12oz can dated 5/22/2013 poured into a CCB snifter today 6/6/2013. Thanks to RaffyS for throwing a couple of these in as extras! I've had this on tap at the brewery about 7 months ago, but I'm basing this review solely off this new can.

Aroma: Nice! People are saying the nose is subtle but it's really not. Lots of toffee, with hints in the background of milk chocolate and caramel, with a bit of bitter coffee. Good robust nose, not overpowering. A nice potpourri of roasted malts. (4.25)

Colour: Pours a mahogany brown with a fluffy 2cm brown head that begins to dissipate almost instantly, like its vaporizing. As the head recedes within a minute, I see a placid mahogany/brown maple liquid body. No lacing to be found on the glass. A placid brew. (3.75)

Flavour: Definitely does not lack in the department. A generous heaping of toffee, chocolate and caramel sweetness that is offset by some espresso and/or black coffee and earthy bitterness. Very nice! It's very flavourful and refreshing- it has the flavour and aroma profile of a bigger porter in a 5.5% can. (4.25)

Mouthfeel: Thicker side of the thin body classification, thinner than some typical brown ales but somehow this is a very creamy and refreshing beer. It's incredibly refreshing and thirst-quenching with 5.5% ABV which I know I'm not going to feel. Aftertaste is a mix of milk chocolate sweetness and bitter black coffee. (4)

Overall: It's a very refreshing brown ale that packs a lot of flavour and aroma- a very similar profile to a good porter like Edmund Fitzgerald or Black Butte, but the beer is on the thinner side and incredibly quaffable. It's like you crossed the flavour/aroma profile of Edmund Fitzgerald with the body and drinkability of an AAL. I like this one a lot! (4)
