3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown with a massive beige head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is liquorice, molasses, dark grapes, dates, hint of smoke and leather. Creamy mouthfeel, interesting blend on the palate - subtle hints of sour, salty, fruity sweetness, and smoke. Taste is chocolate, red wine, salty liquorice, dates, juniper, hint of coffee.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is sour with tart berries, vinegar, roast. Flavour is sour dominant - cherries, wood. Some licorice and roast comes through. Weird. I donít care for it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquors for $21.90.... Hoping I wonít regret this. Nose of sour porter, some mild molasses but overall sour. Minor soya but thin and berry tart. Odd but likeable yet I cannot imagine they were aiming for this result.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml bottl2. Pours black with a medium head of big bubbles that settle quickly. Aromas of vinegar, roasted malt, and some dark fruit. Flavors of acidic dark juice and malt. Not on the money.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml corked bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that settles quite quickly leaving some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some dark fruits (red wine grapes?) and hints of smoke. Taste is a dark fruit sweetness with a dry red wine type finish with some alcohol burn. Medium to heavy body with light carbonation. Definitely in line for the style with the appropriate sweetness and color. Interesting brew that I recommend others to sample.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Molasses and dark fruits with a hint of anise. Jet black with a persistent small tan head. Sweet up front, roasted malts, a toasted finish. You can taste the alcohol, but it is appropriate, and nice dark fruits. Body is very light and although interesting is not what I would want or expect from a beer such at this.
