Pours black with huge tan coloured head that leaves a nice lace all the way up the glass. Aromas consist of roasted malt, coffee, light noble hops, a clean nose. Flavours consists of rich bitter chocolate that lasts through the finish, medium bitterness which lingers a bit, crisp flavour that is dry on the finish.

Lots of mocha head. Jet black can’t see into it. Smells fimiliar. Smells smoked and like mocha. Taste its a little thick, a littl watery(a tad just to remind you it s a lager)because its a bitter smokey mocha boozy more dark bock/stout tasteing beer. Reminds me of like mocha stout by souther teir and like mocha boozy beers I had b4. Winter time beer its like. You can taste and feel the % some and its really good. Cheer’s.!!!

Metalchopz (3030) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia in Ottawa, ON. Written on front label, packaged SEP 24 12. Pours a dark brown colour with red highlights. The head is big, foamy, beige coloured, long lasting and with dirty lacing. Beautiful roasted malt aromas with notes of dark fruits, coffee and molasses. No alcohol burning at all, not even warming. Goes down refreshing with a silky mouthfeel. Nicely balanced between the roasted malt and hop. Not too powerful, making this a beautiful strong schwarbier that has great drinkability. Was great with the food from Pub Italia. For those who want the flavours of a dark beer, but not the heavy body.

[4852-20121008] Tap. Light coffee grounds Aroma seems a little soured. Black body with a long-lasting foamy light tan head. Bitter roasted malt spark flavour finishes with roasted raisin wood notes. Full body. Really interesting, like Darth had soured over the years and this was the biggest schwartz he could mustard. (7/4/7/4/16) 3.8
(Brewer’s Backyard @ Brickworks, Toronto, ON)

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
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.

RhetoricalAns (816) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
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.

HippyHop (600) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
This came from the same mixer pack everyone else bought. I’ll skip the deets as they’ve been covered below, but this stuff is really nice. It’s got all these stout-like characteristics, mouthfeel is wonderfully creamy, and yet it’s still kind of light and crisp. Solid.
