On cask at Volo. Appearance: purple red with no head. Aroma: port, malt, spice, alcohol. Flavour: spicy malt followed by a nice vine flavour with grass and bitterness to follow. Nice long bitter finish. DuffMan (10421) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with amber highlights, medium tan head. Aroma is sweet burnt toffee, faintly fruity. Sweet caramel flavour, a little nutty and fruity with a surprising smokey element. Medium bodied, sweetness lingers in the finish impairing its drinkability somewhat. Still, decent enough. strowlands8 (213) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2009
Ruby brown , minimal off-white head, had no lacing, alcoholic warming, aroma of dark fruits, berries, roasted malt and malty bitterness. Medium carbonation, reminds me of Trois Pistoles. Pretty decent alcohol is a little overwhelming, but still a decent offering. Bejaaamin (115) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
Nice brown colour, good size head. Nose; nutty, caramel, coffee, very sweet. Flavours were similar, not quite bitter enough of a finsh. But good. EHGsean (28) - CANADA - MAY 1, 2009
Caramel, chocolate, and a bit of an alcohol warmth that comes through in the finish. When compared to the "Wellington County Dark", this beer is by far the superior brew. Sweet and nutty, with a bit of roast.
xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2009
Aroma is slightly alcoholic, nutty, some small amount of caramel, and a yeasty, fruity finish.
Head quickly dissipates. A deep amber color.
Taste is slightly nutty, roasty/malty, touch of sour, dirty water and sweetness.
Finishes sweet and slightly cloying.
Very, very average.

Acquired in a trade with Matt7215. Pours a mahogany colour with a nice tan coloured head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, a hint of red berries and a nutty aroma. Tastes nice and roasty with caramel and chocolate coming through. The finish tastes like spiced nuts. Creamy mouth feel. Nice beer. Thanks Matt! hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
341ml bottle. Poured a deeper brownish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, caramel, and nuts. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, lighter nuts, and a little earthy. evanrail (74) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle via MN from the big TO. Clear deep amber with a thick, microfoam head. The nose is of maple syrup, cinnamon-spice and the aromas of a farmhouse breakfast. In the mouth you get a surprisingly thin body with more spice notes rinsing to a sweet, malty finish. Breathes out as a whiff of caramel-covered espresso beans (those don’t exist), or the last drop of baked-bean sauce. But like, in the good way.

Bottle @ Rhino. Deep, dark, almost opaque amber brown. Inky aroma. Low carbonation. Metallic and mild.
