3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served chilled in a shaker. Hazy, dark brown body with a tan/creme head. Head was quick to dissipate, cutting off the freshly painted coffee shop aroma. Beer has a nice light body with only mild carbonation and a long, slightly bitter tail. The beer’s flavour is very basic - slightly bitter take on a traditional lager. Overall an average beer, good choice for party goers with a preference for dark beers that aren’t filling.

Pours dark brown with a plentiful tan head. Aromas are malty, grainy and a bit stale. Taste is mostly sweet malts with a somewhat sour finish. The body is quite thin and watery, with an alcoholic aftertaste. Not that good.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 473ml can. Pours a dark ruby with an off white head that thins quickly. Aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and slight dark fruits. Taste is on the malty side with hints of dark fruits, bread, and caramel. Short finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and crisp in the mouth. Almost refreshing. Overall worth a try for sure. Cheers!

Nice caramel aroma. Deep amber colour with a thin but productive head. Dissipates quickly. Little sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Light body with a thin texture and lively carbonation.
Very enjoyable. Not overpowering. Very refreshing. I could drink several of these. Minimal aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is of yeast and bread. Color is dark but not opaque. The head is white and short lived. Taste is sweet, malty, bready, some bock like qualities without the body. Other tasting notes subtle toffee, brown sugar and clove notes. It finishes very sweet and leaves a syrupy molasses taste on the palate. Palate wise its kinda of thin. Overall, it is ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours coca cola dark with a soda fountain cap that fades from foam to nothingness. Aroma is a tad on the meh side of things. Taste is ok. Heavy on the lager. The darkness here is mostly superficial. But I kinda got a soft spot for this brew -- used to love drinking it out of the stubbies back in the day. It’s a good can for shoving up a chickens butt on the bbq.

Sample at Primo’s Deli. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt and slight hops. Light body with flavors of grainy malt, chocolate and mild hops. The finish is slightly roasty with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Just average overall.
