COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was originally brewed as a one-off draught beer for our specialty beer bars. The demand was so high for a return that we decided to bottle this one and share it with everyone. A deceptively dark brew that is fermented using lager yeast, our Dark266 is actually a much lighter tasting beer than one would anticipate. One try and we’re sure you’ll "have a dark side" too.

Zenwolf (268) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle. Dark nutty brown with a light tan head. Very light in the nose and the body.. Thin nutty and slight malt in both. Very dry but smooth finish. Decent, but not one I will be trying again.

cyrenaica (1095) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
341ml bottle 4.5% ABV I tried this beer on August 11, 2010 after purchasing a 4 pack of Mixed Cameron’s beers from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent dark brown with reddish hints and a half inch white bubble head. The aroma was roasded malt, nuts, and some caramel. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, some sweetness, and a roasted bitter finish. Nothing spectacular

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
12oz courtesy of peteinsd. Pours a clear amber with a large, gray, semi-rocky head that has actually some good retention but no lace. Aroma has slight raisins, English tea, wort. Taste is like filtered wort (slight butter, oatmeal, tea, water. Where is the body and alcohol? Was it fermented? Because even wort by itself can produce a head. I think they forgot to put the wort into primary and ended up sheet filtering the wort and bottling it.

33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Deep amber colour, mostly caramel aroma. Light bodied, some hints of chocolate with a sweet bright finish.

fullers (268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle. LCBO purchase. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. Pleasant fruity aroma. Soft mouth feel, no edge or bite. Taste fleeting, disappearing quickly from palate with a chalky aftertaste. Notes of caramel and burnt sugar. Not a beer to revisit.

Metalchopz (2559) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2010
Purchased in Toronto at a LCBO. Part 3 of 3 dark brown beer that are tested. This one pours a clean brown colour just like the two other brews had tonight (Black Oak Nut Brown and King Dark Lager). Its beige head is not as creamy, not as big and does not stay up as long. The lacing is therefor smaller. The nose is pretty light with dark malt, molasses and raisins. The mouthfeel is not as thin as the others, but still watery. There is a metallic touch in the flavours, with the dark malts and some brown sugar. Other than that, not much here. Was expecting so much more, being that I really like this brewery.

DerWeg (1548) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009
Nice clear dark brown pour with pale highlights, and a silent tan head that sinks in. Smells lightly sweet with a hint of very inviting dark fruit. Taste shows very little ’lager crispness’ or hops to it and leans to a more light cherry-raisin fruit of a Mild Dark ale or something like that. A bit grape with hint of late hop bitterness. Long subtle aftertaste has toffee coffee and chocolate all hinted at. I believe the style is looked down at but in some cases like right here this brewer has a certain simple genius. Like a masterfully brewed Schwartzbier, the sum is greater than all parts.

Bov (10215) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 9, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson (WBA) - clear dark ruby-amber colour with a solid and persistent beige foam; the nose is quite mineral with notes of biscuit, strong herbal notes; sticky mouthfeel, sweet and medium- to full-bodied, very watery and short finish with light notes of caramel - modest

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - MAR 21, 2009
Pours a mahogany brown with a thin white cap. The aroma is malty, a little toasty, a bit of nuttiness. And the flavour is pretty much an exact reflection of the aroma. All and all its a tasty refreshing brew, however I much prefer there cream ale.
