3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap into a shaker showing pitch black with sparse white foam.
The nose shows extremely subtle latte notes.
The palate is light bodied and extremely well carbonated - it’s mostly just a mouth full of foam. Shows dark chocolate with very light coffee flavors more akin to a latte. Bitterness is also light and easy like a latte.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver; 414ml
Dark brown color, served with no head. Aroma of dark malts, cocoa powder, impression of chemicals (phenol). Lean body, despite the high initial gravity; the flavor focuses too much in dark caramel, with a clear presence of heavily roasted nuts in the final; light residual sweetness. Rather simple in its conception.
It’s a decent beer, but I regret getting a large glass of it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours jet black with a small tan head. Nose brings out rich notes of chocolate upfront, followed by roast and some dry cocoa powder. Flavour is similar, bringing out a rich balanced palate of cocoa powder and roasted malt, with a touch of coffee and even smaller touch of vanilla. Robust and impeccably balanced big beer. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Dark chocolate and roast. Jet deep brown with a light brown head. Dark roast and chocolate with a syrupy chocolate bitterness. Roasty and nice, but none of the dark fruit I hoped for.
