3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. True to it’s name, this is a dark brown beer with a paper-thin light brown head that dissipates very quickly. Aroma is rich caramel and chocolate. The taste follows the nose, though it seems a bit less rich than the scent. Smooth, ever-so-slightly creamy feel. I would have hoped for a bit more taste, but otherwise a pretty decent brew.

Can. Dark cola with a nice tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and cocoa. Taste follows and adds some caramel. Very light and creamy mouthfeel. Good but could use a bit of roastiness or something to balance the sweetness.

Nice large head with good retention. Opaque copper/brown. Wonderful caramel, roast, chocolate, citrus and heavy malt aroma. Delectable. Smooth and creamy texture coupled with initial flavours of caramel, malt, and chocolate and finishing with a mildly sour/grassy hop. Very good, although could be slightly more hoppy and carbonated.
