Malty is the word used by Neustadt that highlights this offering. And its low carbonation is a distinguishing trait. Mild, not risky, is how its taste strikes me. As a brown ale, it's worth a try.

Purchased at the LCBO after seeing it for years. Just under $3.00 for a 473ml can like usual. Served at 7deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a nice head that dissipates in a minute. Dark for sure

S- Not the best but nice caramel and malt.

T- Malt bomb pure and simple

M- Good considering it's a single minded beer

O- Pretty good. Won't buy again though

Food Pairing

This ok beer went well with... Pork Ribs. Seasoned and braised in the oven

Enjoy
Decided to try one more time. Raised everything up a quarter point. It is a good beer and I will buy again.

Re-review of this beer after picking up a 473 ml can from the LCBO.

Appearance - Cola brown pours into pint glass giving rise to 1/2 finger of off-white head which dissipates quickly. Beer itself is deep ruby red when held up to direct light.

Smell - Chocolate, kiss of cherry, slight bready malts. Maybe a few other dark fruits thrown in. Focus is definitely cherry and chocolate.

Taste - Slightly boozy dessert, fruit filled dark chocolate. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A touch too boozy for my tastes after initial fruit explosion up front.

Mouthfeel - Medium finish and carbonation, with a certain richness to it that clearly indicates "This is not a light beer." Nice smooth feel in the mouth.

Overall - Not sure what the problem on why I didn't enjoy this last time, whether my tastes have changed, or whether pouring this into a glass made that much of a difference. Pretty damn good beer, but restricted to no more than a couple.

Special thanks to cattersley for sending this brew out west.

A: Clear dark brown with slight ruby hue when held to the light. Minimal light tan head which dissipated rather quickly leaving traces of lacing.

S: Brown sugar together with caramel and molasses, dried figs and hints of toasted nuts.

T: Sweet syrups of molasses, caramel, toffee and maple syrup with background notes of dried figs, toasted nuts and yeast. Very subtle bitter notes of hops in the finish.

M: Smooth light to medium bodied with mild carbonation.

O: This is a very malt forward beer with great flavours of caramel, molasses and dark fruits. The lack of any noticeable hops leaves this somewhat unbalanced.
