Bottle, opened with a nice hiss. Poured black with some dark brown fringes. Tall tan foamy head that dissipates to a thin creamy cap. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, some dark chocolate for bitterness. Taste is heavy roasted malt as well, some booziness towards the end. Medium body and clean finish.

Couleur brune tirant sur le noir avec un col respectable beige. Au nez de notes de grains torréfiés du chocolat et de céréales sucrés. En bouche la description est bonne, une lager avec des notes de chocolat et grains torréfiés. Pas trop mon style mais c’est pas mauvais!

Deep black pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma has a bit of roast and some nice toasted/roasted malt character and a bit of licorice along with a touch of toffee and some light fruit with a bit of char. Lightly sweet and a little bit chocolatey. A little bit herbal on the back as well. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a small khaki head of foam. Roasty espresso, dark cocoa, fig, brown sugar caramels, black cherry and cola notes. Somewhat sweet with decent earthy hopping that provides a little bitterness, not much from the roast however. Clean on the palate with a hint of booziness, moderate plus body and full carbonation. One of the better beers from these folks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours darker than Stephen Harper’s sad little heart with a foamy one finger cap that stays longer than a drunken party guest. Taste is yesterday’s espresso, roasted malts, & boozy goodness. Say what you want about Beau’s but this years Octoberfest interpretations of German brewing staples is pretty righteous. Not often that I pickup a mixer pack from the LCBO & find each beer in it wavering between inspired & satisfying.

Intense dark roast, and alot of bitterness. Bitter cocoa, and some strong coffee notes. A thin lager like mouth feel, and low to medium carb. The finish is again, quite bitter with pine resin notes. Alcohol is very well hidden, and this is quite drinkable. Interesting take on the style.

Poured from a bottle, black almost opaquely with a tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is cold coffee and some light caramel. The taste has lots of smooth roasted flavor, dark coffee and light toffee very smooth. Awesome beer!
