Pours a nearly opaque black/red colour with virtually no head. Aroma notes of plum, coffee, weak coffee, and some raisin. Tasting notes include toasty malts, toffee, coffee, roasted oats. Not bad, I remember trying this years ago and was not impressed. They must have changed the recipe, overall a good beginner beer for those stepping into the craft beer world.

Can. Pours dark amber with no head. Aroma of sweet malt, black current. Taste is similar, slightly sweet and malty, very low bitterness. Light mouth feel.

Sometimes it is what it is....flat brown pour, sweet malts, light bitterness, overall easy drinker. I think the Brewmaster can try to make a better version of this beer by his hand.

Bottle in cleveland, a dark lager, nothing to say here, it was light and refreshing with some tones of barley, but that’s it.

Looks dark, tastes light. It’s Ontario’s favourite dark lager. A dark beer that is slowly brewed with Canadian grown malted barley, specialty coloured malts, imported hops and pure cultured brewers yeast. Dark lagers are enjoyed all year long,

Light tasting, underlying slight hoppy taste, decent flavour that doesn't overwhelm. It's what you'd expect from a solid lager, the deception is in the look, it has a Stout like appearance. Good beer all year round.

Toasted malt aroma, medium sweet taste, very mild bitterness. Honestly not bad considering the artificial flavor, but I definitely wouldn’t classify it with the craft brews in the area.
