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.

sample pack lcbo craft brewers discovery. 341ml bottle pours a very dark brown opaque with a small lingering head. Aroma I get bread, roast nuts hint of coffee. Body is smooth/creamy with lively carbonation with a slight bitter finish. Not as complex as I thought would be, and very light overall, sort of a disappointment as I was expecting more. Overall though an ok dark lager.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
341ml bottle pours dark brown to black in color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with some grass and hints of chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain, grassy and herbal hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium body. A decent dark lager, worth trying once.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
341 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a tall, frothy tan head that fades slowly and laces well. The nose has notes of roasted malts, molasses, anise, grass, herbal hops and a hint of smoke. The flavour is balanced, slightly sweet and slightly hoppy with big herbal notes, roast malts and some molasses. The finish is medium in length, herbal and roasty. On the palate, it is light-medium in body, with a watery texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a decent dark lager with a surprisingly light body. It is well brewed, but not the most complex. 2013-05-17

I love a dark ale and this beer does not disappoint! Love the chocolate and coffee undertones. Perfect for these cold fall nights!

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
[bottle] Toasted hazelnut aroma with sweet caramel malt and milk chocolate. Clear, very dark brown with orange highlights and a white ring. Sweet dark malt with some caraway and a touch of cardboard. Flowery accents. Balanced toward sweet, though a low bitterness is present. Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet and sour, nutty finish.

JulienHuxley (2512) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour with thin white foam. Aroma is malty, carbon toasted, light caramel notes but mostly very roasty. Malty, roasty flavor, vegetal hop flavor (very light), light malty finish, rather dry, a bit watery. Palate is light bodied with light-med carb. Easy drinking but easily forgettable.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune-ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de grains de malt rôtis, léger de noix avec des notes de café ainsi que des traces de de houblon herbeux. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faibles notes de tabac lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt moyennement rôtis avec des notes de pain grillé et quelques traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des traces de noix et de café. Post-goût moyen-court, très légèrement amer de rôti avec des traces de houblon herbeux et de café.

Bottle 341ml: clear redish brown color with small beige head. Aromas of coffee, nuts, and caramel. Taste is similar with some earthyness and a somewhat herbal note. thin in the mouth. Just Ok.
