On tap at the brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown with copper notes and very strong beige head. Aroma is a little bit grassy and roasted malt. Taste is the same, not rich. Very easy drinkable stuff. Probably would be a very good if paired with oyesters, but alone it is just meh.

Kleg (50) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Draft @ Deep Cove. Pitch black pour with a tight nitro beige head and awesome retention. Good lacing. Really creamy and smooth. Light roasty flavor. Yummy.

Aroma is quite light. Some light toasted malts but somewhat flat overall. Unfortunately the palate of caramel and toffee falls flat and is pretty watered down. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle, shared I believe with Eric. Medium brown, lively head. Roasted malt and plastic, thin. Gross. Two sips then drain pour. I’d give it a second chance on the odds that this is an off bottle, but yikes....

Black,poor fast fading tan head.Nose of light roast/brown sugar.Nearly flat watery light roast palate.Light lasting bitterness in finish.Supposedly decent on tap, but very poor in bottles. One to avoid

Ferris (12922) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
Draft - Nitro - Roast malts and some chocolate. Deep black brown with a rich brown head. Roasty, light coffee and some chocolate. Nice and easy drinking.

Gerbeer (3158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap. Pours black with full, beautiful tan nitro head. Aromas of choloate and roasted malts. Flavors of light coffee, creamy milk chocolate, and dry roasted malts. A bit thin but very smooth and quite nice.

reebtogi (5754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
650ml bottle pours black in color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with a hint of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with generous carbonation providing a pleasant sensation on the palate. Overall, this is a well done brew that suits the style well.

mcberko (14678) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at Deep Cove, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small tan nitro head. Nose is fairly metallic, with some feint powdery unsweetened cocoa. Flavour is along those lines, being very metallic and toasted, but also smooth on the palate. Quite drinkable due to the palate feel, but the flavours aren’t overly thrilling. Not so good, but certainly drinkable.

pictoman (938) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Black with beige head. Milky, light chocolate, mild roast malts. Light body, a bit weak.
