Pours a brown colour with red highlights and a tan head. Aroma is vanilla, nuts and over ripe stone fruit. Taste is a little chocolate and nutty. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
Clear medium brown pour, small tan head, quickly disperses. big variety in the malt aroma, nut, chocolate, roast, coffee. Taste is nicely balance between sweet and bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Really enjoyed this brown ale, not overly bitter but has a lot of dark malt character, nuttiness and roast. pushkinwow (2961) - Ottawa, CANADA - NOV 23, 2016
Can from Fall CANBIF 2016. Dark brown pour with a thin beige rim. Malty and slightly roasted malts, walnuts, some coffee grinds, moderate carbonation and mild+ body, slightly bitter, thin, somewhat oxidized even after sitting in the glass for almost an hour, dries out on the palate and leaves a nice toasted and rye malt. cmacklin (1370) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
355ml can. (5.5% ABV) Pours a clear red-brown with a small, creamy, long lasting, beige head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, nuts, caramel, bread and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, nuts, caramel and dark chocolate with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty. These guys are off to a good start. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - OCT 5, 2016
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, nuttiness, caramel and hops. Taste of roasted malts, nuttiness, slight caramel, grainy, faint hops and bitter burnt roast. Light bodied, higher carbonation, metallic aftertaste.

Can. Brown with light white head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, and coco. Taste is coffee roast, light bitterness, mixed in with a touch of subtle sweetness. Really nice easy drinking brown ale. UXO (1896) - CANADA - AUG 24, 2016
Appearance: clear amber-brown with a short beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: roasty malts, coffee, chocolate, grassy, nutty, mild dark fruit and liquorice. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish short finish. (3/5)
Nicely hoppy Brown Ale that nonetheless still has all the roasted malt character you’d expect from a brown, or even a porter or stout. Lighter body keeps the dark roasty malt from become oppressive, and hops keep things on the bright side. (14/20) bulldogops (2846) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Rating #1859 - 2015.08.13 - Flight at Taproom. Dark brown pour with a frothy tan foam that disappears slowly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Decent body, lots of roasty, earthy notes balanced by just a tender bitterness and a creamy texture. Lots of spicy hops in the finish. A solid brown ale, through and through.

355 ml can via Christine (thanks!) , served in a tulip glass.
App.: Very deep brown-mahogany with a so-so tan head.
Aroma: Kinda brothy and savoury, nutty, milk chocolate, a bit of toffee, not getting much in the way of hops, lighter fruity esters.
Palate: Medium body, a bit powdery, moderate+ carbonation.
Flav.: Quite nutty, a little earthy, milk chocolate, toffee, a bit estery; dry with moderate to moderate+ bitterness (builds as it sits), with a nutty, earthy, milk chocolate finish.
I’d call this closer to British than American.
