with very little in the way of hops. Buttery off-taste - Diacetyl? Decent carbonation, thin body. This may have been a good beer upon conception, but it tastes well past it’s prime only 3 months after purchase.

Chestnut body with a creamy head. Caramel biscuit aroma with easy chocolate and light caramel flavors. A tasty brown ale. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle from brewpub. Nice brown with a light tan head. Malty caramel, light chocolate, and coffee. Taste is a nice caramel, and toffee, nice maltiness. Very good brown. Oakes (19370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
Chestnut brown colour. It’s a bit cold to get much aroma...silly a brewpub serving such a beer at 4C when they have a 10C fridge as well. But what I get from the nose is a bit nutty with quite a bit of diacetyl. Flavour is pretty much the same - nutty with way too much diacetyl for my admittedly low threshold palate.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 (Draught) Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a lasting tan head with a deep brown body. So cold the nose doesn’t show but when brought to room temperature its only mildly roasty. The flavour is somewhat nutty and roasted - there is also possibly some nutmeg in there but all in all fairly basic. Not my favourite but I like the variety and experimentation by the brewer.
