Opaque black - brown beer, decent pale tan head. Palate is crisp and dry. Fine crispness. Mild dark malts, some roast and a little tangy coffee. Very light pine hops with an equally light amount of generic fruits, slightly candy like. Dry finish. Not that CDA like in character but it’s pretty drinkable.

Almost opaque dark ruby-black color, good creamy beige head. Light coffeish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrusy hoppyness, coffee with some caramel. Quite short finish. Label said "schwarzbier" but this tastes more like a black IPA.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Dark brown, woody, hops...nice aroma. Bitter, crackery, balanced hops, toast, has good balance. Not a hop blast, but a good, balanced variant.
