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.

Who has ever tasted a dark beer that isn’t a porter? This blew me away with how easy it was to drink.

GreenJeremy (71) - Spruce Grove, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
dark brown color with a light tan head. Malty aroma, with some sweet bread and a little bit roasty. Taste is bready with a little bit of a chocolately roasty flavour. Hops are present but very subtle. Bit of a dry finish, nice summers drink.

AgentAle (992) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Aroma is a light roasted malt character with slight hopiness. Taste is slight creaminess, roasted malts and a dry bitterness. Somewhat bland, finishes somewhat watered down with not a whole lot of complexity. Body is a dark brown (clear). Head is pearl white and retains poorly.

Rating #1031 - March 19, 2014 - Bottle from Cameron’s mix 4pk shared with clients. Clear dark brown pour with a foamy tan head, medium retention. Aroma is toffee and roast malts. Taste is mild sweetness, hint of toffee with dominant maltiness. Mild bitterness in otherwise crisp and balanced finish. Very nice.

reebtogi (4614) - 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 (1225) - 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!
