The pour is a dark brown, mostly opaque with a finger of beige head and some spotty lacing. The nose has a sweet, roasty malt with a surprising hop note. Notes of cocoa, wood, roast and biscuits. The taste is quite mild with a hint of cocoa and roasty malts, light wood and subtle dark fruits. A nutty caramel malt and a mild grassy hop finish with light bitterness. A medium body with a sticky, chewy motuhfeel. overall, this is an average brown ale. DeanF (2527) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
Nice amber-black body and a decent dark beige head. Aroma is grass and barley, like it may have been a vegetable brew. Flavour is a slightly sweet barley with hints of grass. Better than some stuff by Tin Whistle, but I can’t say I’ve been impressed by this brewer to any stretch. RobBestwick (965) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottled. Rich, dark chocolate and nutty aroma. Pours with a black hue and off-white head. Very rich, dark chocolate, nutty flavour. Rich, syrupy texture and malty finish. Good stuff. mjmeijer2 (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
Nice hoppy dark ale. Pours nicely, looks nice. Bittersweet taste. Bitter finish. TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2010
dark brown color. Rich nose of caramel, brown malts. Malty, decent complexity.

Fairly dark....can barely see through it, very faint red tinge. Nose: Immediate wet log, then some ash. Not overly complex. Taste: Very mild barley and lots ash everywhere. Dusty. Thin upfront but starts to speak late with some very high percentage cocoa. Finish is surprisingly short and carbonation is not as high as some other Tin Whistle Beers, but slight lack of balance is common place. jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Nice lightish brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Mild aroma (no pun) of malt, light caramel and a touch of nuts. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt with some light pitted fruits and a minor bit of vanilla. Aftertaste is pretty subdued with only sugars coming through and perhaps a touch of malt and nuts. Overall, a pretty unoffensive beer and one that shows relatively well - not bad by any means, just not sublime. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased a few days earlier at Sherbrooke Liquors in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, sampled at the Banff Springs hotel in Banff, Alberta on 30-December-2008.

Pours almost black with a thin head. Aroma is mild and smokey. Very smooth a little lacking in body. but it has a nice malty flavour followed with a strong dry smokey flavour. There must be some smoked malt in this. I like the effort this is a very cool beer. But a little dull and like i said, weak in body. TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2010
Smells lightly of malts and spring water. Fairly clear, not too much head or lacing, dark brownish where it’s thick. Tastes of malts as well, not too much else, a bit of coffee in the end of the palate but otherwise it’s very clean tasting. I thought it would be much bolder tasting with the a name like that! It’s certainly palatable, but too thin for my palate. hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
I bought this beer because it says mild ale clearly on the label... Well I guess that style tick will have to wait until later. Pours a dark brown with a small ring of a head. The aroma is of musty hops, toffee, and grain grist. The flavor is sweet, tinny, and odd. This beer just doesn’t do it for me... Just doesn’t find any balance through out the entire palate. Never again.
