Another one from the brewery. Pours black as night, with almost no head and some tan lacing around the sides of the glass. This one would go really well on a day that you are out in the backyard grilling. Slightly oily, with a burnt kind of day old coffee taste and very full-bodied. Worth a try.

Pours a gorgeous very dark brown with a perpetual, flat, creamy, one-finger, smooth head. Unassuming nose. Smooth as silk. It’s a little cold, so the flavors don’t emerge properly. After the beer finishes, smokiness and plastic and a little caramel.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Faint hints of chocolate and coffee, but you almost have to stick your nose in the beer to get them.
Appearance: Dark mahogany with rich tan head.
Taste: Light sweetness throughout, with a bitter finish at the end.
Palate: Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation, dry finish.
Overall: Very thin and underdeveloped. Not really a good offering at all.

Very little aroma. It poured dark with no head. The taste was flat with little taste of what’s in the beer.

Lasting beige head, dark cola coloured hue. Hazelnutty malts procure a dark chocolate feel that leafy hops somehow passes easily. Interesting, if mellow, developing date, anise, cigar and cola notes take form among the evolving roastiness, but everything is too subtle and there’s a bit too much tartness to my tastes..
